  • Publication number: 20190209086
    Abstract: A fixed-sensor finger action detecting glove has a glove body, five covering sheets, five fixing bases, five sensors, and five fixing assemblies. A side of the glove body forms a hand back section and five finger back sections. The covering sheet is mounted on the finger back section and forms a passage. The fixing base is made from a flexible material, is mounted through the passage, and has two limiting walls. The sensor is located in the passage between the two limiting walls, preventing the sensor from deviating. The fixing assembly is mounted between an end of the sensor and an end of the finger back section, detachably connects the sensor and the finger back section, and prevents the sensor from moving back and forth. Thus, the fixed-sensor finger action detecting glove is capable of detecting actions of the fingers precisely.

  • Publication number: 20070290105
    Abstract: A suction disc unit, especially a suction disc unit that can be adsorbed on a smooth surface to support a hung article, it comprises a pressing lid, a suction disc, a link and a pressing rod; wherein the pressing rod at least has a first eccentric protruding portion and a second eccentric protruding portion; when the pressing lid is pulled up to make abutment of the suction disc against the smooth surface by pushing of the pressing rod, the air in the gap between the suction disc and the smooth surface is removed as much as it can; when the pressing rod is pressed down, the pressing lid abuts against the periphery of the suction disc, and the central portion of the suction disc is pulled up tight, the air pressure in the gap is much lower than that of the atmosphere to thereby induce a strong suction force, and thereby to increase the bearing strength of the suction disc unit.

  • Patent number: 6229460
    Abstract: A method of generating a symmetrical reversible variable length code. This symmetrical reversible variable length code is derived from an original variable length code. Compared with the conventional generating method, the novel method is independent of the bit alignment patterns of the codeword of the original variable length code. In addition, the assignment of codewords of the symmetrical reversible variable length code is performed by a selection priority. Therefore, the overall coding efficiency is improved.
