  • Publication number: 20220132246
    Abstract: Systems and methods for authenticating a passive speaker include (i) activating, by a playback device configured to drive the passive speaker, a passive speaker identification circuit of the passive speaker by providing an identification signal to an input terminal of the passive speaker, wherein the passive speaker is a particular type of passive speaker having particular acoustic characteristics; (ii) while the passive speaker identification circuit is active, measuring, by the playback device, an electrical current of the identification signal; (iii) determining, based on the measured electrical current of the identification signal, an impedance modulation of the passive speaker; (iv) determining, by the playback device, the particular type of the passive speaker based on the impedance modulation of the passive speaker; and (v) applying, by the playback device, a calibration to the playback device based on the determined particular type of the passive speaker.

  • Publication number: 20210283139
    Abstract: The invention provides for bifunctional molecules comprising an UchL5 binding partner and a target protein binding partner linked via a flexible linker. A bifunctional molecule according to the invention binds to UchL5 and to the target protein, thereby facilitating degradation of the target protein bound to the target protein binding partner. The invention also provides for use of a bifunctional molecule for preventing or treating disease.

  • Patent number: 11008776
    Abstract: Safety device (1) for holding and sharing among a plurality of users a key (100) provided with a remote control (102). The safety device (1) includes: an external housing (2) adapted to internally contain said key (100), configurable according to an open configuration and a closed configuration; a lock (5) that can be commanded for switching between a closed status, that prevents said external housing (2) in the closed configuration from switching into the open configuration, and an open status, that enables the external housing (2) to switch between the open and the closed configurations; means for interacting with said remote control (102) of the key (100); a transmission unit (18) configured to receive, directly or via an external server (107), command signals from an external command device (19); and a command and control unit (17).
