Abstract: In a game system, a first game screen obtained by a first virtual camera taking an operation target object in a first direction is displayed on a first display section, and a second game screen obtained by a second virtual camera taking the operation target object in a second direction substantially opposite to the first direction is displayed on a second display section different from the first display section. The operation target object is controlled to move in a predetermined direction in a virtual space in accordance with an input direction detected based on input to an operation section. At a predetermined timing based on game processing, a direction in which the first virtual camera is set as seen from the operation target object and a direction in which the second virtual camera is set as seen from the operation target object are switched therebetween. In a game system, a first game screen obtained by a first virtual camera taking an operation target object in a first direction is displayed on a first display section, and a second game screen obtained by a second virtual camera taking the operation target object in a second ...more ...less

Abstract: A toy apparatus has a primary structure with components movably coupled together, and a target movably coupled to the primary structure. Repeated impacts on the target move the target from an initial position to a critical position. When the target reaches the critical position, the primary structure is released from a first state to a second state in which the components of the primary structure are at least partially displaced from each other.

Abstract: A liquid filter with a composite medium that has a nanoweb adjacent to and optionally bonded to a microporous membrane. The membrane is characterized by an LRV value of 3.7 at a rated particle size, and the nanoweb has a fractional filtration efficiency of greater than 0.1 at the rated particle size of the membrane. The nanoweb also has a thickness efficiency ratio of greater than 0.0002 at that efficiency.

Abstract: A filter well suited for paint arrestor usage having a monolithic high loft manmade fiber body with a convoluted flow contact surface. The filter is preferably formed by a convoluter as in one with a roller set and blade cutter to form mirror image fiber filter sheets from a received fiber batt. Provided is a well mixed proper fiber blend, such as one having a set of fibers made of a majority of course fibers joined by way of thermal bonding fibers which facilitate, during convoluting, formation of a crisp cut and high integrity three dimensional surface, as in one of rows of peaks separated by valleys. The projection/recess arrangement over the flow contact surface as well as the thickness and relative projection-to-base dimensions are arranged to provide a high paint holding capacity without too fast a load up of, for example, paint particles and while avoiding too great of a pressure drop within that load up time.
