  • Publication number: 20170190475
    Abstract: A storage bag is provided with visually distinct features that facilitate opening and closing of the bag. The visually distinct features result in the bag having an asymmetric appearance about one or more imaginary lines along the bag. The visually distinct features and resulting asymmetries provide a visual cue for a user as to how the bag should be grasped when being opened. The visually distinct features, as well as other features of the bag, may also facilitate manufacturing of the bag.

  • Publication number: 20170144801
    Abstract: A storage bag includes first and second side surfaces that form an interior of the bag with an opening to the interior. A first closure profile connected to the first side surface and positioned adjacent to the opening has a top edge and includes an interlocking member that extends between first and second sides of the first closure profile forms a lip between the interlocking member and the top edge. A second closure profile connected to the second side surface and positioned adjacent to the opening of the bag has a top edge and includes an interlocking member. A first portion of the lip of the second closure profile smoothly transitions into a third portion of the lip of the second closure profile, and the third portion of the lip of the second closure profile smoothly transitions into a second portion of the lip of the second closure profile.

  • Patent number: 9646074
    Abstract: Data clustering is provided according to a dynamical framework based on quantum mechanical time evolution of states corresponding to data points. To expedite computations, we can approximate the time-dependent Hamiltonian formalism by a truncated calculation within a set of Gaussian wave-functions (coherent states) centered around the original points. This allows for analytic evaluation of the time evolution of all such states, opening up the possibility of exploration of relationships among data-points through observation of varying dynamical-distances among points and convergence of points into clusters. This formalism may be further supplemented by preprocessing, such as dimensional reduction through singular value decomposition and/or feature filtering.

  • Patent number: 9255673
    Abstract: A light-emitting diode (LED) bulb includes a reflector, a plurality of LEDs disposed within a recess of the reflector, a thermally conductive liquid disposed within the recess, and an adjustment mechanism to move the LEDs from a first position to a second position, with respect to the reflector. The thermally conductive liquid may transfer heat generated by the LEDs to the reflector, and the reflector may dissipate heat transferred by the thermally conductive liquid to the surrounding environment. The reflector may also reflect light from the LEDs to produce a first light-distribution profile, having a respective first beam angle, when the LEDs are in the first position, and to produce a second light-distribution profile, having a respective second beam angle, when the LEDs are in the second position.

  • Publication number: 20150260353
    Abstract: An LED bulb includes a base and a shell connected to the base. The shell is filled with a thermally conductive liquid for cooling the bulb. A plurality of LEDs is disposed within the shell. A first set of LEDs of the plurality of LEDs is positioned a first distance with respect to the center of a convex portion of the shell, and at a first angle with respect to a centerline of the LED bulb. A second set of LEDs of the plurality of LEDs is positioned a second distance with respect to the center of the convex portion of the shell, and at a second angle with respect to a centerline of the LED bulb. The first distance, first angle, second distance, and second angle are selected such that the LED bulb has a light-distribution profile that varies less than 20 percent in light intensity over 0 degrees to 135 degrees as measured from an axis from the center of the shell through an apex of the shell.

  • Patent number: 9114914
    Abstract: A storage bag has first and second closure profiles that include interlocking members configured to seal an opening of the bag. A textured area is provided on the first closure profile adjacent to the interlocking member and adjacent to an end of the first closure profile. The textured area provides a visual cue to indicate that the process of sealing the interlocking members should begin at the end of the first closure profile and move towards a center of the bag.

  • Publication number: 20150046457
    Abstract: In the present work, quantum clustering is extended to provide a dynamical approach for data clustering using a time-dependent Schrödinger equation. To expedite computations, we can approximate the time-dependent Hamiltonian formalism by a truncated calculation within a set of Gaussian wave-functions (coherent states) centered around the original points. This allows for analytic evaluation of the time evolution of all such states, opening up the possibility of exploration of relationships among data points through observation of varying dynamical-distances among points and convergence of points into clusters. This formalism may be further supplemented by preprocessing, such as dimensional reduction through singular value decomposition and/or feature filtering. Additionally, the parameters of the analysis can be modified in order to improve the efficiency of the dynamic quantum clustering processes.

  • Publication number: 20150023029
    Abstract: An LED bulb has a base, a shell connected to the base, and a thermally conductive liquid held within the shell. The LED bulb has a plurality of LEDs mounted on LED mounting surfaces disposed within the shell. The LED mounting surfaces face different radial directions, and the LED mounting surfaces are configured to facilitate a passive convective flow of the thermally conductive liquid within the LED bulb to transfer heat from the LEDs to the shell when the LED bulb is oriented in at least three different orientations. In a first orientation, the shell is disposed vertically above the base. In a second orientation, the shell is disposed on the same horizontal plane as the base. In a third orientation, the shell is disposed vertically below the base.
