  • Publication number: 20200398155
    Abstract: An example input apparatus includes an elastic member, a base portion and a strain gauge. The elastic member includes a first end portion and a second end portion, and at least a part of the elastic member is elastically deformable. The base portion holds the opposite end portions of the elastic member so that a ring is formed by the base portion and the elastic member. The strain gauge is provided on the base portion and detects a strain generated on the base portion due to deformation of the elastic member in response to an input from the user. Note that instead of the configuration where a ring is formed by the base portion and the elastic member, the input apparatus may be configured so that two elastic members are held by the base portion.

  • Patent number: 10603582
    Abstract: A non-limiting example game apparatus includes a main body apparatus that functions as a vibration control apparatus and a first controller and a second controller attachable to or detachable from the main body apparatus. For example, the game apparatus can be used in one of a first mode that two controllers are attached to the main body apparatus, a second mode that the two controllers are individually used in a separated state from the main body apparatus, a third mode that the two controllers are used in a state where the two controllers are detached from the main body apparatus and connected integrally to each other, and a fourth mode that a third controller that is different from the two controllers is used. For example, the same type of vibration motor is used for each controller, and a CPU incorporated in the main body apparatus controls a vibration waveform according to the usage mode of the game apparatus.
