  • Patent number: 11181151
    Abstract: A transmission that suppresses a tilt of a slider in an axial direction and reduces a dimension of the slider in the axial direction for downsizing is provided. A transmission includes a fifth-speed driven gear disposed on a counter shaft, a fifth-speed driving gear that always meshes with the fifth-speed driven gear and disposed on a main shaft, and a first slider disposed on the counter shaft to be movable in the axial direction in accordance with a shift operation. The first slider includes first dog recesses. The fifth-speed driven gear includes fifth-speed dog projections configured to mesh with the first dog recesses. The fifth-speed driven gear includes a fifth-speed driven gear protrusion only on a location closer to a radially outer peripheral end thereof than the counter shaft. The fifth-speed driven gear protrusion protrudes in the axial direction so as to contact the first slider when the first slider falls in the axial direction.

  • Patent number: 10558048
    Abstract: A game system 100 to which an image display system is applied contains a head-mounted display 300 having a camera for capturing a real world and a display for displaying video information obtained by integrating real-world video information captured by the capturing part with virtual-world video information, a motion sensor 400 for detecting movement of a body of a wearer wearing the head-mounted display 300 as movement information and a marker 200 used for detecting position information of the wearer. The game system 100 controls the virtual-world video information based on the movement information and the position information. According to this configuration, it is possible to control the video information displayed on the head-mounted display according to the position and the movement of the wearer. Further, the present invention provides a method for controlling the image display system, an image distribution system and a head-mounted display.
