  • Patent number: 10842013
    Abstract: A small and inexpensive plasma actuator is capable of accelerating induced flow and increasing the effect of controlling flow. A plurality of electrode pairs are disposed on a dielectric layer upstream to downstream along a predetermined direction. Each electrode pair includes an upstream electrode disposed on one surface of the dielectric layer and a downstream electrode disposed on another surface of the dielectric layer to sandwich the dielectric layer between the upstream electrode. A lowest electrode is on the one surface of the dielectric layer displaced downstream from the downstream electrode in an the most downstream electrode pair to have the same potential as the downstream electrode. A voltage application device is configured to apply voltage including AC voltage or repeated pulse voltage to each electrode pair such that the potential of the applied voltage inverts at adjacent electrode pairs.

  • Patent number: 10758820
    Abstract: Based on a user operation on an operation unit, an operation target is controlled in a virtual space, and it is determined whether or not the operation target is in a predetermined situation in the virtual space. Then, a vibration signal for vibrating a vibration unit is generated in accordance with the state of the operation target in the virtual space, and the vibration signal is generated by associating a plurality of types of vibrations with a plurality of states of the operation target. When it is determined that the operation target is in the predetermined situation, the vibration signal is generated so that regarding a first type of vibration among the plurality of types of vibrations, the vibration is weaker than in a case where it is not determined that the operation target is in the predetermined situation, or the vibration disappears.
