  • Patent number: 11358027
    Abstract: A non-limiting example training instrument comprises a hollow main body formed of an aluminum alloy. The main body is constituted by two gripping portions opposite to each other with a space therebetween and a coupling portion coupling the two gripping portions. A load sensor is arranged in the coupling portion inside the main body. The load sensor is a load cell, a strain gauge affixed to an interior of the main body, and a part of the main body to which the strain gauge is affixed functions as a strain body. Therefore, if a user applies a force so as to bring the two gripping portions close to each other or a force so as to move the two gripping portions away from each other, a load thereof is detected by the load sensor.

  • Patent number: 11224800
    Abstract: An example game controller includes L and R buttons provided in both left and right end portions on an upper surface of a housing and ZL and ZR buttons provided to sides of the L and R buttons closer to a back surface of the game controller. The ZL/ZR button includes a protruding portion protruding in the direction of the back surface of the game controller and the direction of a side surface of the game controller. This makes it possible to increase the area of an upper surface of a key top of the ZL/ZR button and improve the operability of the ZL/ZR button.

  • Publication number: 20210278687
    Abstract: A stabilizing device is provided with a correction mechanism that moves a target object, a control circuit that controls the correction mechanism, and an angular velocity sensor that detects a rotational angular velocity associated with an attitude change of the stabilizing device. When a specified mode is set, the control circuit controls the correction mechanism on a basis of a control angular velocity computed internally by the stabilizing device or a control angular velocity acquired from a source external to the stabilizing device, and at least rotates the target object.

  • Patent number: 10972664
    Abstract: An image blurring correction apparatus includes: an angular-velocity sensor that detects an angular velocity; and a processor. The processor includes: a first-panning detection section that detects first panning on the basis of the angular velocity; a LPF processing section that performs LPF processing on the angular velocity; a second-panning detection section that detects second panning that has a panning velocity that is lower than that of the first panning on the basis of a processing result of the LPF processing section; a HPF processing section that performs HPF processing on the angular velocity; a calculation section that calculates an image-blurring-correction amount on the basis of a detection result of the first-panning detection section or a detection result of the second-panning detection section, and a processing result of the HPF processing section; and a drive circuit that drives an image-blurring-correction mechanism on the basis of the image-blurring-correction amount.
