  • Patent number: 11120704
    Abstract: A writing implement, including a pen tube, a guiding element, a motion sensor, and a controller. An end portion of the pen tube is provided with a nib. The guiding element and the motion sensor are disposed on the pen tube, and the guiding element is controlled by the controller. In the process of writing, the motion sensor detects words and pencraft characteristics when a user holds the pen tube for writing, and the controller controls the guiding element to generate a guiding force to guide the words and pencraft characteristics when writing, to approach or be equal to words and pencraft characteristics prepared to be written. Therefore, the present invention may train a user to copy the handwriting of a master or actively guide the user to wield the pen by means of the writing implement.

  • Patent number: 11110737
    Abstract: A nib holder. The nib holder includes a case having a nib insertion slot. A slider is contained within the case and has a plurality of connection pins and slider connection threads. A pusher is contained within the case and has a plurality of sliding slots. The pusher utilizes the sliding slots to establish a sliding connection to the slider via the slider's connection pins. A stopper is contained within the case. The stopper prevents horizontal motion of the pusher but permits vertical motion of the pusher. An adjuster has adjuster connection threads and utilizes the connection threads to mesh with the connection threads of the slider to establish a threaded connection. A nib is connected to the nib holder by insertion of the nib into the nib insertion slot and then rotation of the adjuster to raise the pusher vertically so that the nib is compressed between the pusher and the case.

  • Patent number: 11096474
    Abstract: A hand attachable animal washing apparatus, attachable upon the hand of a user, enables singlehanded control of waterflow and application of water into the coat of an animal. Control of waterflow though a molded body member is enabled by operation of a compressible portion disposed to control a valve assembly disposed interiorly within the molded body member. A proximal arced edge is disposed projected rearwardly from the molded body member and curved downward to direct waterflow away from a user operating the device, particularly when the device is elevated above a user, as when washing a large animal such as a horse, for example. A user may thereby control and apply water to an animal with one hand while securing and comforting the animal with the other hand.
