  • Patent number: 10250964
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure generally relate to custom-fit in-ear audio devices. The custom-fit earpieces disclosed herein may include features providing superior retention in a user's ear while also maintaining desirable comfort and sound quality. The superior retention is generally provided by a curable filler disposed in a bladder that is deformed to conform to the shape of a user's outer ear as the filler material is cured. It has been found that a desired comfort level and sound quality can be achieved in a custom-fit earpiece by physically separating or at least partially decoupling the audio output member from other portions of the earpiece that are designed to enable the retention of the custom-fit earpiece within the user's ear.

  • Patent number: 10229667
    Abstract: Embodiments of the disclosure generally include a method and apparatus for receiving and separating unwanted external noise from an audible input received from an audible source using an audible signal processing system that contains a plurality of audible signal sensing devices that are arranged and configured to detect an audible signal that is received from any position or angle within three dimensional space. The audible signal processing system is configured to analyze the received audible signals using a first signal processing technique that is able to separate unwanted low frequency range noise from the received audible signal and a second signal processing technique that is able to separate unwanted higher frequency range noise from the received audible signal. The audible signal processing system can then combine the signals processed by the first and second signal processing techniques to form a desired audible signal that has a high signal-to-noise ratio throughout the full speech range.

  • Patent number: 10205914
    Abstract: Systems and methods for streaming video and/or audio from wireless cameras are provided. Methods may include, at a network camera, receiving an instruction to begin video capture from a first network node, including information identifying a second network node. A first video stream may be sent from the network camera to the first network node, and a second video stream may be simultaneously sent to the second network node. The first and second video streams may be based on common video capture data, and may be sent at different bitrates, different resolutions, different frame-rates, and/or different formats. A parameter of the second video stream may be adjusted in response to performance data received from the second network node or another network node.

  • Patent number: 10197592
    Abstract: A method of calibrating a wearable electronic device includes providing an indication of a target speed for an activity to a user wearing the wearable electronic device and receiving location data from a location data unit during the activity. The method also includes receiving, concurrently with the location data, user stride data associated with the user during the activity and computing a speed of the user as a function of the location data as a function of time. The method further includes populating a table of the speed of the user as a function of the user stride data and calibrating the wearable electronic device in accordance with the table.

  • Patent number: 10191518
    Abstract: Input devices having a thin profile and good comfort and feel are disclosed. In embodiments, an input device includes a sensor layer configured to effectuate a key press upon application of an activation force, and a collapsible layer coupled to the sensor layer. The collapsible layer may be configured to collapse in response to a collapsing force that is substantially equal to the activation force. When the collapsible layer collapses, the sensor layer may simultaneously effectuate the key press in response to application of the collapsing force.

  • Patent number: 10165838
    Abstract: Some embodiments include a protective cover for a mobile display device including a housing, a backplane, a liner, and a lip. The housing includes an outer portion and an inner portion, where the outer portion of the housing has a rectangular frame structure to provide a protective shell along an outer edge of the mobile display device, and where the inner portion receives and secures the mobile display device. The backplane is comprised of a rigid material and is coupled to a backside of the housing and provides a protective shell along a back side of the mobile display device. The liner has a corrugated soft rubber or polymer construction including a successive pattern of protrusions separated by a distance and is coupled to the inner portion of the housing. The lip is coupled to a front side of the housing to retain the mobile display device within the housing.

  • Patent number: 10140008
    Abstract: A knob for an input device may include a knob housing being rotatable on an axis, a shaft coupled to and extending from the knob housing along the axis, a ratchet wheel axially coupled to the shaft and including a toothed perimeter, and a resistance wheel axially coupled to the shaft and including a smooth perimeter, where the ratchet wheel and the resistance wheel are rotatable on the axis in correspondence with a rotation of the knob housing. A biasing mechanism provides a force on its first end to cause a roller to engage with the toothed perimeter of the ratchet wheel such that a ratcheted rotation occurs when the knob housing is rotated, and further provides a force on its second end to cause the second end to engage with the smooth perimeter of the resistance wheel such that a friction is provided when the knob housing is rotated.

  • Patent number: 10135547
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention are directed to control devices configured for use with computing devices. More specifically, the present invention relates to methods and devices for shortening wireless reconnection time by determining the presence of an object or body near a device. When the control device detects an object or body in proximity to the device, the control device may automatically establish a wireless connection with a host devices, such that when the control device receives any user interactions, the wireless connection has already been established, preventing loss of data.

  • Patent number: 10129631
    Abstract: A configurable headset includes a stock open-back configuration, wherein an audio profile for the headset in the stock open-back configuration is optimized. When the stock open-back configuration is physically modified to a closed-back configuration, the audio profile degrades, but is manually or automatically improved through selection of a pre-programmed compensated audio profile via an audio profile controller in communication with the configurable headset.
