  • Publication number: 20190207400
    Abstract: A wireless electronic device is provided which comprises a rechargeable power supply and a power capacity indicator unit. The power capacity indicator unit comprises one or more sensors configured to detect that the wireless electronic device is out of a base charger and is in an idle state for a predetermined idle threshold. The one or more sensors are further configured to detect when a power level of the rechargeable power supply is within at least one predetermined power threshold range. The control unit is configured to activate at least one power status indicator corresponding to the at least one predetermined power threshold range when the wireless electronic device is detected to be out of the base charger and in the idle state for the predetermined idle threshold, and the detection of the power level of the rechargeable power supply is within at least one predetermined power threshold range.

  • Patent number: 10127507
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for providing interactive issue creation and management for use in project management processes. The system provides users with mechanisms for creating fully-featured, easy-to-identify, and highly legible issues, with a visual mechanism for communicating issue information between the parties involved in the project management process, thereby resulting in improved tracking to ensure issues are appropriately addressed and timely resolved, saving time and money.

  • Patent number: 9578114
    Abstract: An external service application discovery process that connects a host with an external application server running a service application allowing a user of a client computing device to work with a file via a web browser. The host brokers the functionality of an external application server and serves as the platform where interactions between the client computing device and the external application server occur. An open interface protocol, which is a shared communication protocol, allows the host to communicate instructions from the client computing device to the external application server. Through the external service application discovery process, the external application server describes functionality provided by the service application to the host.

  • Patent number: 9242768
    Abstract: A tamper-evident closure (10) for a container (20) is provided. The closure (10) comprises a first portion (25) including inner (35) and outer (45) parts, and a second portion (30). The outer part (45) is movable relative to the inner part (35) from a first position in which the outer part (45) is immediately adjacent the second portion (30) to a second position in which there is an empty unobstructed gap (G) therebetween. The inner (35) and outer (45) parts are adapted to become irreversibly locked in the second position so that the outer part (45) cannot be moved back to the first position to close the gap (G). A combination of such a closure (110) with an in-bore filament (100) connectable to a container (120) is also provided.

  • Patent number: 8973777
    Abstract: A beverage can (1) having a base (10) defining a re-entrant bead (17) in which a resilient disc (50) is held captive. The maximum dimension of the disc (50) is designed to be larger than the internal diameter of the re-entrant bead (17) and thus, when the resilient disc (50) is fitted into the re-entrant bead (17), the disc (50) adopts a concave, domed shape. The degree of doming can accommodate any variance between the dimensions of the disc (50) and that of the reformed base (10) of the can (1). One or more drainage ports may be provided on the periphery of the resilient disc (50) so that any liquid trapped between the surfaces of the base (10) and the resilient disc (50) may drain.

  • Publication number: 20140221967
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are devices for minimally invasive vertebral augmentation and restoration of spinal lordosis using a steerable cannula assembly. When deployed, the articulating cannula, including an outer cannula and an inner cannula extending into a central lumen of the outer cannula and coupled to each other at their distal ends, can be manipulated to curve/bend the body of the articulating cannula. This manipulation is used to create a void within the interior body and may also be used to control delivery of a treatment element to the interior body.

  • Publication number: 20060249545
    Abstract: A valve closure for a container, having a body, a valve and a lid. The valve is positioned across the opening of the container and itself has an opening through which the contents of the container may be dispensed. The lid is moveable relative to the body between open and closed positions and is shaped to block the valve opening, when the lid is in its closed position. The lid has a projection, which forms a peripheral seal around the valve opening, when the lid is in its closed position, and within the periphery of the projection, the shape of the lid substantially conforms to the shape of the valve and/or body, to minimise the volume therebetween.

  • Publication number: 20050155599
    Abstract: This invention relates to a self-heating or self-cooling container (1), which uses an exothermic or endothermic re-action to provide or remove heat from the contents of the container. The chemical reaction includes a fluid consistuent (either as a reagent or solvent), held in a reservoir (6), which is added to another reagent in the reaction chamber (5) to initiate the reaction. The container (1) according to the invention proposes a means (8, 91) to control the volume of this fluid constituent added to the reaction chamber (5) depending on the ambient temperature of the container.
