  • Patent number: 11198072
    Abstract: A toy device for dispensing stackable or rollable materials and related methods are described. The device has a housing arranged to contain a stack or roll of material and having a dispensing aperture. A manually actuated drive mechanism is provided by which a user can rotate a drive wheel of the drive mechanism. The drive wheel contacts and when rotated engages a portion of the material and to drive it through the dispensing aperture. A release mechanism is provided that can be moved to allow the material to be driven through the aperture. The drive mechanism can be actuated independently from the release mechanism.

  • Patent number: 11175732
    Abstract: An apparatus for virtual reality simulation includes a first base part and a second base part arranged to rotate relative to each other about a common axis. The apparatus also includes means for determining an angle between the first base part and the second base part. The second base part may be provided with a chair on which a user of the apparatus may sit during use of the apparatus. The means for determining an angle between the first base part and the second base part enables the apparatus to determine the direction in which the user is facing, relative to the first base part, after relative movement of the first base part and the second base part.
