  • Publication number: 20180350122
    Abstract: A display device includes a detection device which detects an indicator and a position of the indicator and specifies whether the indicator is a first indicator or a second indicator; and a processor which sets operation modes of the first indicator and the second indicator. The operation modes include a drawing mode for drawing an image based on the position of the indicator and a mouse mode for performing an operation. When the first indicator is set to the drawing mode and the second indicator is set to the mouse mode, the processor generates an image object based on a position of the first indicator and supplies information indicating a position of the second indicator to an image supply device which is external to the display device.

  • Patent number: 10137697
    Abstract: A liquid supply device includes: a force sensor which outputs an output value corresponding to a force of expansion of a detection target site of a blockage detection tube communicating with a liquid election unit for ejecting a liquid; a pump for sending out a liquid in the blockage detection tube toward the liquid ejection unit; and a control unit which stops an operation of the pump when the output value reaches a threshold.
