  • Publication number: 20200324196
    Abstract: An input interface system for a game wherein the game progresses in the virtual world based on points that are applied corresponding to the distance of travel of a user in the real world, and event processes that are generated accompanying travel of the user are carried out sequentially, comprising: inputting means for receiving an input of a user operation in respect to a virtual object that appears in an event process, and event execution processing means for progressing the game by defining that an event process has been performed when a user operation is inputted correctly into the inputting means, wherein: the user operation is a path inputting operation wherein a path is drawn on a touch screen, and the event execution processing means perform an event process based on the shape of the path that was drawn in the path inputting operation and on the relative positioning with a virtual object

  • Publication number: 20200219669
    Abstract: There is provided a means capable of suppressing generation of a lithium dendrite at the time of charging and discharging while sufficiently suppressing an amount of gas generated at the time of initial charging of an electric device. When a lithium ion is doped in advance to a negative electrode active material, which is used in an electric device including a positive electrode and a negative electrode, after performing a pre-doping step of doping the lithium ion to a negative electrode active material to be doped to reduce a potential (vs. Li+/Li) of the negative electrode active material to be doped with respect to a lithium metal, a dedoping step of dedoping the lithium ion from the negative electrode active material doped with the lithium ion in the pre-doping step to increase a potential (vs. Li+/Li) of the negative electrode active material with respect to the lithium metal is performed.
