    Abstract: In a lightable fan structure for dissipating heat, a circuit board is arranged in a fan body, and the circuit board is sequentially provided with a first light-guiding frame and a second light-guiding frame, and the circuit board is provide with a plurality of side-light lighting elements. Every two side-light lighting elements is reversely arranged and spaced on a rim of the circuit board. A bottom of the first light-guiding frame is annually provided with a lighting reflection layer, and the side-light lighting elements are arranged below the lighting reflection layer. The lighting reflection layer reflects light sources of the side-light lighting elements to pass through an edge and a top of the first light-guiding frame and the second light-guiding frame, thereby uniformly scattering and forming a circular light source.

  • Patent number: 9658379
    Abstract: A fiber optic display device reciprocates fiber optics to create decorative optical fiber light displays. The device can include one or more optical fibers contained at one end by a holding member and left suspended freely at the other end. The holding member and optical fibers are functionally attached about a pivot point axis that is across the longitudinal axis of the fibers and the holding member, to a housing. A light source can be affixed to either the holding member or the housing, opposite the freely suspended optical fiber ends, and is oriented to expose and illuminate the optical fibers. A drive means causes the holding member and optical fibers to reciprocate back and forth about the pivot point axis of the holding member.

  • Patent number: 9574762
    Abstract: Devices that include light assemblies for providing visual feedback to users that operate the electronic devices. In some instances, the devices comprise voice-controlled devices and, therefore, include one or more microphones for receiving audible commands from the users. After receiving a command, for instance, one such voice-controlled device may cause a corresponding light assembly of the device to illuminate in some predefined manner. This illumination may indicate to the user that device has received the command. In other instances, the devices may illuminate the lighting assembly for an array of other purposes. For instance, one such device may illuminate the corresponding light assembly when powering on or off, playing music, outputting information to a user (e.g., via a speaker or display), or the like.
