  • Patent number: 11434350
    Abstract: A cellulose resin composition comprising a cellulose derivative (A) and a lubricant (B), wherein the cellulose derivative (A) is a cellulose derivative obtained by substituting at least a part of hydrogen atoms of hydroxyl groups of a cellulose with a short-chain organic group having 2 to 4 carbon atoms and a long-chain organic group having 8 to 30 carbon atoms with specific degrees of substitution; the lubricant (B) is at least one selected from the group consisting of a urea compound (B1) having a urea group (—NH—C(?O)—NH—) and an acyclic aliphatic group having 6 to 33 carbon atoms, an amide compound (B2) having an amide group (—C(?O)—NH—) and an acyclic aliphatic group having 6 to 33 carbon atoms, a fatty acid metal salt (B3), and a silicone-based lubricant (B4); and a content of the lubricant (B) is in a range of 0.1 to 10% by mass. A cellulose resin composition capable of forming a molded body having a high-quality appearance and scratch resistance is provided.

  • Patent number: 10026038
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides an information processing system including a recognition database generated from information on an article, wherein the article is associated with a home electric device, and the information processing system performs a matching process against the recognition database on the basis of article-use detection information provided by the home electric device with which the article is associated, and identifies an article used in the home electric device. With the configuration described above, on the basis of a recognition database generated from information on a purchased article and on the basis of article-use detection information of a home electric device associated with a purchaser of the purchased article, an article used in the home electric device can be identified.

  • Patent number: 9807983
    Abstract: An electronic device including: a living thing state estimator that determines whether or not at least an animal other than a human is present in a space based on information on the space in which the electronic device is disposed, and estimates a state of the animal that is determined to be present; and a control detail determiner that determines a control detail for the electronic device, according to a result of the determination or the estimated state of the animal.
