Description

v A. JONES. ADVERTISING DEVICE.
APPLICATION FILED AUG-30, I915- Patented Feb. 8,1916.
INVEN'I'EIII UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
ALBERT JONES, OF SOMERVILLE, MASSACHUSETTS, ASSIGNOR TO ALEXANDER F. LEE, 0F SOMERVILLE, MASSACHUSETTS.
ADVERTISING DEVICE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ALBERT JONES, a citizen of the United States, residing at Somer- \'ille. county of Middlesex, Stateof MassavliHStttS. have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Advertising Devices, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
My invention has for its object the production of an automatic figure which is particularly adapted to be used in display windows for advertising and the like. It is so constructed and arranged that it is adapted to draw attention to itself, and to objects which it is desired to advertise.
My invention will be fully understood from the following description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, and the novel features thereof are clearly defined and particularly pointed out in the claims at the close of this specificatlon.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a front elevation of a device embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same. Fig. 3 is a detail of the upper portion of the device showing the head and indicating arm in the position occupied after being acted on by the mechanism.
In the embodiment of my invention illustrated in the drawings there is shown a figure which represents that of a human being. It is rigidly mounted on a base 12 which may be of any suitable form, and consists of a body 13, legs 14 and 15, arms 16 and 17. and a head 18. The legs 14 and 15 are integral with or rigidly attached to the body 13, and the arms 16 and 17 and the head 18 are movably mounted and adapted to operate in the manner hereinafter to be described. 1
Beneath the base 12 is a shaft 19 rotatably mounted, being journaled in brackets 20, 21, secured to the base. A driving gear 22 is secured to the shaft which-is adapted to be connected with suitable driving mechanism not shown, such as an electric motor, clock work, or the like.
A disk 23 which may be of metal, Wood, or other suitable material is secured to the shaft 19, and is provided at one side with a cam surface 24 which is adapted to be engaged by the horizontal end-25 of a rod 26, to which the neck 27 of the figure is secured. The rod 26 is loosely mounted within the body 13, the leg 14 and base 12. A spring 28 secured to the base at one end, and to an arm 29 on the rod 26 at the other end tends to hold the horizontal portion 25 against the cam surface 24. When the lower portion 30 of the cam is in contact with the horizontal member 25, the head 18 is arranged so that the face is presented to the front, and when the high portion 31 of the cam contacts with the member the rod 26 is rotated to turn the face toward the right, as shown in Fig. 3.
At one side of the disk there is a plurality of pins 32 which are secured to the disk 23, and are adapted to successively engage the portion 33 of a metallic strip 34 secured to one end of a lever 35 pivoted at 36 to a bracket 37 on the base 12. A suitable stop 71 secured to the base 12 prevents the lever from dropping below the position shown in Fig. 2. A rod 38 which is loosely mounted within the figure passes through the base 12 and is engaged at its lower end by the strip 34 mounted on the lever 35. The arm 16 is pivotally mounted at 70 on the body 13 and is provided at its outer end with a closed-hand 72. The rod 38 is pivotally secured to the inside of the arm 16, as shown at 73. The pins 32 and the lever 35 are so arranged that as the disk 23 rotates the first pin 32 contacts with the edge 33 of the strip 35 and lifts the lever, thereby causing the arm 16 to be raised to the position shown in dotted lines in Fig. 2. As the pin passes the edge 33 of the strip 35, the weight of the arm causes the arm to drop down into position shown in full lines in Fig. 2. The other pins 32 cause this operation to be repeated. After the pins pass the lever 35, the arm stays in its lowermost position until the pins come in contact again with the lever as the disk rotates. While I have shown the three pins in' the present embodiment of the invention, it is obvious that any arrangement of pins may be employed.
The arm 17 is operated by a cam .40 which is secured to the shaft 19 beneath the leg 15 of the figure. A lever 41 pivoted at 42 to a bracket 43 secured to the base 12 is arranged Patented Feb. 8, 1916.
beneath the shaft 19 so as to contact with P the cam 40. Asthe cam-rotates the lever 41 is caused to move downwardly about the pivot 42. A suitable spring 44 is provided tending to draw the lever upwardly and cause it to follow the cam. The arm 17 is provided at one end with a finger 46 and is with an inwardly projecting portion 47 having an eye 48 secured to it. A rod 49 linked into the eye 48 at one (and passes through the body 13 and base 12 and'is' securednt the other end to the free end of the lever 41, being oflset as shown at 50 in order to provide room for the cam 40. The parts are so arranged that when the cam is in the position shown in Fig. 2 the arm is down at the side in the position shown in full lines in Fig. 1. As the cam rotates the lever 41 is swung about its pivot 45 into'the position shown in Fig. 3. The cam 40, cam 24, pins 32, and the disk 23 are so arranged that the arm 16 is raised up and down three times, the head is turned to the right and the arm 17 raised to a horizontal position.
The device is particularly adapted to be placed in a store window and is so constructed and arranged that it, will when properly positioned, rap on' the window pane and thereby attract attention of those passing and it will then face and point to the particular object or objects which it is desired to advertise.
What I claim is 1. In a device of the character described,
an automaton having a pair of pivoted arms mounted thereon, automatic means for giving one of said arms a knocking movement and automatic mechanism for giving the other of said arms a pointing movement.
-2. In a device of the character described,
\ an automaton having a pair of movably mounted arms and a movable head, means for giving one of said arms a knocking movement, and mechanism for turning said head and for giving to the other of said arms a pointing movement.
eratively connected with the said rod for givlng the said arm a pointingmovement.
4. In a device of the character described,
aton connected at one end with one of said arms, and projecting through the base, a
revolving drum mounted beneath said base having a plurality of projecting pins secured thereto, a pivoted lever in engagement at one end with said rod and adapted to be successively engaged by said pins to cause the said arm to have a knocking movement; a second rod loosely mounted in said automaton connected at one end to the other of said arms and projecting through said base, a pivoted lever to which said second rod is secured, and a revolving cam adapted to en-' 5. In a device of the character described,
an automaton having a movable head and a pair of pivoted arms, a base upon which Y said automaton is supported, a rod loosely mounted in said automaton connected at one end with one of said arms, and projecting through the base, a revolving drum mounted beneath said base having a plurality of projecting pins secured thereto, a pivoted lever in engagement at one end with said rod and adapted to be successively engaged bysaid pins to cause the said arm to have a knocking movement, a second rod loosely mounted in said automaton connected at one end to the other of said arms and projecting through said base, a pivoted member to which said second rod is secured, a revolving cam adapted to engage said lever to give the said arm a swinging movement, and a third rod rotatably mounted in said automaton which is secured to said head at one end and projects through the base at the other end, an arm secured to said third rod and a revolving cam adapted to engage the said arm and give the said head a turning motion.
In testimony whereof I afiix my signature, in presence of two witnesses.
ALBERT JONES.
