  • Publication number: 20210029325
    Abstract: The present technique relates to a multi-direction communication apparatus, a multi-direction communication method, and a program capable of reducing an uncomfortable feeling to be provided to a user feeling that spaces are continuous in a multi-direction communication system. A reception section receives real space information including information representing a situation of a real space for a user B. A virtual data generation section generates, on the basis of the received real space information, virtual space information including information representing a situation of a virtual space. A control section controls display, on an information processing apparatus of a user A, of the virtual space represented by the generated virtual space information instead of the real space represented by the real space information. The present technique can be applied to a multi-direction communication system.

  • Publication number: 20210016634
    Abstract: An air discharge device includes a duct that defines a flow passage through which a working air flow to be discharged passes, and a hole forming member defining an air discharge hole as an outlet of the working air flow. The hole forming member has a vortex generation structure configured to generate an auxiliary vortex having a vortex characteristic including a vortex rotation direction and a vortex axis direction. The vortex characteristic of the auxiliary vortex is different from that of a lateral vortex generated by the working air flow at a downstream side of the air discharge hole. The vortex generation structure is configured in the hole forming member so that the auxiliary vortex collides with the lateral vortex in a state where at least one of the vortex rotation direction and the vortex axial direction of the vortex characteristic is different from that of the lateral vortex.

  • Patent number: 10852308
    Abstract: The present invention addresses the problem of developing an analytical method which makes it possible to diagnose early or mild renal disorders. The method is based on calculating a disease-state index value for renal disorders on the basis of the quantities of D-form and/or L-form amino acids, from feces or intestinal content. By comparing the disease-state index value with a threshold value determined from the disease-state index values of a renal failure patient group and a healthy subject group, it is possible to diagnose a mild renal disorder patient group.
