Abrégé anglais



An interactive pin array device comprising a plurality of elongated pins held
in a frame and
forming a set. The frame is adapted to hold the plurality of pins in a
parallel position to one
another in a series of columns and rows, such that the distal ends of the
plurality of pins
together form a flat virtual plane. Each pin of the plurality of pins includes
an elongated
housing member defining a linear axis therethrough, and a pin member adapted
to slide
linearly in either direction along the axis. Each of the housing member
includes an upper
electromagnet, and a lower electromagnet separated from the upper
electromagnet.

CLAIMS

1.) An interactive pin array device comprising a plurality of elongated
pins held in a frame and forming a set; said frame adapted to hold said
plurality of pins in a parallel position to one another in a series of
columns and rows, such that the distal ends of said plurality of pins
together form a flat virtual plane; each pin of said plurality of pins
includes an elongated housing member defining a linear axis
therethrough, and a pin member adapted to slide linearly in either
direction along said axis; each said housing member includes an
upper electromagnet and a lower electromagnet separated from said
upper electromagnet, each said electromagnet being adapted to move
its respective pin member linearly in either direction; each said pin
member includes at least one linear potentiometer, and an electronic
transmitter attached to an opposite end to said distal end, such that
when each of said pin members are moved linearly each respective
linear potentiometer sends a signal to its respective transmitter which
in turn sends an electronic signal describing its movement within its
respective housing member; a plurality of electronic wires respectively
connected to each transmitter, such that electronic signals can be
relayed to and from each respective pin; an analog-digital converter
connected to said plurality of electronic wires and adapted to convert
the analog electronic signals relayed by said transmitters into digital
format to be transmitted, processed, stored, and then converted back
into analog form for return transmittal to said set of pins; and a
microprocessor device connected to said converter and adapted to
retrieve said electronic signals from said converter, store them, and re-
transmit them back to said converter when desired, such that a user
can displace said pin members from said virtual plane in any pattern,
have electronic signals sent, processed, stored, and returned to the
same set of pins, or another separate set of pins, at a later time to


11

thereby displace said pins to the same positions as said original
pattern chosen by said user.
2.) The interactive pin array device of claim 1, wherein each said
housing member of each pin comprises an upper frame and a lower
frame; wherein said upper frame houses said upper electromagnet.
3.) The interactive pin array device of claim 1, wherein said upper
frame houses said upper electromagnet; and further includes an upper
spring, a lower spring, a shield member, and a magnet such that said
springs create an opposite force to resulting electromagnetic forces on
said pin member and thereby results in smoother movements of said
pin member.
4.) The interactive pin array device of claim 1, wherein said linear
potentiometer, and said electronic transmitter, and wherein said linear
potentiometer comprises an outer part situated on a side of said
opposite end of said pin member, and an inner part situated on an end
surface of said opposite end of said pin member.
5.) The interactive pin array device of claim 1, wherein said
electronic signal is formed as a Pulse Width Modulation signal, and
wherein the displacement of each said pin members is proportional to
the strength of said Pulse Width Modulation signal received by said
electromagnets.
6.) An interactive pin array device comprising a first pin set including a
plurality of elongated pins held in a frame, said frame adapted to hold
said plurality of pins in a parallel position to one another in a series of
columns and rows, such that the distal ends of said plurality of pins


12

together form a flat virtual plane; each pin of said plurality of pins
includes an elongated housing member defining a linear axis
therethrough, and a pin member adapted to slide linearly in either
direction along said axis; each said housing member includes an
upper electromagnet, and a lower electromagnet separated from said
upper electromagnet, each said electromagnet being adapted to move
its respective pin member linearly in either direction; each said pin
member includes at least one linear potentiometer, and an electronic
transmitter attached to an opposite end to said distal end, such that
when each of said pin members are moved linearly each respective
linear potentiometer sends a signal to its respective transmitter which
in turn sends an electronic signal describing its movement within its
respective housing member; a plurality of electronic wires respectively
connected to each transmitter, such that electronic signals can be
relayed to and from each respective pin; an analog-digital converter
connected to said plurality of electronic wires and adapted to convert
the analog electronic signals relayed by said transmitters into digital
form to be transmitted, processed, stored, and then converted back
into analog form for return transmittal to said set of pins; and a
microprocessor device connected to said converter and adapted to
retrieve said electronic signals from said converter, store them, and
transmit them to a second microprocessor; said second
microprocessor being connected to a second analog-digital converter
adapted to convert said digital signal to an analog signal to be sent to
a second pin set; said second pin set being formed identically to said
first pin set, such that a user can displace said pin members from said
virtual plane of said first pin set in any pattern, have electronic signals
sent, processed, stored, and sent to said second pin set to thereby
displace said its respective set of pins to the same positions as said
original pattern of said first set of pins chosen by said user.

7.) The interactive pin array device of claim 6, wherein each said
housing member of each pin comprises an upper frame and a lower
frame; wherein said upper frame houses said upper electromagnet.
8.) The interactive pin array device of claim 6, wherein said upper
frame houses said upper electromagnet; and further includes an upper
spring, a lower spring, a shield member, and a magnet such that said
springs create an opposite force to resulting electromagnetic forces on
said pin member and thereby results in smoother movements of said
pin member.
9.) The interactive pin array device of claim 6, wherein said linear
potentiometer, and said electronic transmitter, and wherein said linear
potentiometer comprises an outer part situated on a side of said
opposite end of said pin member, and an inner part situated on an end
surface of said opposite end of said pin member.
10.) The interactive pin array device of claim 6, wherein said electronic
signal is formed as a Pulse Width Modulation signal, and wherein the
displacement of each said pin members is proportional to the strength
of said Pulse Width Modulation signal received by said
electromagnets.
11.) The interactive pin array device of claim 6, wherein said first
microprocessor is connected to said second microprocessor via a
wireless connection.
12.) The interactive pin array device of claim 11, wherein said wireless
connection makes use of the Internet.
