  • Patent number: 8884908
    Abstract: An electronic apparatus 10 includes a touch pad 11 for accepting a touch operation of a user, a support section 12 for supporting the touch pad 11, and a vibrating section 13 attached to the touch pad 11 for flexurally deforming the touch pad 11. As flexural vibration of the touch pad 11 is transmitted to the support section 12, the support section 12 deforms to vibrate in displacement vibration. An amplitude of the displacement vibration of the support section 12 is greater than an amplitude of the flexural vibration of the touch pad 11.

  • Publication number: 20140320432
    Abstract: A traffic information presentation system according to an embodiment is a system for presenting a tactile sensation to a user based on traffic information, including: a touch section; a tactile presentation section; an input section for receiving traffic information; and a control section for controlling the tactile presentation section based on the traffic information. The control section monitors a status of touch with respect to the touch section, and accepts an instruction from the user that corresponds to the touch input operation when detecting that an amount of change in touched position equals to or exceeds a certain amount. When detecting that the amount of change in touched position is less than the certain amount and that the touch duration equals to or exceeds a certain length, the control section causes the tactile presentation section to present a tactile sensation based on the traffic information.

  • Publication number: 20140148483
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to provide a method for predicting the effectiveness of an angiogenesis inhibitor in a subject suffering from a tumor. Provided is a method comprising a step of testing for the presence or absence of an a mutation or loss of expression of B-Raf and PTEN in a sample of tumor tissue from the subject. By using the presence or absence of or a mutation or loss of expression of B-Raf and PTEN as an indicator, this method enables the antitumor effectiveness of the angiogenesis inhibitor to be predicted without administering the angiogenesis inhibitor to the subject.
