Us Patents

  • Electronic Matrix Board Game Apparatus And Method

    view source
  • US Patent:
    43391354, Jul 13, 1982
  • Filed:
    Oct 22, 1980
  • Appl. No.:
    6/199468
  • Inventors:
    Jeffrey D. Breslow - Highland Park IL
    Alex Imatt - Chicago IL
    Christian H. Oberth - Chicago IL
  • Assignee:
    Marvin Glass & Associates - Chicago IL
  • International Classification:
    A63F 906
  • US Classification:
    273237
  • Abstract:
    An electronic computer game and method includes a matrix of 25 LED's (light emitting diodes) and two sets of push button switches positioned on opposite sides of the matrix. Each set of push buttons comprises a group of five push buttons corresponding to the five rows of the matrix and a group of five push buttons corresponding to the five columns of the matrix. Each set of push buttons is arranged so that the ten fingers of a player may be placed on the push buttons and any one of the LED's in the matrix may be rapidly selected by either player by simultaneous actuation of one push button in each of his groups. A game selector switch may be moved to select one of a number of games of action, reaction or strategy each of which is controlled by a microprocessor which stores selection of LED's by each player, sets up random patterns on the matrix which are randomly altered, keeps track of each player's score and provides audible and visual signals informing the players of the progress of the game, etc.
  • Microcomputer Controlled Reaction Game

  • US Patent:
    43402232, Jul 20, 1982
  • Filed:
    Jan 30, 1981
  • Appl. No.:
    6/229921
  • Inventors:
    Wayne A. Kuna - Oak Park IL
    Christian H. Oberth - Chicago IL
  • Assignee:
    Marvin Glass & Associates - Chicago IL
  • International Classification:
    A63B 7104
  • US Classification:
    273 1GC
  • Abstract:
    A microcomputer controlled game apparatus utilizes a microcomputer for controlling the play of one or more games a participant may play against the machine or against another participant. The device includes a housing having a playing surface with a plurality of light emitting elements arranged across the surface including one or more elements associated with each player. The light emitting elements are conveniently covered by a translucent screen bearing insect or other indicia which is illuminated when the underlying light emitting element is actuated. The light emitting elements are sequentially actuated in an apparently random path by the microcomputer located within the housing. When a player's light emitting element is illuminated, the player has a predetermined time to actuate a manually actuable switch. The microcomputer records the player's success in actuating the switch within the predetermined time of illumination of the selected light emitting element and then controls the rate of sequential actuation of the light emitting element in response to the player's success or lack of success.
  • Viewing Device For Generating A Three-Dimensional Image

  • US Patent:
    43987230, Aug 16, 1983
  • Filed:
    Jan 29, 1981
  • Appl. No.:
    6/229659
  • Inventors:
    Erick E. Erickson - Chicago IL
    Christian H. Oberth - Chicago IL
    Jeffrey D. Breslow - Highland Park IL
    Douglas P. Montague - Chicago IL
  • Assignee:
    Marvin Glass & Associates - Chicago IL
  • International Classification:
    A63F 902
  • US Classification:
    273313
  • Abstract:
    A game apparatus includes a viewing device which incorporates a viewing console that receives replaceable visual cartridges and a microcomputer for generating game functions. The visual cartridges are automatically opened upon insertion into the viewing console to reveal a three-dimensional scene. When the visual cartridge is opened, its cover swings into alignment with a plurality of light emitting elements. These elements are operative to selectively illuminate various regions of the cover and to project indicia located on the illuminated region onto the scene provided by the viewing cartridge. Each viewing device can be provided with a plurality of different cartridges with covers bearing different symbols to produce a variety of visual effects useful in implementing game devices, particularly microcomputer controlled game devices, and visual displays such as advertising displays and the like.
