Abstract: The present invention relates generally to the commercial distribution and sales of volatile motor fuels and more specifically to systems and methods for ensuring leak free storage of both liquid and vapor phase states of fuels stored at dispensing facilities. In addition, the present invention presents a simple device for measuring evaporative loss rates from fuel storage systems. Moreover, this invention provides a device for determining proper functioning of Stage I and Stage II vapor recovery techniques.
Abstract: An apparatus and system for incorporating a resilient source of high-visibility illumination into an article of footwear. A biomechanically-sound and hermetically-sealed electronics module contains a microprocessor, power source, and at least one light source, such as a light emitting diode, or LED. The LEDs are not externally visible, but rather illuminate a diffusive substrate that is incorporated into the construction of the footwear, allowing for visibility from substantially every angle above the bottom of the sole. A control panel enables the wearer to turn the power on and off, change colors, rotate through transition effects, and the like. A charging pad allows for the wireless and contact-less recharging of the onboard power source.
