  • Patent number: 10921598
    Abstract: In the first embodiment and the second embodiment, the case where an image is projected on the retina 52 of one of the eyes 50 has been described, but an image may be projected on the retinas 52 of both eyes 50. In addition, the scan mirror 14 has been described as an example of a scan unit, but the scan unit may be any element as long as it can scan a light beam. For example, other components such as potassium tantalate niobate (KTN) crystal that is an electro-optic material may be used as the scan unit. The case where the light beam is a laser beam has been described as an example, but the light beam may be light other than the laser beam.

  • Patent number: 10922910
    Abstract: A key information sharing system includes a delivery device that delivers key information as first information for a control device equipped in an object and a user terminal that receives the first information delivered from the delivery device. The delivery device adds second information that allows the first information to be transferred between the user terminal and a third-party terminal without the delivery device, to the first information to be delivered to the user terminal. The user terminal transmits the first information to the third-party terminal in response to an input operation by a user, when the user terminal receives the first information to which the second information has been added.
