  • Publication number: 20160095740
    Abstract: Techniques and wearable appliances for monitoring bruxism, and/or for alleviating bruxism or sleep apnea related to bruxism are provided. In certain example embodiments, there is provided a custom teeth guard configured to be attached to at least some teeth in one of the upper or lower jaws, having at least two different non-zero amounts of padding arranged at positions located between teeth in the upper jaw and teeth in the lower jaw in accordance with predetermined strength of grinding of teeth at the positions. The custom teeth guard may be useful in helping to preempt apneic events and/or the like, e.g., by reducing the incidence and/or severity of teeth grinding.

  • Publication number: 20150241153
    Abstract: A firearm safety system, including a firearm and a uniform. The firearm includes a directional transmitter, a directional receiver, and a locking mechanism. The uniform includes an omnidirectional transmitter, an omnidirectional receiver, and an alert mechanism. The directional transmitter and directional receiver are proximate and substantially parallel to the barrel of the firearm. The locking mechanism prevents the firearm from launching a projectile if the firearm is targeting the uniform. The alert mechanism provides feedback to an individual equipped with the uniform if the uniform is targeted by the firearm.

  • Publication number: 20150034773
    Abstract: Systems and/or methods for reducing problems associated with the train/railroad systems are provided. In certain example embodiments, a system and/or method is provided wherein a sensor monitors a particular area (e.g. a train/railroad crossing, a tunnel entrance or exit, etc.) and transmits data (e.g. an image and/or video) to a train as it approaches the monitored area (e.g. when it is within a predetermined distance of the monitored area). In certain example embodiments, the sensor may be enclosed within a housing to prevent damage thereto. A display within the train may indicate whether or not there is a problem at the particular monitored area (e.g. a blockage at a crossing, a cave-in at a tunnel, etc.). Multiple images corresponding to multiple areas may be displayed, and may be ordered, for example, to the train. The conductor of the train may take appropriate action to avoid accidents and/or to reduce the impact of inevitable accidents (e.g., by stopping the train or reducing speed).

  • Publication number: 20140209396
    Abstract: Certain example embodiments of this invention relate to techniques that harness air/wind power to charge and/or re-charge a battery of a vehicle that is at least partially electrically powered. In certain example embodiments, air/wind enters into a channel formed in a vehicle and turns a turbine which, in turn, generates electricity that may be used to charge and/or re-charge a battery of the vehicle. In certain example embodiments, the velocity of the air/wind may be increased within the channel by virtue of features including, for example, retractable and/or directional vanes and/or side wall elements that help create constricting locations (or choke points). In certain example embodiments, the velocity of the air/wind may be increased within the channel by virtue of features that produce the Coanda effect. Thus, for instance, both the Venturi effect and the Coanda effect may be used to increase the efficiency of the overall system.

  • Publication number: 20140144065
    Abstract: Certain example embodiments of this invention relate to adhesive-based pest traps that can be used to trap pests (e.g., rodents such as rats or mice, cockroaches, spiders, snakes, etc.) trying to escape from a toilet or the like. For example, a trap may be disposed in, over, and/or around a toilet's bowl. The pest traps may be supported in the toilet's bowl by a plurality of arms and/or legs. An adhesive may be provided to one or more surfaces of the trap, e.g., so that pests traversing such surfaces are likely to become stuck thereon. In certain example embodiments, the adhesive may be baited to attract one or more particular types of pests. A poison also may be targeted to one or more of these particular types of pests in certain example embodiments.

  • Publication number: 20130114870
    Abstract: A system is presented that improves current medical imaging analysis systems. The system acquires medical image data of a patient and links the medical image data to the patient's personal information and the particular drugs a patient is using for treating a clinically diagnosed illness. The system can then associate the information and attempt to match it to information stored in a medical imaging database to help the medical personnel diagnose the patient's illness and determine which drugs are likely to help the patient or likely to have certain side effects on the patient.

  • Patent number: 8430872
    Abstract: Certain example embodiments relate to techniques for using coherent electromagnetic (EM) waves to treat tumors and/or other growths. In certain example embodiments, a growth is imaged. Based on this image, a holographic plate is prepared. Coherent electromagnetic waves are then focused on the holographic plate so that a holographic image of the growth is formed on the actual growth. Magnetic particles may be injected at or proximate to the growth and captured in the EM field corresponding to the holographic image such that these injected particles are caused to congregate in and/or on the growth. In certain example embodiments, bombarding of the growth with the injected particles may help damage or destroy the tumor. In certain example embodiments, the particles, once attached to and/or embedded in the actual growth may be irradiated (e.g., using a microwave or other energy source) so as to further damage or destroy the growth.

  • Patent number: 8250961
    Abstract: A system and/or method for securing areas (e.g. airport terminals, courtrooms, embassies, borders, property surrounding critical infrastructure, areas within cities/towns, etc.) against terrorists is provided. In certain example embodiments, a system and/or method is provided wherein individuals pass (e.g. walk, drive, etc.) through a gateway before gaining access to a secured area. Signals capable of detonating certain explosives that might be carried by the individuals passing through the gateway are emitted in or proximate the gateway. The gateway may be shielded to minimize damage to the surrounding areas. In certain example embodiments, arc currents are generated to trigger the detonation of explosives. In certain example embodiments, explosives may be detonated using cellular signals.

  • Publication number: 20110205101
    Abstract: Certain example embodiments of this invention relate to a holography-based missile defense shield. In certain example embodiments, an EM field is created on or proximate to a missile. Based on imaging and/or trajectory data, a holographic plate is prepared such that a holographic projection may be generated therefrom. Electromagnetic waves are then focused on the holographic plate as a reference beam so that the holographic image is generated. In certain example embodiments, the holographic image may correspond to the missile itself, a portion of the missile, a substantially planar shape, a substantially three-dimensional shape, and/or the like. In certain example embodiments, the holographic image focused on or near the missile will interfere with the operation of the missile such that it is damaged, destroyed, or otherwise rendered less of a threat.

  • Publication number: 20100327586
    Abstract: Certain example embodiments of this invention relate to techniques for collecting run-off and/or draining water from commercial or residential sites, filtering out the liquid, and using the filtered liquid to engage one or more turbines to generate electricity. In certain example embodiments, the one or more turbines are located downstream of filtration, grease-collection, and/or other purification devices. The electricity generated by the one or more turbines may be stored in batteries, serve as a power source for an active drainage/filtration system, used for other activities in or around the site, etc. In certain example embodiments, elements (such as sidewalls, vanes, and/or the like) may be provided upstream of the at least one turbine and downstream of the filtration subsystem, with adjacent elements defining constriction locations therebetween to help accelerate the flow of fluids passing therethrough.
