  • Patent number: 9961321
    Abstract: A video is generated from multi-aspect images. For each frame of the output video, a provisional video is created with provisional images which are used to designate a position of a target object on which to focus and to acquire a depth map showing a depth of the object, and which are reconstructed using default values from LFIs as the frames. Then, information designating coordinates of focal positions of the target object on the provisional video is acquired. A list creator acquires the depth value of the target object using a depth map created from the LFI of the current frame, and records this in a designation list after obtaining the reconstruction distance from the depth value. A corrector corrects the designation list. A main video creator creates and outputs a main video with reconstructed images focused at a focal length designated by the post-correction designation list as frames.

  • Patent number: 9961636
    Abstract: An electronic device system of the present invention includes a first terminal device having a first wireless communicating section which performs wireless communication and a second terminal device having a second wireless communicating section which performs wireless communication and being configured to enter a sleep mode where an operation of part of circuits of the second wireless communicating section is stopped. The first wireless communicating section of the first terminal device generates and transmits a start notification signal which is not a modulated signal wave for releasing the sleep mode of the second terminal device. The second wireless communicating section of the second terminal device in the first sleep mode receives the start notification signal transmitted from the first wireless communicating section of the first terminal device and releases the sleep mode of the second terminal device depending on the value of the electric power of the start notification signal.

  • Patent number: 9961505
    Abstract: A radio communication terminal receives position information showing a position of another radio communication terminal. The radio communication terminal obtains, from the position information, a terminal ID of the radio communication terminal, and a beacon ID for identifying the predetermined location nearest to the radio communication terminal. The radio communication terminal accepts the predetermined location designated by a user. The radio communication terminal determines as a communication partner terminal, the other radio communication terminal that is nearest to the accepted predetermined location based on the terminal ID and the beacon ID. The radio communication terminal performs communication with the determined communication partner terminal.

  • Patent number: 9955764
    Abstract: A drawing device includes: a finger holding case including a plurality of walls (a bottom wall, left and right sidewalls, a rear wall, and a top wall) surrounding a finger insertion opening into which a finger having a nail to be drawn on is inserted as well as an opening exposing the nail and a finger presser to which a fluid is supplied in order prevent movement of the finger by applying pressure between the finger and the finger holding case and from which the fluid is discharged to stop applying pressure. When the finger presser is not preventing movement of the finger, one of the walls (the top wall or the bottom wall) of the finger holding case moves in order to expand a space between the finger holding case and the finger.
