  • Patent number: 10310333
    Abstract: A double-sided pressure-sensitive adhesive-layer-attached polarizing film has a polarizing film nearest to a viewer-side of an image display device among at least one polarizing film, a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer A located on the viewer-side, and a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer B on a side of the polarizing film that is opposite to the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer A. The pressure-sensitive adhesive layers A and B are equipped with separators SA and SB, respectively. The polarizing film is a single-side protected polarizing film having a polarizer of 15 ?m or less thickness and having a transparent protective film on only a single side of the polarizer. The pressure-sensitive adhesive layer B is located on the polarizer side of the single-side protected polarizing film. The pressure-sensitive adhesive layer A has a thickness of 25 ?m or more; and the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer B has a thickness of 25 ?m or less.

  • Patent number: 9979946
    Abstract: Provided are an I/O device, an I/O program, and an I/O method that enable visual recognition with such a sense of distance as if a target object that is a real image were in contact with a stereoscopic image that is a virtual image. The I/O device according to the present invention includes: a display device that can generate a stereoscopic image; and a depth level sensor that measures a distance to a target object. A stereoscopic region of the stereoscopic image generated by the display device and a depth level detection region of the depth level sensor overlap with each other to thereby have a common region therebetween. As a result, the visual recognition with such a sense of distance as if the target object that is a real image were in contact with the stereoscopic image that is a virtual image is possible.
