Title
(EN) TACTILE-FORCE GENERATING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL PRODUISANT UNE FORCE TACTILE
Abstract
(EN)
In order to reduce the number of parts and to provide sufficient direct tactile sensation transmitted to the finger tip, there is provided a tactile-force generating apparatus (50) for generating in an input section which can be displaced from a determined position of an input unit for inputting information to a game machine main unit, a tactile force for returning the input unit to the predetermined position, the tactile-force generating apparatus (50) comprising a coil spring (60) for generating a tactile force independently from game information in a control pad (48), a permanent magnet (63) and an electromagnet (64) for generating a tactile force corresponding to the game information in the control pad (48).
(FR)
Afin de réduire le nombre de pièces et de procurer une sensation tactile directe suffisante transmise au bout du doigt, on a prévu un appareil (50) de production d'une force tactile destiné à produire, dans une partie d'entrée pouvant être déplacée d'une position déterminée d'une unité d'entrée afin d'entrer des informations dans l'unité principale de la machine de jeux, une force tactile ramenant l'unité d'entrée à la position prédéterminée, l'appareil (50) de production de la force tactile comprenant un ressort à boudin (60) destiné à produire une force tactile indépendamment des informations de jeux dans un bouton de commande (48), un aimant permanent (63) et un électro-aimant (64) destinés à produire une force tactile correspondant aux informations de jeux dans le bouton de commande (48).
