This international search report has been prepared by this International Searching Authority and is transmitted to the applicant according to Article 18. A copy is being transmitted to the International Bureau.
It is also accompanied by a copy of each prior art document cited in this report.
1. Basis of the report
a. With regard to the language, the international search was carried out on the basis of:
the international application in the language in which it was filed.
a translation of the international application into                                          which is the language of a translation furnished for the purposes of international search (Rules 12.3(a) and 23.1(b)).
This international search report has been established taking into account the rectification of an obvious mistake authorized by or notified to this Authority under Rule 91 (Rule 43.6bis(a)).
With regard to any nucleotide and/or amino acid sequence disclosed in the international application, the international search was carried out on the basis of a sequence listing:
2. Certain claims were found unsearchable
3. Unity of invention is lacking
4. Title of the invention
The text is approved as submitted by the applicant.
The text has been established by this Authority to read as follows:
5. Abstract
The text is approved as submitted by the applicant.
The text has been established, according to Rule 38.2, by this Authority as it appears in Box No. IV. The applicant may, within one month from the date of mailing of this international search report, submit comments to this Authority.

The present invention relates to a pointer (100) for a vehicle characterized by comprising: a blade (110) which extends the rotation axis downwards, points with said rotation axis as a center, extends to the pointer needle (114), and allows light to transmit because of being made of a transparent material; a cover (120) which determines the direction of light transmission by covering a part of said blade and a part of said pointer; a ring member (120) which is supported by said cover, surrounds said blade to prevent transmitted light from being leaked in the lateral direction, and is open at the top-side thereof; and a ring prism (140) which covers the open top-side of said ring member, and together with said pointer allows light transmission so as to expand the indirect lighting area. The present invention is different from the prior art in that the light-emitting position of the pointer is expanded so as to emit light from the pointer position of the prior art to the central point of rotation, and thus, the visibility of the pointer can be guaranteed and the interior design effect of the vehicle can be improved.

6. Drawings
The figure of the drawings to be published with the abstract is Figure No.     1    
as suggested by the applicant.
as selected by this Authority, because the applicant failed to suggest a figure.
as selected by this Authority, because this figure better characterizes the invention.
none of the figures is to be published with the abstract.
