  • Patent number: 11069094
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and non-transitory computer readable storage media are disclosed for rendering makeup products on a user's face within an augmented reality environment in real-time. For example, the disclosed system can use blend a base makeup color of a selected makeup product with extracted luminance frequencies of a video stream. The disclosed system can then convert the blended makeup color to LAB color space and apply one or more shader models to the lightness of the color based on a material of the selected makeup product. The disclosed system can also apply additional operations for smoothing the skin of the user and matching the makeup product to a skin tone of the user. The disclosed system can then display the makeup product and any additional changes in an augmented reality environment in the video stream.

  • Patent number: 10852321
    Abstract: A test head for a semiconductor device handler includes a plunger; and a funnel insert attached to the plunger via a funnel insert spring, the funnel insert having a channel extending axially therethrough, and the funnel insert including a plurality of sloped inner walls that are sloped outwardly in a distal direction of the funnel insert and configured to contact upper edges of a semiconductor device to center the semiconductor device in the funnel insert. The plunger includes a projecting portion that extends through the channel of the funnel insert. When the spring is in an uncompressed state, a distal end of the funnel insert extends past a distal end of the projecting portion of the plunger.

  • Patent number: 10594892
    Abstract: This disclosure relates generally to communicating video content and other data over networks. An example apparatus includes a transmitter for communicating data via a serial link with a receiver. The transmitter includes an input, an output interface to the serial link, and translation circuitry. The input includes multiple input data lanes and a clock lane, and the input is configured to concurrently receive data on the multiple input data lanes aligned with a clock signal received on the clock lane according to a multi-lane communication protocol. The output interface is a clock-less interface and includes a number of output data lanes less than a number of the multiple input data lanes. The translation circuitry translates the data received according to the multi-lane communication protocol to a serial link communication protocol for transmission on the serial link.

  • Publication number: 20190143078
    Abstract: A catheter may include a tubular member having a lumen and an outer surface, a sleeve configured to be positioned in the lumen in a retracted configuration and to evert over at least a portion of the outer surface in an everted configuration, and a filament configured to retract the sleeve into the retracted configuration. The catheter may include an aperture proximal of a distal end, where the filament extends through the aperture from the lumen. A pull member may be on a distal end of the filament. The filament may be looped, coiled, and/or bunched in the catheter when the sleeve is in the retracted configuration. A shuttle may be attached to a distal end of the sleeve, where the shuttle includes a tubular member configured to maintain patency of the sleeve, and the filament engages the shuttle to retract the sleeve into the lumen.

  • Patent number: 9635223
    Abstract: A telescope system may facilitate the capture of images of light, and may have a housing, a primary mirror, a Schmidt corrector plate, and a lens group. The housing may have a mirror end and an aperture end with an entrance aperture that receives the light. The primary mirror may be positioned proximate the mirror end, and may have a spherical shape. The Schmidt corrector plate may be positioned proximate the entrance aperture to direct the light toward the primary mirror in a manner that substantially compensates for the spherical shape. The lens group may include multiple lenses, one or more of which may be positioned within the housing proximate the aperture end such that the light is directed through the lens group by the primary mirror. The lens group may focus the light at a focal location further than the Schmidt corrector plate from the primary mirror.

  • Patent number: 9533936
    Abstract: An esterified propoxylated glycerin process is improved by the incorporation of a vacuum distillation step whereby unreacted fatty acids are removed in a form suitable for direct reuse in a further esterification. The esterified propoxylated glycerin produced is low in color and has a low content of free fatty acid, making it suitable for use as a reduced calorie fat substitute in various food products.

  • Patent number: 8705546
    Abstract: A redundancy switch includes at least three data ports and a control input. Each data port includes a data input and a data output. The redundancy switch operates in one of at least three states. In a first state, a first data port is communicatively coupled with a second data port. In a second state, the first data port is communicatively coupled with a third data port. In a third state, the second data port is communicatively coupled with the third data port. The state of the redundancy switch can be controlled based on a signal received at the control input. The redundancy switch can further include transconductance switching elements that convert a voltage input to a current output.
