Title: INPUT DEVICE
Abstract:
An input device of the present invention is provided with a switch, a light source, and a light guide body. The switch performs switching between an on-sate and an off-state when pressed. The light source has a first light source, and a second light source disposed at a position different from that of the first light source. The light guide body guides light toward the direction opposite to the pressing direction of the switch, said light having been emitted from the light source. The light guide body has an output section, a first light guide leg section, and a second light guide leg section. The output section outputs, toward the opposite direction, the light emitted from the light source. The first light guide leg section is connected to the output section, and guides, to the output section, first light emitted from the first light source. The second light guide leg section is connected to the output section, and guides, to the output section, second light emitted from the second light source. The output section has a first design wherein light is emitted by reflecting the first light toward the opposite direction side, and a second design wherein light is emitted by reflecting the second light toward the opposite direction side.
