Description

200948680 VI. Description of the Invention: [Technical Field of the Invention] The present invention relates generally to a package, and more particularly to an electric toothbrush package that visually characterizes the function of a toothbrush. 5 [Prior Art] Consumers often make judgments about the favorable conditions of the product using various sensory abilities including visual, auditory and tactile. However, at a point of purchase, for example, at a retail location, the product may not be completely resolved by the consumer, as the product may be coated, contained or otherwise packaged in a package to avoid loss. Or damaged. Moreover, it is often difficult for consumers to understand and associate with the movement of an electric toothbrush head to clean the teeth. Therefore, there is a need to characterize the function of an electric toothbrush in a way that the product packaging and methods are easy for the consumer to perceive. SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The present invention relates to a package for use in an electric product. On one side, a package of electric toothbrush visually characterizes the function of a toothbrush. In accordance with one aspect of the present invention, an electric toothbrush package can take the form of a combination of vibrational characterization of an oral care implement. In addition, the combination can be combined with a method for characterizing the function of an oral health care appliance. 20 In accordance with one aspect of the present invention, an article for use in an oral care implement comprises a base member having an index associated therewith. The indicator is constructed to reflect a vibration input suitable for the appliance, and a visual effect is produced by the indicator. In a configuration 5, the indicator comprises a first 7L piece with a standard 3 200948680 and a second element having a sign to cause the relative motion of the pair to cause the effect of the pair of viewers. In an exemplary configuration, relative motion is generated to reflect a vibration input generated by an oral health appliance. ... another aspect of the present invention - a needle-in-the-counter oral health care appliance combination 'includes an electric oral health care implement, - a vibration characterization element. When the -th-vibration characterizing element 10 15 moves the characterizing element to move, the oral health care device characterizing group can be constructed to produce a visual representation effect. One of these effects, the Moire effect, can be produced by this combination of characterizations. The other aspect is directed to the vibrational characterization of an oral health care device, and a, 〇 a has a user input of an electric toothbrush, a product package, a visual characterization insert with visual elements, and a visual representation. Moreover, when one of the visual characterization insert and the visual characterization reference element results in a visual effect relative to the other motion, one portion of the visual characterization insert can visually cover one of the visual characterization reference elements. Another aspect of the present invention is directed to a method for characterizing a vibration for oral health care. - A packaging system is created to accommodate an electric oral health appliance having a user. A first characterization element and a second characterization element are operatively coupled to the package and appliance. The method includes vibrating the oral care implement via user input and generating a relative motion between the first characterization element and the second characterization element to produce a visual effect. 20 200948680 Other aspects of the present invention may include generating a plurality of visual effects by moving a plurality of vibration characterizing elements relative to other vibration characterizing elements to produce various visual effects, including simultaneously producing visual effects, such as Mo The effect is combined with a visual representation of 5 in the form of a toothbrush. According to this, the present invention is directed to providing a product package that can effectively convey the characteristics, components, and/or potential usage of a product to a consumer at a point of sale. As a result, consumers often feel more comfortable when purchasing a product, as they are already visible in a characterization environment. In accordance with the principles of the present invention, the conveyance of product characteristics and the characterization of the method of use of the product can utilize product packaging. Other features and advantages of the present invention will be apparent from the description of the appended claims. [Embodiment] Several structures of a 15-package combination are disclosed in Figures 1 to 26, which may include oral care elements (e.g., toothbrushes, tongue cleaners, and other related equipment) for purchase purposes. It is typically displayed in the product packaging. In the exact example structure shown in Figure 1, the package combination is used to prepare a dental care appliance such as an electric toothbrush. As described in more detail below, the 'packaging combination' utilizes the relative motion of the indicators to produce unique visual characteristics. It will be appreciated that the principles of the present invention can also be applied to other different forms of products where the product (b) produces a visual effect. Figure 2 and Figure 34 show the concept of superimposing the same design or different designs 5 200948680 10 15 to produce a different pattern from its separate component design. The appearance of a new line set that traverses the point at a small angle through the original line can be established so that the eye can perceive the distortion or flicker of the indicator, thereby printing or displaying a high contrast image. In the example of Fig. 2, a first line group 1 is superimposed on a second line group 2. Similarly in Fig. 3, a first line group 3 is superimposed on a second line group 4. It can be seen that the individual line groups of Figures 2 and 3 are in different forms. As can be seen from Figures 2 and 3, the overlap of these individual line sets creates a visual perception of the human eye. This visual perception or effect is usually referred to as a Moire effect5. Therefore, the Moire effect 5 established by each line group 1, 2, 3, 4 can be referred to as a Moire pattern 6. Moiré effect 5 occurs when two or more line groups, points, or related structures other than relative sizes, angles, intervals, and the like. In FIG. 2, the first line group 1 can be described as a parallel vertical line, and the second line group 2 can be described as a wavy line. The first line group 1 is superimposed on the second wave line group 2. This contrast of curvature establishes a visual Moire effect 5 as described. When the two curve groups 3, 4 are superimposed on each other, the Moire effect 5 is also established in Fig. 3. Although the two-line group 3, 4玎 in Fig. 3 is generally described as a curve 'line group 3, 4 has different specific properties, including the position and the magnitude of the curvature. When these two line groups 3, 4 are superimposed on each other, this superimposed change is characterized by the eyes of the human being, so that the Moire effect 5 which is apparent when viewed in view is established. It can be understood that the Moir effect 5 is established when the view group 2 and the individual line groups 1, 2, 3, and 4 which are known in Fig. 3 are established. $ y understands that other moiré effects using other indicators in accordance with the present invention are feasible, including the additional graphics described in more detail below. 25 200948680 Thus when a viewer watches a window and views other windows The background of the screen or an exact feature, the description of the Moire effect 5 can be naturally produced in the exact example. The Moire effect 5 can also be intentionally derived using photographic, graphical and/or electronic means of replication well known in the art. Characterization and display are possible by causing and operating the Moire effect 5 and utilizing other image principles and techniques to improve product packaging. Thus, a preferred method for the characterization of the product (e.g., an oral health device) and a preferred environment for the characterization of the oral health device are also possible. 1 and 4 through 6 generally disclose an exemplary construction of a package assembly of the present invention, generally designated by the reference numeral 10. In a precise configuration, the package assembly 10 can also be referred to as an oral health care device vibration characterization combination 10.

It can be used as follows: a user turns into the 32 series as "on" (four) position or "off ^1 substation animal 12 to already Know the fly off" (Of; Q position. Can be used to change the device state between "open" and 32-packable compressible button, open μ" position to change other actuating elements. Pieces, knobs and numerous ones as shown in Figures 1 and 4 to Figure 2 contain a toothbrush. Steps show that the package 14 is produced in a housing to accommodate the product. Work: in various forms and usually with 34 and a cover 36. A base member is included in the exemplary structure as a flat member in the form of a toothbrush/soil member 34, and generally supports the toothbrush 12 in a plurality of shapes and sizes m. The base member 4 can be formed to include the object. η In the exact structure, the base material can be wrapped around the 14 cut-off to allow for tighter product packaging. 4 cover 3 is attached to the base member 34 to cover or receive the tooth therein, and the cover 36 can be a semi-transparent or transparent material, and when the contents or the inner 4 are viewed to open or break the package 14, The cover 36 can be at least a portion of each of the panels. As shown in Figures 4 through ,, the member 34 and the cover member 38' are adapted to cover the base and structure, and can also be used as a gap. A more detailed description of various specific shapes can be used: the cover is removed. The cover 36 can also be used as part of the material used for the information and the information component 16. Further, the teaching base member 34 and the cover label are covered in the package. 14 is, for example, interposed between, and particularly matched to, the interior of the cover 36. The surface of the cover 36 36 200948680. As can be seen from Figures 4 to 6, the toothbrush 12 is housed within the package 14 and can be transparent by the consumer. The cover 36 is viewed. As described in more detail below, the indicator 16 is operatively coupled to the package 14 including one or both of the base member 34 and the cover 5 cover 36. As described, the electric toothbrush package 10 further includes Indicator 16. For clarity, indicator 16 is omitted from Figure 4 but is shown in Figure 5. Indicator 16 can be used in many different ways. And operatively coupled to the package assembly 10, the various configurations 'packaging assembly 10' includes a base member 10 34, a cover 36 and a toothbrush 12 depending on the desired visual effect. As further shown in FIG. 5, the indicator 16 can include one having a first characterization element 40 of a first mark 42 and a second characterization element 44 having a first mark 46. In this configuration, the first characterization element 40 is placed on the cover 36 and in a preferred configuration The portion of this indicator 16 is printed directly onto the cover 36. This characterization element 40 15 can be considered as a visual characterization reference element 40. Moreover, the second characterization element 44 is included on a separate member, which can be referenced It is an insert 48 and is a member that is separated from the base packaging element. The insert 48 can be considered as a visual characterization insert 48. The insert 48 has a generally flat upper plate 50 having the second indicia 46 thereon. The insert 48 further has a pair of side panels 52 that rely on it, the side panels 52 having a concave arcuate shape for easy attachment to the head 18, as described in more detail below. In this configuration, the second characterization element 44 is operatively coupled to the toothbrush 12 and positioned below the first characterization element 40. The characterization elements 40, 44 can be placed at different locations on the package 14. As seen from Figure 5, the first characterization element 40 and the second characterization element 25 44 have similarly designed labels 42, 46. Standards, 42, 46 groups 200948680 into indicators 16 ' However, can be any visually perceptible components, including wire sets, dots, symbol design, graphics, pattern representation, pictures, symbols, color components and specific Mohr signs Or Moore pattern. Indicator 16 is constructed to produce a visual effect when a consumer views the package combination. 5 As shown in Figures 5 and 6, individual components are attached to form the package assembly 10. As described with respect to this configuration, the second characterization element 44 is operatively coupled to the toothbrush 12. In an exemplary configuration, the insert is attached to the toothbrush 12, wherein the side panels 52 are attached to the head 18 by adhesive or other known attachment means. The insert 48 is movably attached, wherein a consumer can remove the insert 48 after purchasing and opening the package 14. As shown in Figure 6, the upper panel 50 is positioned over the cleaning portion 26, and the toothbrush 12 containing the first characterization element 44 attached thereto is then attached or otherwise supported by the base member 34 of the package cassette 4. The cover 36 is then positioned over the toothbrush 12 and attached to the base member 34 in a known attachment manner. As is clear from Figures 5 and 6, the first characterization element 4 having the first flag, 42 is positioned above the second characterization element 44 having the second flag 46. Therefore, the markers 42 and © 46 are either - visually overlapping or superimposed. The total number 42 and 46 can also be aligned or slightly offset or staggered as needed. More specifically, at least one point of advantage from the outside of the package assembly, a viewer can be aware of at least a portion of the overlay of the characterization elements 40, 44. The first standard 42 series is complementary to the second standard 46, and the components 4, 44 produce a visual effect when a consumer views the package combination 1 。. An enhanced visual effect and visual representation can be manipulated by moving 70 pieces of 4G, 44 relative to each other, thus manipulating the superimposed marks more progressively. For example, the characterization elements 4〇, 44 are moved relative to each other at various speeds 200948680 ίο 15 20 , and the scene & as described later includes the visual effects required for the construction. The visual effect of the characteristics of the general health care device can be viewed by moving the test site 14 when the opposite piece is in the immovable position MA 4G, 44, and the towel is held - and the other element is maintained. The piece 4° ΠΡ select 'usually the binding or acknowledgment pieces 4 〇, 44 can be moved relative to the package 14. In an example structure, Α η« . ^ ^, 〇 〇 被 被 其中 , , , , , 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装 包装- The consumer can press the user input 32 through the cover 36 to actuate or vibrate the toothbrush 12. The vibration system is an example of motion. The head 18 and the cleaning 26 vibrate and thus move according to the actuation. Because the first characterization element 44 is attached to the head 18, the second characterization element 44 also moves due to vibration. Thus, in response to the vibration caused by user input, there will be a relative motion between the second characterization element 44 and the first characterization element 40, and the relative motion between the components of the index 产生 produces an activity for the consumer. Dynamic visual effects. The characterization elements 40, 44 in this configuration can be referred to as vibration characterization elements. The first characterization element 40 remains stationary and this element is considered to visually characterize the reference element. This configuration may also be reversed as desired, wherein the first characterization element 40 can be configured to move and the second characterization element 44 can be motionless as a reference element. It will also be appreciated that the two characterization elements 40, 44 can be configured to move as desired. While an enhanced visual effect is produced by the relative motion of the index elements, it can be appreciated that the index 16 can also take the form of a single moiré pattern (e.g., Figures 2 and 3) operatively coupled to the package 14. The indicator 16 of this form has an overlapping design that can be printed on the ❹ 12 25 200948680 brush; the base member 34 or the cover 36 produces a visual effect on the viewer. Surnames Figures 7 through 11 disclose other example structures of the present invention. The structure of Figures 7 through 11 is similar to that of Figures 4 through 6, and like elements will have similar reference numbers in the multi-number (four). As shown in FIG. 7, the -pack 5f combination (10) generally includes an electric toothbrush 112, a package 114, and an operation, coupled to the index 116 of the toothbrush 112 and the package 114. As described, the metrics 116 can take a variety of different forms, and in this configuration the metrics include additional features's visual effects that have a greater impact on the viewer. The toothbrush 112 is substantially identical to the toothbrush 12 of Figures 4 through 5, and the inner valley described above is suitable for this configuration. Similarly, package 114 is similar to Figures 4 through 6, package 14, and generally includes a housing formed by base member 134 and cover 136. The cover 136 is constructed in a shape and size to define a recess 137 that is generally associated with the shape of the toothbrush 112. As mentioned above, the cover is typically transparent. Figures 7 through 9 further show that indicator 116 is operatively coupled to package assembly 100. In this particular example configuration, indicator 116 is bonded to base member 134 and toothbrush 112. As further shown in FIGS. 7 and 8, index 116 includes a first characterization element 14A having a first flag 142 and a second characterization element 144 having a first index 146. In this configuration, the first characterization element 140 is positioned on the base member 134 and in a preferred configuration, the characterization element 140 is printed directly to the base member 134. This characterization element 140 can be considered as a visual characterization reference element 140. Additionally, the first characterization element 140 includes a first section 150 and the first indicia 142 includes a first design element 152. As previously mentioned, the indicator 116 can include many different elements. The elements can include visual representations including photographs, graphics, graphics, symbols, images, color columns, graphics, and other designs. As further shown in Fig. 7, the 'first-characteristic forest 140' also includes a second section 154' which has the form of a mouth 156, in particular - a mouth that is opened by a person. This oral cavity 156 includes a description of the teeth 157 and the tongue 159. The oral cavity 156 is printed directly on the base member. The oral cavity 156 will be used in conjunction with the characterization elements described in more detail below. The index 116 also includes a second characterization element 144 and is a separate piece in the form of an insert 148. The insert 148 can be considered as a visual characterization insert 10 148. The insert 148 is a generally planar member 148 in this configuration and has a second target 146 thereon. Funeral 148 is generally transparent or translucent. Additionally, the second characterization element 144 includes a first segment 16A and a second flag 146 that includes a second design component 162. In addition, the second characterization element 144 also includes a second section 164 having the form in the form of a mini toothbrush 166 15 . This mini toothbrush 166, in conjunction with the oral cavity 156, will be described in more detail below. The mini toothbrush 166 can be integrated with the design element 162. The insert 148 further includes a cutout portion 168 sized to receive the head 118 of the toothbrush 112. In one configuration, the cut-away portion 168 is generally an hour-glass shape. In Figure 9, the cut-out portion is characterized by a boundary line. The cut portion is made through a portion of the first design element 152. As best seen in Figures 7 through 9, the first design element 152 of the first characterization element ι and the second design element 162 of the second characterization element 144 are generally complementary in shape. When the package assembly 100 is assembled, the design elements 152, 162 typically overlap and produce a visual 25 effect in the form of a moir effect. The oral cavity 156 and the mini toothbrush 166 are also complementary to one another. As described in 200948680, the various elements of the private label 116 synergistically produce a visual effect for a consumer viewing package combination.

10 15

20, as best seen in Figures 7 and 10 through 11, individual components are attached to create a package combination. The second characterization element 144 is attached to the dental brush 112' wherein the cleaning portion 126 is received by the ablation portion 168 in an interference fit. The toothbrush 112 is typically attached or supported by the base member 134. The cover 136 is placed over the toothbrush 112 and attached to the base member 134, and the toothbrush 112 is received within the recess 137 of the cover 136. It should be noted that the cover 136 is not shown in Figures 10 and 11. As is evident from circle 10 and Figure 11, second characterization element 144 is positioned above first characterization element 14 ,, in particular, second design element 162 is overlaid on first design element 152, thereby creating a visual effect. The lines of the design components can be considered as a design, and the Moir pattern is produced by placing them in an overlapping manner. It must be understood that the design elements 152, 162 can be aligned as needed or offset in Figure 1G. As further shown in Figure 10, the mini toothbrush 166 is placed proximate to the oral cavity 156. It must be further understood that in Figure 10, the teeth 12 are in an unactuated state. Another enhanced feature, like the aforementioned structure, is generated in response to user input 132. As shown in Fig. 11, pressing the user's input 132' toothbrush 112 through the cover 136 will actuate and vibrate. The insert 148 is connected to the head 118' of the m. Thus, the first design element is called for immoval = one § and then the member 162 is moved, thereby creating another visual effect. This reaction is vibrating and the mini toothbrush 166 moves relatively close to the immovable port. ID6 15 200948680 Specifically this vibration produces a visual effect of the movement of the mini toothbrush 166 5 10 towards the tooth 157 as indicated by arrow A.
