  • Patent number: 8427600
    Abstract: The present invention employs a configuration described as follows, so as to realize a surface light source apparatus which attain a thinness and a further improved luminance uniformity without suffering a deterioration in luminance. Specifically, space maintaining sections (6) are provided on a substrate (4) onto which light sources (2) are mounted, so as to cause an optical sheet (5) and a light emitting surface made up of outputting surfaces (1c) to be away from each other by a given distance. The space marinating sections 6 are provided so as to protrude from respective gaps each of which occurs between adjacent two of light guides (1) which are juxtaposed so as not to overlap each other.

  • Publication number: 20110115734
    Abstract: A touch panel device includes an operation panel, an image display unit, a control generator, a vibrator, and a controller. The operation panel receives an operation input upon contact of a surface of the operation panel by a manipulator. The image display unit, disposed facing the operation panel, displays an image. The control generator generates an image of a control displayable on the image display unit. The vibrator vibrates the operation panel when a control is operated by the manipulator contacting a position on the operation panel corresponding to a position of the image of the control displayed on the image display unit. The controller causes the vibrator to provide a tactile sensation using vibration, corresponding to a shape of the control at a contact position between the manipulator and the control on the operation panel as the manipulator moves on the operation panel to move the control in the image display unit.
