  • Publication number: 20130292466
    Abstract: A remote code reader system sends a code read by a code reader to an appropriate function by utilizing identification information assigned specific to a client in order to select a function. A barcode reader and a host computer connected to a network are included therein. An ID (pen ID) of the barcode reader 1 and a barcode as read are transmitted to the host computer through a terminal connected to the network. The host computer decodes the received pen ID to select a CGI which conforms to the pen ID, and sends the barcode to the CGI 9 as selected in order to make the CGI process it.

  • Patent number: 8128533
    Abstract: Each time stepping motion of a player by a stepper 1 is detected, one firework object 214 appears on a television monitor 100 and then disappears. Each a predetermined number of times of the stepping motion of the player is detected, a more spectacular firework object than that of one step is displayed.

  • Patent number: 8083604
    Abstract: A stroboscope is utilized as an input device of a golf game system (10), for example. The golf game system includes a game machine (12) as an information processing apparatus and a golf-club-shaped input device (14), and within a housing of the game machine, an imaging unit (28) is housed, and the imaging unit is provided with an image sensor (40) and an infrared-LED. By utilizing the infrared-LED, an infrared ray is intermittently emitted to a predetermined range of an upper portion of the imaging unit. Accordingly, the image sensor intermittently images a reflective body provided in the golf-club-shaped input device moving within the range. Such the stroboscope image processing of the reflective body enables calculation of a velocity, and so on as an input of the game machine.

  • Publication number: 20110093943
    Abstract: A terminal 5 to which a USB device 7 is connected accesses a host computer 1 firstly to transmit a serial number of the USB device 7. The host computer 1 accesses a database 11 with the serial number as an index to retrieve a URL related to the serial number, and instructs the terminal to access the URL. Hence, a WEB page is sent from a WEB server W-2 addressed by the URL to the terminal 5, and is displayed on the terminal 5. In this way, the host computer 1 can subsequently determine the WEB server to be accessed in accordance with the serial number because of the fact of absolutely passing through the host computer 1.

  • Publication number: 20100025470
    Abstract: A photo-transistor 31 is arranged to overlap with a light emitting diode 33 in a longitudinal direction of a barcode reader 7 and on a side, to which the light emitting diode 33 emits light. In this case, the photo-transistor 31 and the light emitting diode 33 are arranged on the same optical axis. As the result, since depth of focus and depth of field overlap with each other in the optical axial direction, it is believed that resolution in reading a bar-code is secured in wide range in the optical axis direction. The depth of focus includes an image point when the light emitting diode 33 is positioned at an object point. The depth of field includes an object point when the photo-transistor 31 is positioned at an image point.
