  • Patent number: 10653971
    Abstract: A first grounded portion is at least one of portions of an apparatus that are grounded, and vibrates in accordance with a vibration of at least a first vibration unit. A second grounded portion is at least one of the portions of the apparatus that are grounded, and vibrates in accordance with a vibration of at least a second vibration unit. Then, a first control signal for controlling the vibration of the first vibration unit and a second control signal for controlling the vibration of the second vibration unit are generated, whereby, in a state where the apparatus is on a certain surface, the apparatus moves on the certain surface by a vibration of the first grounded portion grounded on the certain surface and/or a vibration of the second grounded portion grounded on the certain surface.

  • Publication number: 20190025879
    Abstract: A holding structure according to an exemplary embodiment includes a rotation axis, a stand body, and a clicker. The stand body is rotatable about the rotation axis. When the stand body is rotated about the rotation axis, an upper end portion of the stand body contacts with the clicker. When the stand body is further rotated from a position at which the stand body and the clicker contacts with each other, the stand body rotates beyond the clicker. Thus, the stand body enters an opened state and holds an orientation of an apparatus. When the upper end portion of the stand body rotates beyond the clicker, the clicker is restored from a deformed state to an initial state, and a clicking sound occurs.
