  • Patent number: 9866765
    Abstract: Computationally implemented methods and systems include capturing a scene that includes one or more images, through use of an array of more than one image sensor, selecting a particular portion of the scene that includes at least one image, wherein the selected particular portion is smaller than the scene, transmitting only the selected particular portion from the scene to a remote location, and de-emphasizing pixels from the scene that are not part of the selected particular portion of the scene. In addition to the foregoing, other aspects are described in the claims, drawings, and text.

  • Patent number: 9795877
    Abstract: Described embodiments include a real-time system, method, and apparatus. A system includes an incoming object sensor configured to acquire data indicative of a trajectory of an incoming projectile. The system includes a human tracking circuit configured to acquire data indicative of a location of a human present in a monitored geographic area. The system includes a processing circuit configured to (i) receive the data indicative of the trajectory of the incoming projectile; (ii) predict a spatial relationship of the trajectory of the incoming projectile relative to the location of the human; and (iii) determine a suggested movement by the human to evade the incoming projectile. The system includes a transmitter circuit configured to transmit the suggested movement to evade the incoming projectile.

  • Publication number: 20170269688
    Abstract: Disclosed embodiments include methods, computer software program products, and systems for providing haptic feedback regarding software-initiated changes to user-entered text input. Given by way of illustration and not of limitation, in an illustrative method a first signal indicative of an autochange to user-entered text is received from an autocorrect module. The autochange is compared to a set of autochange attributes. A second signal is generated by a haptic feedback module responsive to comparing the autochange to a set of autochange attributes. The second signal is provided to a haptic feedback device, and haptic feedback is generated with the haptic feedback device responsive to the second signal.

  • Publication number: 20160309207
    Abstract: Computationally implemented methods and systems include accepting input of a request for a particular image of a scene that is larger than the particular image, transmitting the request for the particular image to an image sensor array that includes more than one image sensor and that is configured to capture the scene and retain a subset of the scene that includes the request for the particular image of the scene, receiving only the particular image from the image sensor array, wherein the particular image represents a subset of the scene, and wherein a size characteristic of the particular image is at least partially based on a property of a requestor, and presenting the received particular image to the requestor. In addition to the foregoing, other aspects are described in the claims, drawings, and text.
