Having Relatively Movable Animal Part Patents (Class 472/99)
  • Patent number: 8454366
    Abstract: An actuated support frame for transmitting motion to a seat with respect to a ground as a function of motion signals associated with video output, comprises a frame. The frame is expandable/retractable along translational degrees of freedom. Support surfaces are provided on the frame. The support surfaces are displaceable with respect to one another by expansion/retraction of the frame so as to be sized to support a seat. Actuators are provided between the frame and the ground. The actuators receive signals and selectively displace the frame with respect to the ground in synchronization with a video output, whereby a seat supported on the frame is displaceable within the frame. A method for installing a seating system of a motion simulator system is also provided.

  • Patent number: 7527560
    Abstract: A rocking horse has two arcuate members or rockers which can held in spaced relation to a supporting surface during a portion of the rocking cycle by stirrups. During this portion, the rockers can move with respect to the stirrups and hence with respect to the supporting surface to take a step forward and/or turn. The horse moves using inertial forces inherent in the rocking motion and/or riding activity.
