  • Patent number: 10317631
    Abstract: [Object] To have excellent maintenance properties and restrain parallel light (collimated light) from being directly emitted to the outside of an optical connector during non-optical coupling. [Solution] An optical communication connector according to the present disclosure includes: a collimating lens configured to collimate light from an optical transmission path; and a diffusion section arranged on a leading end side with respect to the collimating lens, and configured to diffuse the light from the optical transmission path output from the collimating lens. According to this configuration, in the optical communication in which insertion and removal are frequently performed, it is possible to achieve their safety during non-fitting at the same time while having an advantage because of a collimating signal since light from an optical transmission path is diffused.

  • Publication number: 20190121515
    Abstract: An information processing device that mediates interactions between information and a user in a VR space is provided. When the user who is looking at a ground-level view in the VR space looks up while remaining in a seated posture, a target mark appears in the sky of the VR space. In this state, if the user further performs a “jump action” of making short up-and-down motions of the torso, the VR space switches to a view from the sky. If the user repeats the action of looking up at the sky and performing the jump action while the target mark is visible, it is possible to move the VR space even higher in the sky.

  • Publication number: 20190075269
    Abstract: Provided is a display device configured to display a video, and an information processing terminal device configured to control transmission of a video to the display device. When a video-reproducing device detects a jumping movement of a user, the video-reproducing device determines that an instruction is given to move a viewpoint position to a place on which a target mark is displayed, and transmits a request for stopping transmission to a video-providing device as a transmission source of a currently displayed video, and transmits a request for starting transmission to a video-providing device as a moving destination. When transmission of a video from the video-providing device as the moving destination is started, the movement in viewpoint is achieved, and a video captured from a new viewpoint position is allowed to be viewed on the video-reproducing device.
