  • Publication number: 20180373082
    Abstract: An optical device includes a first substrate which is light-transmissive, a second substrate which is light-transmissive and opposes the first substrate, a light distribution layer which is interposed between the first substrate and the second substrate and distributes incident light, and an optical element which is disposed on one of a surface of the second substrate on a side opposite to a side facing the first substrate and a surface of the first substrate on a side opposite to a side facing the second substrate. The light distribution layer includes an optical medium containing a birefringent material and an uneven structure. The optical element has an optical property of reducing an amount of at least one of first polarized light and second polarized light that differ in a polarization direction.

  • Publication number: 20180328557
    Abstract: An optical device includes a first substrate having light transmission properties, a second substrate opposing the first substrate and having light transmission properties, and an optical control layer disposed between the first substrate and the second substrate and including a first light-transmitting portion that includes an optical medium and an uneven structure and a second light-transmitting portion that includes only the optical medium out of the optical medium and the uneven structure. The optical medium and the uneven structure have different refractive indices. In a plan view, the first light-transmitting portion and the second light-transmitting portion are repeatedly arranged in one direction, and the area of repetition of at least one of the first light-transmitting portion and the second light-transmitting portion varies in the one direction.

  • Publication number: 20180264362
    Abstract: A game system includes: a virtual camera control unit configured to control a virtual camera configured to take an image of a three-dimensional virtual game space; a game image generating unit configured to generate a game image based on the taken image; a sound reproducing unit configured to reproduce sound data in accordance with a situation of a game; and a first operation acquiring unit configured to acquire a physical and continuous displacement amount of a first operating portion operated by a user. In accordance with a continuous change in the displacement amount of the first operating portion, the virtual camera control unit continuously changes a zoom ratio of the virtual camera, and the sound reproducing unit continuously changes a method of reproducing the sound data.

  • Publication number: 20170151501
    Abstract: A distance measuring unit 331 measures a distance of a path of sound based on the number of map units between the map unit where a sound source is located and the map unit where a player character is located. An effect unit 332 attenuates the volume of a game sound based on the distance calculated by the distance measuring unit 331. Thereby, it is possible to attenuate the volume level of the sound effect depending on the distance where the sound is transmitted, even if the sound comes around an object obstructing sound.

  • Patent number: 8202756
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a method of manufacturing an organic EL device includes providing a structure including a substrate and an electrode positioned above the substrate, and forming an organic layer including a mixture of first and second organic materials above the electrode. The first organic material has a first sublimation point. The second organic material has a second sublimation point higher than the first sublimation point. The formation of the organic layer includes heating an evaporation material including a mixture of the first and second organic materials to an evaporation temperature so as to sublimate the first and second organic materials, and delivering the sublimed first and second organic materials toward the electrode to deposit a mixture including the first and second organic materials above the electrode. The evaporation temperature is, for example, a temperature higher than the second sublimation temperature by 50° C. or more.
