  • Patent number: 11056148
    Abstract: Technologies for cloud-based media search and editing include a video editor configured to build a media query and associate the media query with a dynamic content slot of a media program. When generating video output based on the media program, the video editor transmits the media query to a cloud analytics server and receives search results identifying one or more media clips produced by a number of mobile computing devices. The video editor may display a list of clips for selection by the user or may automatically include one of the clips in the output. The cloud analytics server transmits an acceptance policy defining criteria for acceptable media, based on the media query, to the mobile computing devices. The mobile computing devices configure capture settings according to the acceptance policy and may display a user interface to assist the user in capturing acceptable media. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 11035687
    Abstract: Technologies for directional wayfinding include a mobile computing device having one or more local location sensors to generate data indicative of movement of the mobile computing device. The mobile computing device captures first sensor data indicative of movement of the mobile computing device along a path and determines a series of waypoints based on the first sensor data. The waypoints may describe movement data of the mobile computing device, including length and direction of movement. The mobile computing device determines a series of directional instructions to guide a user of the mobile computing device back along the path in the reverse order and presents the directional instructions to the user. The mobile computing device may monitor the sensor data to determine whether the user has arrived at each waypoint while reversing the path. The sensors may include an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, or altimeter. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 10785615
    Abstract: Systems and methods may provide for establishing a data usage budget based on one or more of user input and historical usage data, wherein the data usage budget distinguishes between usage types and distinguishes between connection types. Additionally, a data usage of one or more client devices may be monitored in accordance with the data usage budget. In one example, the usage types are designated as one or more of a high bandwidth usage and a low bandwidth usage, and the connection types are designated as one or more of a capped connection and a non-capped connection.

  • Publication number: 20190304268
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein relate generally to providing information through tactility. A computer system may receive an input from a user. The computer system may identify one or more locations associated with haptic elements disposed on a wearable haptic apparatus. The computer system may generate a message that includes an indication of the one or more locations. The computer system may transmit this message to the wearable haptic apparatus. The wearable haptic apparatus may actuate one or more haptic elements disposed thereon based on the indication of the one or more locations included in the message.

  • Publication number: 20190197502
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a trusted cloud service such as an “electronic vault” may store records of a consumer's electronic data file history. These documents may come from disparate providers and include financial statements and the like. The trusted vault cloud may act as an online notary to certify documents are legitimate and may be trusted. For example, a retailer may dispute whether the consumer paid a debt. To resolve the issue the retailer may access the cloud vault to retrieve a bank statement for the consumer, whereby the bank statement is electronically notarized by the vault cloud and is thus credible to the retailer. The retailer may then see proof the consumer had indeed paid a past debt to the retailer. Other embodiments are described herein.

  • Publication number: 20170269632
    Abstract: Technologies are presented that provide contextually interactive apparel in practical implementations and applications. A method for directing a change in an interface of a wearable device may include detecting a trigger and providing a change command to an interface controller of a wearable device based on the trigger. The interface controller may direct a change (e.g., a change in visual pattern, audio, etc.) in an interface of the wearable device, based on the change command, that is perceivable by persons in proximity of the wearable device. The providing the change command may include providing one or more change commands to a plurality of wearable devices in a choreographed manner. The method may further include determining other wearable devices that exist and/or are being concurrently worn within a predetermined proximity of the wearable device, and providing information regarding the other wearable devices.
