A display panel is attached to a front plate which is disposed at a front surface side of the display panel, with an intermediate member interposed therebetween. A chassis accommodates the display panel in a state in which an opening edge of the chassis comes into contact with the front plate and an inner side surface of the chassis comes into contact with a side surface of the intermediate member. The opening edge of the chassis comes into contact with the front plate to position the display panel and the chassis in the thickness direction of the display panel. The inner side surface of the chassis comes into contact with the side surface of the intermediate member to position the display panel and the chassis in a direction along a display surface of the display panel.

A display device has a data-holding circuit with a capacitance and a display portion with a plurality of pixel electrodes, formed on a first carrier substrate. In the display device, a second carrier substrate disposed opposite the first carrier substrate is placed above the display portion, but the opposing substrate is not present above the area in which the data-holding circuit is disposed. The parasitic capacitance of the data-holding circuit can thereby be reduced. Therefore, the capacitance in the data-holding circuit can be reduced and the area required can be reduced as well. The display data of all the pixels is sent serially to the liquid crystal module without high-speed transfer for each frame time interval, and size can be reduced because the controller IC and interface circuit are formed on the same substrate as the display device substrate.

A translucent liquid crystal display panel (2) includes pixel pairs as display units each formed by a left-eye pixel (4L) and a right-eye pixel (4R) and arranged in a matrix shape. A through hole (4Ld) arranged in a color layer (4Lc) of a color filter has a slit shape whose longitudinal direction is identical to the orientation direction of a cylindrical lens (3a) constituting a lenticular lens (3). Similarly, a through hole (4Rd) arranged in a color layer (4Rc) of a color filter has a slit shape whose longitudinal direction is identical to the orientation direction of the cylindrical lens (3a) constituting the lenticular lens (3). This suppresses the phenomenon that a hue is changed by a field-of-view angle and/or an external light condition on the translucent display panel capable of displaying an image directed to a plurality of viewpoints.

To provide an electronic circuit and the like capable of extending the life greatly even when the transistors constituting the electronic circuit have property fluctuation. The electronic circuit includes switching-target circuits and a switching circuit for switching the switching-target circuits to an operating state from a stop state. The switching-target circuits include the switching-target circuit in an operating state and the switching-target circuit in an initial-to-stop state. Property fluctuation is generated in the transistors forming the switching-target circuits and the switching target due to an electric stress applied to the transistors. The switching circuit switches the switching-target circuit in the initial-to-stop state to an operating state by the transistor of the switching circuit.

A plurality of X electrodes and a plurality of Y electrodes arranged on a support substrate of the tactile sense presentation device are divided into M groups (here, M2, M=4 in FIG. 14). When a presentation content of a tactile sense transits from the N-th frame to the (N+1)-th frame, the tactile sense presentation device, first, sets electrodes belonging to a group 1 to a floating state for a predetermined time and then, connects each electrode to an AC voltage signal source or the ground so as to present a tactile sense in the (N+1)-th frame. The tactile sense presentation device sequentially performs this operation for each group, and, when the operation of a group M ends, a transition between frames ends, and the movement of the target area that is an area in which a texture sense is presented is completed. There is no case where all the electrodes are in the floating state together, and there is no interruption of the texture sense.
