A storage device (1) includes, in a box (2) having an open front, a rotation mechanism section (30) that rotatably holds a storage body (10) that stores an object and is rotatable about a shaft (44) extending along an up-down direction. The rotation mechanism section includes: a stationary rail (31) affixed to a top surface (3a) of the box and including a guide groove (32) open downward and forward and extending in a front-back direction and a guide body (35) on a holding section (34) protruding downward from a groove bottom surface of the guide groove; and a movable rail (40) movable in the front-back direction along the guide groove in the stationary rail, coupled to the storage body via the shaft, and including: left and right sidewalls (46, 47), a bottom wall (43), and a front end wall (45) that define a receiving groove (41) for receiving the guide body; and a top wall (48) that forms a slit opening (2) for receiving the holding section.


A camera system includes a remote camera, a beacon signal transmission apparatus that is disposed at a location corresponding to a preset point and transmits a beacon signal, and an electronic device that receives the beacon signal. One or both of the remote camera and the electronic device include a storage unit, a distance determination section, and a control command generation section. The storage unit stores information regarding the preset point. The distance determination section estimates a distance between the tag device and the beacon signal transmission apparatus, based on a reception intensity of the beacon signal. When the distance estimated by the distance determination section is less than a predetermined value, the control command generation section generates a control command that causes the remote camera to face the preset point, based on information stored in the storage unit.

A display device includes plurality of light-emitting elements aligned on a TFT substrate in a formation of a matrix. The plurality of light-emitting elements each have a flat surface portion and including a light-emitting layer, an anode, and a cathode, an insulating layer formed on the TFT substrate and under the light emitting element, and a tilted metal surface provided on a peripheral area surrounding the flat surface portion of the light-emitting element and having a tilt angle with respect to the flat surface portion of the light-emitting element. The tilted metal surface is provided on a surface of a slope of a bank that is provided on the insulation layer, and a width of a cross-section of the bank becomes smaller as the cross section comes farther away from a surface of the TFT substrate. A counter substrate is placed on the TFT substrate.

A switching power supply device of the present disclosure includes a device connection state detection circuit that detects a connection state in a load device connection terminal, in a power supply system having the load device connection terminal. The device connection state detection circuit includes a transformer, a switching element, a pulse generator, and a waveform detection circuit. The waveform detection circuit detects a voltage or a current generated at a connecting point between a primary winding wire of the transformer and the switching element in response to operation of a pulse signal. The waveform detection circuit compares the voltage or the current with a predetermined reference value, and outputs an output signal in response to a comparison result to an OFF terminal.
