  • Publication number: 20190364194
    Abstract: An electronic device displays a representative image. While displaying the representative image, the device detects a first input. In response to the first input, the device transitions from displaying the representative image to displaying a respective image that was acquired by a camera before acquiring the representative image. After transitioning from displaying the representative image to displaying the respective image, the device displays, in sequence starting with the respective image, at least some images acquired by the camera before acquiring the representative image and at least some of images acquired by the camera after acquiring the representative image. The device detects termination of the first input. In response to detecting termination of the first input, the device displays the representative image.

  • Patent number: 9475515
    Abstract: A mountable smart device holder for use on a shopping cart handle or the like. The holder includes: a front side having a generally planar surface; a lip that extends about a bottom and a side portion of the generally planar surface; a horizontal clamp and a vertical clamp proximately located in a lower corner region of the front side for holding a smart device, wherein the horizontal clamp and the vertical clamp include a lifting mechanism that raises both the horizontal clamp and the vertical clamp in response to pressing a single lever on one of the horizontal clamp and the vertical clamp; a mounting clamp affixed to the rear side of the holder, wherein the mounting clamp includes a spring loaded claw and lever element; and an opening in the generally planar surface that provides access to the lever element of the mounting clamp from the front side.

  • Patent number: 7947363
    Abstract: A coated article that includes a substrate and a wear-resistant coating scheme. The coated article may be a cutting insert shown to improve performance in chip-forming material removal operations or a wear-resistant component used in chipless forming operations. The wear-resistant coating scheme has an underlayer and top layer containing aluminum, chromium, and nitrogen. The coating scheme also includes a mediate multi-periodicity nanolayer coating scheme containing titanium, aluminum, chromium and nitrogen. The mediate multi-periodicity nanolayer coating scheme includes a plurality of sets of alternating layer arrangements. Each one of the alternating layer arrangements has a base layer comprising titanium, aluminum and nitrogen and a nanolayer region having a plurality of sets of alternating nanolayers. Each set of alternating nanolayers has one nanolayer having aluminum, chromium, titanium and nitrogen and another nanolayer having aluminum, chromium, titanium and nitrogen.

  • Patent number: 5585176
    Abstract: A diamond-coated tool or wear part and a process for making them. The process includes a sintering step. In that step, a substrate is sintered in an atmosphere and for a time and at a temperature so that superficial, exaggerated grain growth is promoted that imparts a surface roughness which may serve as anchoring sites during a subsequent diamond coating step which is performed by a vapor deposition technique. The diamond-coated tool or wear part includes a large grain substrate surface, and a high bond strength between the diamond coating and the substrate surface.

  • Patent number: 5108785
    Abstract: A method of boring holes in a circuit board assembly of the type having a first layer of material which is primarily reflective of light of a first light wavelength and having a second layer of material, overlying the first layer of material, which is primarily absorptive of light of the first light wavelength, comprising: tuning the frequency of a laser cutting device to the first light wavelength; directing a laser beam from the tuned laser cutting device onto the second layer of material in a region where a hole is to be provided; and terminating application of the laser beam after a hole has been bored through the second layer of material.
