  • Publication number: 20150236989
    Abstract: The presence display system of the present invention displays presences and distances between buddies. The mobile station 11 performs poling to the user data section 26 at predetermined time intervals, transmits location information of the mobile station 11 to the presence server 27, receives buddies state information and information indicating the proximity between the user and the buddies, and displays the presence of the buddies by means of an icon with a size that corresponds with the proximity. The buddy list server 28 calculates the distance between the user and the buddies from the location information of the mobile station 11 and the location information of the requested buddies in accordance with the poling by the mobile station 11, determines the proximity by comparing the distance with a threshold value that is set by the user, and transmits the proximity to the mobile station 11.

  • Patent number: 8915223
    Abstract: Provided is a valve timing control apparatus that allows relaxation of manufacturing precision of a driving-side rotary member and a driven-side rotary member and that achieves space saving at the same time. An urging member includes at least one trough-folded portion and at least one crest-folded portion, one end side contact portion formed between one terminal end of the urging member and the trough-folded portion and coming into contact with a sealing element, and other end side contact portion formed between the other terminal end of the urging member and the crest-folded portion and coming into contact with a partitioning portion. In association with urging of the urging member, the distance between the one end side contact portion and the other end side contact portion along the urging direction is decreased and the angles of the trough-folded portion and the crest-folded portion are decreased.

  • Patent number: 6854699
    Abstract: A cup holder device includes an attachment base, a holder main member, and a holder arm formed of first to third arms. The first arm has one end part rotatably supported to the holder main member, and the other end part with a first placement portion where the container bottom can be placed. The second arm has one end part rotatably supported to the other end part of the first arm through a first link portion, and a second placement portion at the one end part. In an unfolded state, the second placement portion continues from the first placement portion to support the container bottom. The third arm includes one end part rotatably supported to the other end part of the second arm, and the other end part rotatably supported to the holder main member through a second link portion. Thus, the cup holder device can be made compact and stably hold a container.
