  • Publication number: 20210128903
    Abstract: A centrifugal blood pump includes a housing having a pumping chamber, an inlet having an inlet axis, and an outlet having an outlet axis. The inlet and the outlet are in fluid communication with the pumping chamber. The pump further includes an impeller rotatably disposed within the pumping chamber, and a strut connected to the housing at the inlet. The strut is connected to the housing at a circumferential position about the inlet axis such that a major axis of the strut and the outlet axis define a predetermined angle in a cross-sectional plane perpendicular to the inlet axis. The circumferential position of the strut relative the outlet axis reduces or eliminates damage to blood flowing around the strut.

  • Publication number: 20200302480
    Abstract: A computing system is configured to receive location data from a wireless device of a user. Upon receiving a search request from the wireless device, the computing system utilizes the location data to determine one or more likely travel routes of the user of the wireless device. In response to the search request, the computing system may select one or more establishments based on the likely travel routes and location data associated with the one or more establishments. The computing system may further transmit to the wireless device information associated with the selected one or more establishments.

  • Patent number: 10733629
    Abstract: A computing system is configured to receive location data from a first wireless device of a first user. The system determines one or more coordinates associated with an establishment. The system determines that the first user is located at the establishment using the location data and the coordinates associated with the establishment. The system receives, from a second wireless device of a second user, a request for a location of the first user. The system determines that that the second user has permission to obtain the location of the first user. The system then transmits, to the second wireless device, information associated with the establishment where the first user is determined to be located.

  • Publication number: 20200242471
    Abstract: An intelligent monitoring device including a processor and an accelerometer and/or a device that includes at least one processor and at least one image sensor. The intelligent monitoring device is configured to observe at least one machine. The intelligent monitoring device is further configured to utilize its processor, or the processor of a coupled system, to recognize actions carried out on or by the at least one machine and infer the state of the machine. The intelligent monitoring device or the coupled system is further configured to provide alerts or help respond to queries about the status of the at least one machine. For example, the intelligent monitoring camera will infer the state of a washing machine based on its observations and provide an alert (optionally only to the user recognized to have loaded the washer) when the washing machine is ready to be unloaded.

  • Publication number: 20200096802
    Abstract: The inventive devices may be produced in various form factors including single display element form factors, dual element form factors, or form factors that incorporate one or more flexible panels instead of hinged flat panels. The devices also include sensors to determine the device configuration. The devices may be placed into various configurations including an upright laptop, stand, tent, small tablet, large tablet, dual monitor display, or book configuration. These devices may change display modes based on the current device configuration, the current task being performed on the device, and/or spatial context as determined by any one of various environmental and configuration sensors. Different display modes include normal, presentation, sharing, augmented reality, tracing, scanning, unobstructed, ambient light, 2.5D/3D modes. Applications can be written that take specific advantage of the inventive display elements, display modes, device form factors, and device configurations.

    Abstract: A computing system is configured to receive location data from a first wireless device of a first user. The system determines one or more coordinates associated with an establishment. The system determines that the first user is located at the establishment using the location data and the coordinates associated with the establishment. The system receives, from a second wireless device of a second user, a request for a location of the first user. The system determines that that the second user has permission to obtain the location of the first user. The system then transmits, to the second wireless device, information associated with the establishment where the first user is determined to be located.

  • Patent number: 10546324
    Abstract: Methods and systems that record the location of a user and transmit targeted content to a user based upon their current and past location information. A network is configured to include a server programmed with a database of targeted content, a database of location information, a database of user information, a database searching algorithm, and a wireless communication system capable of communicating with the user's mobile device. The location of the mobile device is ascertained and recorded. The location information is analyzed to determine the routes taken by the user, businesses visited by the user, and other behaviors of the user. Targeted content is sent to the mobile device of the user or exposure to physical content is tracked. Whether the user visits the physical locations associated with the content is monitored. Detailed conversion tracking is provided to producers of targeted content and business owners.

  • Patent number: 10520782
    Abstract: The display includes a transparent display (TD) element or layer such as at least one Transparent Organic Light Emitting Diode (TOLED) element and at least one active shutter (AS) element or layer such as a liquid crystal shutter. The AS may be opaque or transparent. The TD may be transparent or display or emit light in mixtures of color. Black may be displayed by a TD pixel by having the TD be transparent and turning an AS opaque. Each display is composed of elements that can have many states. The states can be used to create different display modes. Devices with these displays can have many form factors and configurations. These devices may change display modes based on spatial context as determined by any one of various environmental and configuration sensors.

  • Publication number: 20190266641
    Abstract: Methods and systems that record the location of a user and transmit targeted content to a user based upon their current and past location information. A network is configured to include a server programmed with a database of targeted content, a database of location information, a database of user information, a database searching algorithm, and a wireless communication system capable of communicating with the user's mobile device. The location of the mobile device is ascertained and recorded. The location information is analyzed to determine the routes taken by the user, businesses visited by the user, and other behaviors of the user. Targeted content is sent to the mobile device of the user or exposure to physical content is tracked. Whether the user visits the physical locations associated with the content is monitored. Detailed conversion tracking is provided to producers of targeted content and business owners.

  • Patent number: 9277366
    Abstract: In general, the invention relates to methods and systems that record the location of a user and determine the corresponding physical named location (e.g. business location) visited by the user. A network includes a server programmed with a database of location information, a database of user information, payment account information, and a wireless communication system capable of communicating with the user's mobile device. The location of the mobile device is ascertained and recorded. The system determines the physical named location (e.g. business location) visited by the user. Bluetooth, wireless transceivers are placed throughout the business location. The mobile device connects to the wireless transceivers with the best signal (e.g., the closest one), or is scanned by a wireless scanner, and the user's location in the store is determined. Targeted content based upon the location of the user in the store is sent to the user.
