Description

DESCRIPTION

ELECTROMECHANICAL SYSTEM imaging

OBJECT OF THE INVENTION

The present application invention relates to an electromechanical system for imaging, which provides the function for which it is intended, several advantages to be later, apart from others inherent to its organization and constitution.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

It should be mentioned the cinematograph and television today and as a reference to the state of the art.

As is known, the cinematograph is a projection system of photographic images depicting many other moments of a certain action, which are projected on a screen. These photographs are a celluloid film, separated by a band, which is run by means of special mechanisms such that, when being centered a particular photograph, is for some detention time, and that cum film to give place for the next frame to focus the light cone projection is found sealed, so that the observer does not perceive the shift, and before it has disappeared the first image of the retina, is the second, producing the illusion of movement.

TV is also based on the physiological fact of the persistence of images on the retina, but with scanning and image control by an electron beam within a vacuum tube point by point.

In short, all known image projection systems require a projection surface formed by a flat, without which they would not be possible. It not is known in the current state of the art system imaging in space or closed images, in which the beginning and the end of them appear together, to form an envelope observer himself.

DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The petitioner of the present invention, has designed an electromechanical system imaging, from his experience in the field in question, and through which can get representations of virtual images in space or closed images, based on the fact physiological persistence of images on the retina of the observer, as the case may be located outside of the generated image or inside.

The results of the system are dramatic effect and extraordinary realism, applicable to many activities, especially in the field of advertising, where you want to get relief images, three-dimensional or closed images that are attached the beginning and the end. In general, the system of the present invention comprises at least one line of light spots which rotates about an axis parallel or perpendicular axis, generating in the space a virtual image based on the persistence of the light spots on the retina the observer.

Depending on the angle and shape of the dotted line with the axis of revolution different shapes (spherical, cylindrical, conical, flat and irregular) form.

The shaft driving line or dotted lines, is activated by a synchronous motor and governed all the time by a computer or microprocessor.

Also, in an alternative embodiment of the invention, the light spots are formed from at least one LED diode, which lies in the inner contour of a ring transparent optical plastic or glass, whose contour 360 ° , is crossed by an outer and radial to said ring optic fiber, so that its proximal end is that captures light LED, while its distal end forms the light spot, all when the travel of the fiber is comprised in the viewing angle of the LED diode.

The number of rings is arbitrary, forming in combination a modular stacking comprises a cylindrical structure, each of which rings corresponds an optical fiber, and at least one LED.

The optical fibers of the respective rings are supported by a rotating cylindrical shell, based active axis system, which when activated by mechanical means, performs rotation about the axial stacking of the rings. The distal ends of the optical fibers form a line "n" light points which constitute generatrix of a virtual image whose surface will depend on the number of LEDs that incorporate each ring, and its viewing angle, but could be an envelope endless, when the number of LEDs per ring corresponds to a number of four, and whose LEDs must be located at the ends of two diameters intersecting orthogonally and having a viewing angle of 120 °, sufficient to complement each itself to cover the 360 ​​° of a circle.

The system includes an optical encoder for detecting the beginning of each line of luminous points, finding the set thereof located within a hood which has been extracted air to improve the performance of the mechanical members involved in the same, reduce energy consumption and prolong its life. In another alternative embodiment of the above system, the rings are replaced by larger diameter disks provided with an axial hole for location of the LEDs, and optical fibers are removed, making the disc itself is equivalent to that of those function. The cylindrical shell rotating around the discs is of opaque material having a paraxial longitudinal groove, which only allows viewing of the LED light in its line by line rotational displacement, according to the optical encoder.

In another embodiment, the LED diodes are aligned column along an eccentric printed circuit or not with respect to the cylindrical envelope which constitutes the backbone of the system and which carries the optical fibers, which in this case realizable They will be four for each LED, located at the ends of two ideal diameters intersecting orthogonally, and the distal ends of the fibers meet tangents to form the light spots to be activated when the corresponding fiber traverse the optical angle Led to belong .

This solution to the system reduces installation costs because fewer LEDs which are longer require the elimination of optical rings.

In another alternative embodiment, derived from the aforementioned, four columns of LEDs and four optical fibers, one for each LED are provided, all opposed and equidistant, whereby four different or not images are obtained, of 90 ° each one in representation. In this embodiment it is possible to reduce the rate at one quarter, approximately 750 rpm Another alternative embodiment of the invention, is based on the same principle of imaging by scanning a light line mechanical rotation about an axis, "n" points, but with the particularity that is provided a single light spot created by a light beam (laser, cathode ray, etc.), or other system any projection of a light spot, which magnetic deflection , electrostatic, electro-optical or mecanoóptica, it is moving from beginning to end of the light line (as in the TV system), modulating it in intensity. This system, unlike the basic system requires a screen on which to project the light spot, whether surround the viewer, or not (observation from outside).

The system can be constituted at least by a luminous line along 360 °, but may be several equidistant lines of light (360 ° between "n" lines), and acting at the same time for dividing by segments of the surface of the image Total formed on the screen, which may be cylindrical, spherical, etc. Like the previous basic systems, the system will have an optical encoder or other systems for detecting each position of the mechanical rotation of the beginning of each line, which will be transmitted to the computer to send it the beginning of information for creation of the line point by point, to the end of this and beginning of the next, to detect the next position, creating a complete rotation "n" lines, and depending on the quality or image resolution. Also, as in previous systems, the line or lines of light may be of a single color, or triple, in order to create color images by the three basic colors. The assembly may be located or not within a protective cover, being able to extract air from the same or not.

In another alternative embodiment, the system would be by projection of a point of coherent light (laser). In this case it has a drum or bell constituting a translucent screen that is observed from the outside, while if the drum is transparent, can be projected onto a screen outside cylindrical, spherical, etc. This system comprises a laser beam projector, incident on the faces of a prismatic mirror rotary located in the center of said drum so that each mirror face a luminous line by varying the angle of incidence arises, creating many luminous lines as send the coder, depending on the speed and number of faces of the prismatic mirror.

In another alternative embodiment, the system would be by means of cathode ray so that a single light spot by a cathode ray beam impinging on the phosphor side of the tube makes translucent screen originates. An example would be using two CRTs, located opposite an opaque drum clamping system, which has longitudinal grooves, to display the surfaces of the tube screens cathode rays, where the luminous lines originate, vision always effected from the outside. The system also provided chambers imaging for such forms of reproduction of images, based on the same system of mechanical rotation about an axis of a line or light sensitive lines, with a typical system optics, so that images affect the sensitive line and are scanned line by line and point by point 360 °, can the luminous lines to be sensitive to one color or triple, in order to obtain color images by the three basic colors.
