  • Publication number: 20180174772
    Abstract: A switch includes a first fixed terminal, a second fixed terminal, and a slider. The slider includes an energizing movable contact portion and two opening/closing movable contact portions which are separated from each other. In closing operation, the two opening/closing movable contact portions come into contact with the first fixed terminal earlier than the energizing movable contact portion.

  • Patent number: 9491430
    Abstract: In a game apparatus, firstly, a depth value in accordance with a state of a virtual three-dimensional space is obtained. Then, an image for left eye and an image for right eye which are obtained by shifting a two-dimensional object that does not exist within the virtual three-dimensional space by a shift amount in accordance with the depth value are synthesized with an image for left eye and an image for right eye which are obtained by capturing the three-dimensional object by a virtual stereo camera, respectively, and the respective synthesized images are rendered, thereby a stereoscopic image is generated. The stereoscopic image obtained as above is outputted to an upper LCD.

  • Patent number: 9142058
    Abstract: A computer-readable storage medium having stored therein an information processing program to be executed by a computer is provided. The information processing program causes the computer to function as: preferential display object placing means for placing a preferential display object in an imaging range of a virtual stereo camera in a virtual three-dimensional space; stereoscopically visible image rendering means for taking the virtual three-dimensional space using the virtual stereo camera, and rendering a stereoscopically visible image of the virtual three-dimensional space; and display control means for causing the display apparatus to display the stereoscopically visible image rendered by the stereoscopically visible image rendering means.

  • Publication number: 20150152957
    Abstract: A switch comprising a circuit board stored in a housing, the circuit board having front and back faces from which at least a pair of fixed contacts are exposed; at least one operating member reciprocatively attached to the housing, the operating member having a movable touch piece configured to slidably contact the fixed contact exposed from one face of the circuit board; and at least one different operating member reciprocatively attached to the housing, the operating member having a movable touch piece configured to slidably contact the fixed contact exposed from the other face of the circuit board.
