  • Patent number: 7465866
    Abstract: An assistive music playing apparatus plays a music piece with musically acceptable notes even when the player inputs musically unacceptable notes. The apparatus provides a chord progression pattern, and comprises a note conversion device. A chord progression pattern defines a series of chords, which are presented one after another in time for a music progression. As the player plays music, inputting potentially unacceptable notes, the inputted notes will be converted to musically acceptable notes with reference to the currently presented chord in the chord progression. The note conversion rules are prepared different for a melody note range, a chord note range and a bass note range. Overlap of converted notes are avoided. Depending on the conditions of the player's note input, i.e.

  • Patent number: 7215630
    Abstract: The hinge (13) should preferably be formed to have a higher resistance than ever against the pivoting of the mirror body (12) to effectively prevent the hinge (13) from being damaged. By adopting a suitable one of a variety of production steps as necessary, the hinge (13) can be formed more finely and with a higher precision and thus the micro mirror unit can be produced more easily in a shorter time. To this end, the hinge (13) is formed from a different material, such as SiNx, from the mirror substrate material from which the frame (11) and mirror body (12) are formed.

  • Publication number: 20070022379
    Abstract: Terminals 10 operate under the control of a computer program. An instruction made by a reproduction/stop switch BL1 causes a data inputting portion BL2 to input streamed moving picture data in which a plurality of moving picture data sets respectively representative of moving picture items shot from respectively different viewpoints, are combined. The data inputting portion BL2 then writes the input moving picture data into a reproduction buffer BL3 successively. A rendering processing portion BL4 successively converts the moving picture data stored in the reproduction buffer BL3 to rendering data for rendering on a display unit 18, and then successively writes the converted data into a rendering buffer BL5. A display controlling portion BL7 successively retrieves, from the rendering buffer BL5, only rendering data corresponding to a viewpoint selected by a viewpoint switch BL6, and writes the retrieved data into a display buffer BL8 that controls display on the display unit 18.
