Title
(EN) CONTROL DEVICE MADE OF IMPACT RESISTANT MATERIAL
(FR) CONTROLEUR FABRIQUE DANS UN MATERIAU RESISTANT AUX CHOCS
Abstract
(EN) A manual controller (10) for manipulating images or symbols on a display is made of impact resistant material such as dense foam rubber to resist damage resulting from accidental or intentional impact caused by throwing, dropping, or other insult. Damage resistance entails maintaining the operational integrity of the electronics and the structural integrity of the manual controller.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un contrôleur manuel (10) permettant de manipuler des images ou des symboles sur un écran et conçu dans un matériau résistant aux chocs tel qu'un caoutchouc mousse dense afin de résister à des avaries résultant de chocs accidentels ou intentionnels imputables à une projection, une chute ou autre mauvais traitement. Cette résistance aux avaries permet de maintenir l'intégrité fonctionnelle des dispositifs électroniques et l'intégrité structurale du contrôleur manuel.
