  • Patent number: 10838407
    Abstract: A programmable power tool and method and systems of programming a power tool using wireless communication. An external device having a processor and a transceiver establishes a communication link with the power tool. The external device receives, with the transceiver, a first mode profile stored on the power tool. The first mode profile is defined by a profile type and a first value associated with a parameter for executing the profile type. The external device displays a control screen including the profile type and the parameter at the first value, and receives a user input. The external device generates, in response to the user input, a second mode profile by modifying the parameter to be at a second value. The external device transmits, with the transceiver, the second mode profile to the power tool.

  • Patent number: 10817313
    Abstract: An initial workspace recommendation engine recommends a user interface component available for inclusion in an initial workspace of a newly installed application instance. In some cases, a classifier included in the engine classifies the available user interface component based on data describing multiple previously installed instances of the application. For example, the multiple instances are installed on multiple user devices, and are associated with user features describing the installed instances. In addition, the initial workspace recommendation engine receives a set of new user features associated with the newly installed application instance. The classifier classifies the available user interface component based on a similarity between the new user features and the user features describing the installed instances.

  • Patent number: 10775981
    Abstract: According to the invention, there is provided a computer-implemented method for duplicating a modeled object displayed on a touch screen and designing its duplicated version in a single gesture. The method comprises detecting (201) contact of an appendage within an activation zone associated to the first modeled object. If the contact is maintained more than a predetermined amount of time Tm (202), the method duplicates (203) the first modeled object into a second modeled object. The method, while maintaining contact between the appendage and the touch screen, performs at least one design operation (204) on the second modeled object depending of the movement of the appendage on the touch screen.

  • Patent number: 10775997
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein that are capable of causing a control interface to be presented on a touch-enabled device based on a motion or absence thereof. A motion, such as a hover gesture, can be detected and the control interface presented in response to the detection. Alternatively, absence of a motion can be detected and the control interface presented in response to the detection. A hover gesture can occur without a user physically touching a touch screen of a touch-enabled device. Instead, the user's finger or fingers can be positioned at a spaced distance above the touch screen. The touch screen can detect that the user's fingers are proximate to the touch screen, such as through capacitive sensing. Additionally, finger movement can be detected while the fingers are hovering to expand the existing options for gesture input.

  • Patent number: 10719206
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed which detect unresponsive interactions with display pages. Specifically, a client computing device may retrieve display pages from a remote computing system for local display. A local interaction monitoring component may monitor local interactions with the display pages, identify those interactions that did not produce a change in the display page as unresponsive interactions, and transmit unresponsive interaction information to the remote computing system. The remote system may aggregate the unresponsive interaction information to determine unresponsive elements of the display page and modify page templates associated with the unresponsive elements to reduce unresponsive interactions.

  • Patent number: 10699461
    Abstract: A telepresence communication uses information captured by a first capture device about a first user and information captured by a second capture device about a second user to generate a first avatar corresponding to the first user and a second avatar corresponding to the second user. A scene can be rendered locally or by a remote server in which the first avatar and the second avatar are both rendered in a virtual space. The first avatar is rendered to move based on movements made by the first user as captured by the first capture device, and the second avatar is rendered to move based on movements made by the second user as captured by the second capture device. The avatars may be realistic, based on avatar templates, or some combination thereof. The rendered scene may include virtual interactive objects that the avatars can interact with.
