  • Patent number: 10547197
    Abstract: In one embodiment, the wireless charger can be light-weight, thin, and can be hidden and/or integrated inside of handbags, backpacks, jackets, and other accessories. The wireless charger can also be used as a standalone product. The wireless charger charges phones using wireless power transmission and incorporates a battery which can be recharged through a power adapter. When properly integrated, the wireless charger according to embodiments described herein can be integrated into such apparel, accessories, or other products without altering or affecting the appearance of the product. For example, the wireless charger may be seamlessly incorporated into most any apparel and accessories from purses to apparel to jackets if the product has a pocket. Because various aspects of the wireless charger are adaptable, it can be easily customized to meet customer needs.

  • Patent number: 9989451
    Abstract: A method for analyzing porosity of a particle and a medium disposed in the porosity of the particle. A video-holographic microscope is provided to analyze interference patterns produced by providing a laser source to output a collimated beam, scattering the collimated beam off a particle and interacting with an unscattered beam to generate the interference pattern for analyzation to determine the refractive index of the particle and a medium disposed in the porosity of the particle to measure porosity and the medium.

  • Patent number: 9206471
    Abstract: The invention provides micron and sub-micron scale particles designed to recognize and selectively interact with each other by exploiting the recognition and specificity enabled by DNA-sequence-encoded coatings. Such materials possess sufficient information coded in their chemical and physical interactions to self assemble and self replicate. The invention further provides methods of using such materials to create self replicating and organizing materials. Replicated copies are permanently linked and then thermally detached, freeing them to act as templates for further growth. This new class of condensed matter systems, provides means to design and control the structure and function of materials and machines from the microscopic to life-size. In another aspect of the invention, depletion type forces and depletion zones can be utilized in the implementation of the self assembly and self replication of materials, including without limitation colloidal particles.

  • Publication number: 20120124472
    Abstract: The invention is directed to a method, computer system, and computer program for providing a user feedback regarding available mouse gestures. Each of the mouse gestures comprises a predetermined sequence of one or more mouse movements, and corresponds to a predetermined action or command. After the gesture is initiated, the feedback is provided to the user when a predetermined timer expires since the user initiated the gesture or the last mouse movement. This allows for feedback to be provided to users who get lost mid-gesture, without providing unnecessary feedback to a more experienced user who is able to quickly perform the gesture. The feedback can instruct the user as to each available gesture, along with the corresponding action or command.

  • Patent number: 7014799
    Abstract: A low-cost, efficient method of preparing hierarchically ordered structures by filling a minimold with a microsphere-containing latex suspension, forming an close-packed array of microspheres within the minimold and filling void space in the array with a self-assembling mixture of hydrolyzed inorganic species and amphiphilic block copolymers. A macroporous and mesoporous material can be produced by subsequent thermal removal of the microspheres and copolymers.

  • Patent number: 6716378
    Abstract: A low-cost, efficient method of preparing hierarchically ordered structures by filling a mold with a self-assembling mixture of hydrolyzed inorganic species and amphiphilic block copolymers and applying pressure to the mixture. Polymerization of the inorganic species within the mixture results in a mesoscopically structured material having molded features. A mesoporous material can be produced by subsequent thermal removal of the copolymers.
