  • Patent number: 10817071
    Abstract: A method, apparatus and computer program product are provided for displaying messages by reducing a reflectivity of a display. A display, such as a smart mirror, provides reflective properties and digital information. The reflectivity of some portions of the display may be altered such that the display provides the visual effect of steam. By varying the reflectivity in different portions of the display, messages may be provided via the display so as to appear written in the steam. Trigger actions, such as a user entering the vicinity, the detected sound of miming water, and/or the like, may cause the visual effect of steam or display of the message. A user may provide a message by a hand gesture, or writing the message in the air and see the message at is provided via a display. Users may transmit messages to other users, and may view received messages in the display.

  • Publication number: 20200326292
    Abstract: An equipment-monitoring system having a resistive sensor designed for two- or four-terminal sensing of damage thereto caused by an environmental exposure. In an example embodiment, the resistive sensor comprises a sense resistor susceptible to the environmental exposure and a reference resistor protected from the environmental exposure, the sense and reference resistors being internally connected to four terminals of the sensor in a manner that enables external bridge-type measurements of the electrical resistance of the sense resistor. In some embodiments, the sense resistor comprises a relatively large number of flat metal stripes connected in parallel to one another between two of the four terminals, which advantageously provides an extended dynamic range of the damage detectable with the corresponding sensor and improves the sensor reliability.
