  • Publication number: 20200275862
    Abstract: Disclosed is a technique for use in generating and delivering 3-D printed wearables via the use of body image data where the body is in under multiple physical conditions. Some embodiments include further body part data including videos of sequences of motion, static images, both 2-D and 3-D modeling, and user preference. Users take videos and/or photos of parts of their body as input into a custom wearable generation application. The body photos are subjected to a precise computer vision (CV) process to determine specific measurements of the user's body and the stresses.

  • Publication number: 20200275861
    Abstract: Disclosed is a technique for use in generating and delivering 3-D printed wearables via a biomechanical analysis derived from commonly available hardware, such as a smartphone. Users take videos and/or photos of parts of their body as input into a custom wearable generation application. The body photos are subjected to a precise computer vision (CV) process to determine specific measurements of the user's body and the stresses thereon as their body is put into multiple physical conditions or executes sequences of motion.

  • Publication number: 20200174713
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a technique to efficiently pack a print volume of 3D printers having print jobs with a large number of objects. The technique positions unique objects that adhere to a similar structural pattern more closely when the degree of variation between the objects is small. Thus, while each object is unique, a greater extent of similarity between the objects causes a given group of objects to be positioned more closely to one another in the print area of the 3D printer.

  • Publication number: 20200156321
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a technique to efficiently distribute a large number of printable CAD objects to a group of printers having variable settings and/or parameters. Each CAD object includes metadata specifying a particular set of production parameters (e.g., software settings, post-processing steps, production material, and/or physical location). The technique positions objects with the same set of production parameters metadata in similar print cycles subject to object nesting optimization.

  • Publication number: 20190317116
    Abstract: A system that rapidly detects the presence of a target analyte in a biological test sample, which includes a sensor for measuring a detectable signal generated upon the reaction of a biosensor reagent with a specific target analyte within the sample; a reservoir card that includes the biosensor reagent that further includes living, engineered biological cells, and wherein the reservoir card is configured to interface with a test cartridge base; a test cartridge base configured to accept the reservoir card and to be placed within the testing device, wherein the test cartridge base further includes a reaction chamber adapted to receive both the biosensor reagent and the sample and a fluid displacement mechanism that includes a dispensing plunger, wherein actuation of the dispensing plunger displaces the biosensor reagent in the reservoir into the reaction chamber where the biosensor reagent is mixed with the sample; and a function verification cartridge adapted to be received and recognized by the testing devic

  • Patent number: 4834481
    Abstract: A single mode fiber optic multiplexer/demultiplexer has first and second optical fibers, each having an input and an output end. The first and second optical fibers are single mode fibers each having a core of a predetermined diameter and a cladding about the core of a predetermined diameter. Along a predetermined length two fibers are placed in juxtaposition and the claddings are fused together to form a fiber optic coupler. Previous to being fused, the claddings are reduced by etching. The coupling of the fiber optic device is such that a first light having a first predetermined wavelength and a second light having a second predetermined wavelength enter together on an input of one of the fibers and are substantially split such that substantially only the first light will appear on an output of one of the fibers and substantially only a second light will appear on an output of the other fiber.
