Abstract: In a box assembly device, a holding mechanism causes one of bottom boards to contact a first jig and folds the bottom board inside, while the holding mechanism holding the box material in a state where the box material is developed in a cylindrical shape from a folded state. The folding mechanism folds the bottom flap inside so as to overlap with one of the bottom boards. The holding mechanism causes the other bottom board to contact the second jig while holding the box material and folds the other bottom board inside and upwardly so as to overlap with the bottom flap to engage the bottom boards with each other.

Abstract: The problem to be solved is to provide a tensioner lever that inhibits friction-induced wear or seizure on a surface of a pivoting support boss contacting a shoulder bolt so that high durability is achieved, and that is easily producible and enables cost reduction. As a solution to the problem noted above, the tensioner lever includes a shoe having a traveling surface, a lever body, and a pivotal support boss provided at a proximal end of the lever body to allow a distal end thereof to swing. The shoe and the lever body are integrally formed and assembled together by double injection molding. The lever body includes a slide bearing member, and a connecting part that connects the slide bearing member and the shoe. The slide bearing member, the connecting part, and the shoe are made of the same synthetic resin, and configured as a continuous one-piece component.

Abstract: A solar cell module includes: a first solar cell; a second solar cell disposed apart from the first solar cell with a space therebetween; a first light reflector disposed on an edge portion of the first solar cell, and overlapping the space; and a second light reflector disposed on an edge portion of the second solar cell, and overlapping the space.
Abstract: A server is an interactive system that performs the interaction by performing a reverse question with respect to an input by the user and providing response content. An input acquisition unit and an answer generation unit constitute an interaction execution unit that repeatedly performs the interaction until a question sentence and an answer, which are the response content, satisfy a prescribed condition. Further, the stoppage determination execution unit performs control for stopping the interaction performed by the input acquisition unit and the answer generation unit based on the interaction state by the user or the other user. In a case where the interaction is stopped, the output unit provides the question sentence and the answer thereof at the time of stoppage to the communication terminal.
Abstract: An imaging method is provided that includes: taking an image of an object to generate an image signal of the object; generating a taken image of the object on a basis of the image signal; detecting motion information of the object on the basis of the image signal; taking an image of the object on a basis of the motion information multiple times so as to differentiate an exposure amount thereof; and generating an HDR synthetic image of the object on the basis of a plurality of image signals whose exposure amounts are different from each other.
Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to provide a suitable user-friendliness to a user regarding a recommendation of application software on a portable information terminal.
