  • Patent number: 10885297
    Abstract: The non-contact capture device allows for an image of an object to be captured when the object is not making contact with any portion of the non-contact capture device. The non-contact capture device comprises an electronic compartment comprising a camera and a light source, wherein the camera and light source are directed to an image capture region, a housing guide comprising a leg extending away from the electronic compartment to support a collar, and an image capture region spaced away from the electronic compartment and the housing guide. The collar extends laterally around only a portion of the image capture region forming an entry gap into the image capture region.

  • Patent number: 9563696
    Abstract: At least some aspects of the present disclosure feature systems and methods for managing notes. The note management system includes a note source, a note recognition module, a note extraction module, and a note labeling module. The note source is a visual representation of a scene having a note. The note recognition module is configured to receive the visual representation and determine a general boundary of the note from the visual representation. The note extraction module is configured to extract content of the note from the visual representation based on the determined general boundary. The note labeling module is configured to label the note with a category.
