  • Patent number: 10764565
    Abstract: An image taken of a three-dimensional virtual space including a virtual designating object and an object arranged therein is displayed. When the position of the virtual designating object does not coincide with the object, the virtual designating object is arranged in a predetermined orientation. The position of the virtual designating object is determined based on an acquired designated position on a two-dimensional image, which is generated from the three-dimensional virtual space taken by a virtual camera. When the position of the virtual designating object corresponds to the object, the displayed orientation of the virtual designating object is based on the position.

  • Patent number: 10711854
    Abstract: A clutch device includes an input disc, an output disc, and a biasing member configured to press the input disc against the output disc. A rotation load applied to an output shaft separates the input disc from the output disc against biasing force of the biasing member. The input disc and the output disc include opposing surfaces, each of which includes axially disengageable overlapping tooth portions. Recessed and raised portions of each tooth portion are formed continuously in a radial direction and are alternately arranged in a circumferential direction. Each of the curved shapes of the recessed and raised portions is maintained at a respective identical height while a circumferential width thereof continuously expands in a radially outward direction. Also disclosed is a motor unit including the clutch device. The disclosed clutch device reduces, e.g., deformation or damage of a disengageable portion, and therefore, can improve durability.
