  • Publication number: 20200363076
    Abstract: An air conditioning unit that blows out temperature-controlled air to a front side indoors, includes: a fan; a rectangular casing in which the fan is disposed; and an air passage forming member that is disposed on an air-flow downstream side of the fan and that forms an air passage having a circular cross-sectional shape. The rectangular casing has a first side, a second side, a third side, and a fourth side when viewed from a front direction of the casing. The first side is parallel to the second side, and the third side is parallel to the fourth side. A smaller one of a first distance between the first side and the second side and a second distance between the third side and the fourth side is no greater than 2.5 times a diameter of a cross section of the air passage.

  • Patent number: 9084935
    Abstract: A cartridge, which is an attachment device, is mountable into an insertion slot in a game apparatus. At a side surface inside the insertion slot, a slide member is movable from a near side to a far side. The attachment device includes a housing and a hook. When the attachment device is inserted into the insertion slot, a predetermined portion of the housing abuts against the slide member, and the slide member is caused to move toward the far side of the insertion slot when the predetermined portion is inserted further inside while abutting against the slide member. The hook is inserted into a recessed portion generated at the side surface inside the insertion slot when the slide member moves toward the far side of the insertion slot, and then latches onto the inside wall.
