  • Patent number: 9892628
    Abstract: Embodiments disclosed herein generally include a system and a method of controlling a portable electronic device based on the interaction of the portable electronic device with an electronic device, such as a mounting device. Embodiments of the disclosure may include a system and a method of providing information to the portable electronic device that causes the portable electronic device to perform one or more desirable functions or processes based on the portable electronic device's interaction with the mounting device. In some embodiments, the portable electronic device may respond differently when it is caused to interact with differently configured mounting devices. Some aspects of the invention may include an apparatus, method and/or computing device software application that are configured to more easily setup and reliably control a portable electronic device based on the interaction of the portable electronic device with the mounting device.

  • Patent number: 9554632
    Abstract: Cases for portable electronic devices are described including multiple alignment elements (e.g. slugs, magnets or physical securing means) embedded in a panel, such as the back panel of the case. Various accessories, such as stands, cord spools, mounts, communication devices, speakers, displays, etc., may also have multiple corresponding alignment elements (e.g. magnets, slugs or cooperative physical securing means) in them that allow the accessories to be semi-securely attached to the case in a plurality of specific positions and/or orientations.

  • Patent number: 6839672
    Abstract: An enhanced arrangement for a talking head driven by text is achieved by sending FAP information to a rendering arrangement that allows the rendering arrangement to employ the received FAPs in synchronism with the speech that is synthesized. In accordance with one embodiment, FAPs that correspond to visemes which can be developed from phonemes that are generated by a TTS synthesizer in the rendering arrangement are not included in the sent FAPs, to allow the local generation of such FAPs. In a further enhancement, a process is included in the rendering arrangement for creating a smooth transition from one FAP specification to the next FAP specification. This transition can follow any selected function. In accordance with one embodiment, a separate FAP value is evaluated for each of the rendered video frames.
