AMENDED CLAIMS

received by the International Bureau on 18 May 2020 (18.05.20)

1. A portable or wearable fluidic animation capsule filled with a transparent fluid including a system (100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 1200, 1600, 1700, 1800, 1900, 2000, 2100) comprising at least one decorative element (102, 204, 302, 402, 502, 602, 702, 802, 1204, 1304, 1404, 1604, 2014, 2114) mechanically and moveably suspended in a fluid (116, 206, 326, 426, 510, 610, 726, 826, 1206, 1606, 1608, 1706, 1708, 1806, 1906, 2006, 2106) and held by mechanical fixation elements (104, 202, 304, 404, 506, 606, 704, 706, 804, 806, 1220, 1820, 1920, 2020, 2030, 2120, 2130), the fluid sharing a substantially similar refraction index as at least one of mechanical fixation elements so that the mechanical fixation is invisible, wherein a change of orientation of the system relative to gravity provokes a movement of the decorative elements.

2. The system of claim 1, wherein the mechanical fixation elements (104, 202, 304, 404, 506, 606, 704, 706, 804, 806) are connections allowing a limited movement of the decorative elements (102, 204, 302, 402, 502, 602, 702, 802, 1204, 1304, 1404, 1604, 2014, 2114).

3. The system of claim 1, wherein the mechanical fixation elements (104, 202, 304, 404, 506, 606, 704, 706, 804, 806) are at least one flexible membrane (1220, 1320, 1324, 1326, 1420, 1424, 1426, 1520, 1620, 1720, 1820, 1920) allowing a limited movement of the decorative elements (102, 204, 302, 402, 502, 602, 702, 802, 1204, 1304, 1404, 1604, 2014, 2114).

4. The system of claim 3, wherein the decorative elements (102, 204, 302, 402, 502, 602, 702, 802, 1204, 1304, 1404, 1604, 2014, 2114) are parts of the flexible membrane (1220, 1320, 1324, 1326, 1420, 1424, 1426, 1520, 1620, 1720, 1820, 1920) covered with a metallization, crystals, diamonds or any other decorative element.

5. The system of claim 3, wherein the decorative elements (102, 204, 302, 402, 502, 602, 702, 802, 1204, 1304, 1404, 1604, 2014, 2114) are one or more liquids or gels enclosed in the flexible membrane (1220, 1320, 1324, 1326, 1420, 1424, 1426, 1520, 1620, 1720, 1820, 1920).

6. The system of claims 2, 3, 4 or 5, wherein the at least one decorative element (102, 204, 302, 402, 502, 602, 702, 802, 1204, 1304, 1404, 1604, 2014, 2114) form at least one image.

7. The system of any of the preceeding claims, wherein a change of orientation of the system (100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 1200, 1600, 1700, 1800, 1900, 2000, 2100) relative to gravitiy provokes a movement of the decorative elements (102, 204, 302, 402, 502, 602, 702, 802, 1204, 1304, 1404, 1604, 2014, 2114), animating the image.

8. The system of claim 7, wherein at least one mobile element free to move in the surrounding fluid (116, 206, 326, 426, 510, 610, 726, 826, 1206, 1606, 1608, 1706, 1708, 1806, 1808, 1906, 2006, 2106) increases the movement of the at least one decorative element (102, 204, 302, 402, 502, 602, 702, 802, 1204, 1304, 1404, 1604, 2014, 2114) by colliding or resting temporarily on a part of the at least one decorative element (102, 204, 302, 402, 502, 602, 702, 802, 1204, 1304, 1404, 1604, 2014, 2114).

9. The system of claim 8, wherein at least one of the at least one mobile elements share a substantially similar refraction index with the fluid (116, 206, 326, 426, 510, 610, 726, 826, 1206, 1606, 1608, 1706, 1708, 1806, 1808, 1906, 2006, 2106).

10. A method consisting of animating a decorative object, such as personal accessories, using the system of claim 1.

11. The system of claim 1 , wherein the actuation means can be any actuation principle that creates an acceleration or deceleration force.

12. The system of claim 1, wherein the system has mechanical fixation elements with off-centered mass.
