  • Patent number: 10986894
    Abstract: A material that includes at least one layer made of an auxetic structure and articles of footwear having soles comprising the materials. When the material is under tension, it expands in both the direction under tension and in the direction orthogonal to the direction under tension. The articles of footwear have soles that have at least one layer made of a material that has a pattern of apertures to provide the auxetic structure. The apertures are surrounded by sole portions that can rotate or pivot to change the size of the apertures. An outer covering can be mated with an outsole structure formed by the auxetic structure. The outer covering includes features that mate with the apertures in the outsole structure. The outer covering is elastic and can stretch to accommodate expansion of the auxetic structure.

  • Publication number: 20210031092
    Abstract: A game board for playing a bag toss game and methods for playing and scoring the same are provided. A playing surface includes a hole located at a distal half thereof and sized to receive a bag tossed therethrough. A leg located at a distal half of the game board permits angling the playing surface relative to a ground surface. A scoring indicator is selectively attachable to a number of attachment mechanism provided at a series of locations along the playing surface. Scoring lines are provided at the game board in association with the attachment mechanism so that the scoring indicator may be secured adjacent to one of the scoring lines to indicate a current score of the bag toss game.
