  • Patent number: 10382739
    Abstract: Various embodiments of the present invention relate generally to systems and methods for analyzing and manipulating images and video. In particular, a multi-view interactive digital media representation (MVIDMR) of an object can be generated from live images of an object captured from a camera. After the MVIDMR of the object is generated, a tag can be placed at a location on the object in the MVIDMR. The locations of the tag in the frames of the MVIDMR can vary from frame to frame as the view of the object changes. When the tag is selected, media content can be output which shows details of the object at location where the tag is placed. In one embodiment, the object can be car and tags can be used to link to media content showing details of the car at the locations where the tags are placed.

  • Publication number: 20190245523
    Abstract: An augmented reality system including a source and a contact lens display can be used to project information from the contact lens display onto the retina of the wearer's eye. The source provides energy to the contact lens display and operates at a source frequency. The source includes a source circuit including a conductive coil. The contact lens display includes a resonant circuit including another conductive coil and a capacitive circuit. The resonant circuit receives energy from the conductive coil of the source via a magnetic field inductively coupling the conductive coils. The contact lens display additionally includes a feedback circuit to adjust the capacitance of the capacitive circuit to control a resonant frequency of the resonant circuit. The feedback circuit can control the capacitive circuit to maintain the resonant frequency of the resonant circuit near the source frequency as the wearer's eye blinks.

  • Publication number: 20190244372
    Abstract: Various embodiments of the present invention relate generally to systems and processes for interpolating images of an object. According to particular embodiments, a sequence of images is obtained using a camera which captures the sequence of images along a camera translation. Each image contains at least a portion of overlapping subject matter. A plurality of keypoints is identified on a first image of the sequence of images. Each keypoint from the first image are kept track of to a second image. Using a predetermined algorithm, a plurality of transformations are computed using two randomly sampled keypoint correspondences, each of which includes a keypoint on the first image and a corresponding keypoint on the second image. An optimal subset of transformations is determined from the plurality of transformations based on predetermined criteria, and transformation parameters corresponding to the optimal subset of transformations is calculated and stored for on-the-fly interpolation.

  • Patent number: 10368729
    Abstract: A method of inhibiting a flow of a purging fluid from a tissue visualization device comprises positioning an imaging hood attached to a distal end of a flexible elongate shaft in proximity to a tissue region to be visualized The method also comprises introducing the purging fluid into an inflation member suspended within an open area of the imaging hood. The inflation member includes at least one aperture on a proximal portion of the inflation member. The method also comprises inflating the inflation member to a partially inflated state in which the inflation member is circumferentially separated from an inner surface of the hood to form an annular flow path for the purging fluid from the at least one aperture, between the inner surface of the hood and the inflation member, and into fluid communication with an environment external to the hood.

  • Publication number: 20190238610
    Abstract: A video effects application executes on a client device having an image capture device and receives video data captured by the image capture device. The video effects application extracts information from the captured video data and stores the extracted information as metadata associated with the captured video data. For example, the video effects application identifies objects in the captured video data or identifies optical flow of the captured video data and stores the identified objects or identified optical flow as metadata associated with the captured video data. The video effects application stores information describing modifications to the captured video data in association with the captured video data. When the captured video data is presented, the captured video data, associated metadata, and information describing the modifications is communicated to a renderer, which uses the metadata to perform the identified modifications to the captured video data when presenting the captured video data.

  • Publication number: 20190216625
    Abstract: A tissue manipulation system comprises a reconfigurable hood structure with a distal end. The structure has a low profile delivery configuration and an expanded deployed configuration which defines an open area bounded at least in part by the structure and by an interface surface extending across the hood structure distal end. The open area is in fluid communication with an environment external to the hood structure. The system also includes a catheter in communication with the open area such that introduction of a fluid through the catheter purges the open area of bodily fluid. The interface surface is slanted relative to the catheter longitudinal axis when the hood structure is in the expanded deployed configuration. The system also includes an imaging element positioned on the hood structure such that the open area is visualized through the fluid by the element.
