  • Publication number: 20230300538
    Abstract: An interactive system can utilize microtechnology (e.g., a micro-electromechanical system (MEMS)), such as miniaturized microphone (e.g., a bone-conducting microphone), audio output device, microprocessor, and signal conversion and propagation means to create a personal area network (PAN) for a user. The system can include a voice input device (e.g., worn on one or more teeth of the user) that outputs a near-field magnetic induction (NFMI) signal based on a whisper input by the user. The NFMI signal is either detected by the user's mobile device, or converted into a wireless signal (e.g., a Bluetooth RF signal) detectable by the user's mobile device, for receiving voice commands (e.g., to provide personal assistant services) via a designated application running on the mobile device.

  • Publication number: 20230299328
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to rechargeable battery packs and or rechargeable battery modules consisting of electrochemical cells in general and more specifically to lithium metal anode secondary electrochemical cells and the supporting mechanical structure of such packs or modules which apply and maintain a high and uniform normal compression pressure to the face of the interconnected cells of said battery packs, modules or individual cells, in order to suppress dendrite formation during charge and maintain a low cell impedance during charge and discharge. This is achieved with the use of a compression assembly having a compressible sheet with desired properties.

  • Publication number: 20230256406
    Abstract: A reactor and method for the conversion of hydrocarbon gases utilizes a reactor (12, 312, 412, 512, 612, 712) having a unique feed assembly with an original vortex combustion chamber (40, 340, 436, 536, 636, 736), a diverging conduit (48, 348, 448, 548, 648, 748), and a cylindrical reactor chamber (40, 340, 436, 536, 636, 736). This design creates a compact combustion zone and an inwardly swirling fluid flow pattern of the feed gases to form a swirling gas mixture that passes through a diverging conduit (48, 348, 448, 548, 648, 748). The feed streams can be introduced into the reactor at any angle (perpendicular, axial, or something between, or a combination of the above forms) with swirling flow components. This provides conditions suitable for efficient cracking of hydrocarbons, such as ethane, to form olefins.

  • Publication number: 20230252019
    Abstract: A method executed by a computing device includes determining whether a set of words are included in a word set. When the set of words are in the word set, the method further includes determining a set of identigens for each word of the word set to produce sets of identigens, where a set of identigens of the sets of identigens represents one or more different meanings of a word of the word set. The method further includes interpreting, using identigen pairing rules, the sets of identigens to produce an entigen set. The method further includes assigning a single new entigen to represent the entigen set, where the single new entigen represents a most likely meaning interpretation of the word set.

  • Publication number: 20230233867
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein relate to implantable medical devices (IMDs) and methods for use therewith. Such a method includes using an accelerometer of an IMD (e.g., a leadless pacemaker) to produce one or more accelerometer outputs indicative of the orientation of the IMD. The method can also include the IMD using an accelerometer to identify when the orientation of the IMD is such that the IMD will likely be able to successfully communicate with another IMD via one or more communication pulses sent from the IMD to the other IMD. The method also includes the IMD sending of the one or more communication pulses, that are used to communicate with the other IMD, when the orientation of the IMD is such that the IMD will likely be able to successfully communicate with the other IMD via one or more communication pulses sent from the IMD to the other IMD.
