  • Publication number: 20170316571
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method and a device for estimating a full shape of a lens of an eye from measurements of the lens taken in-vivo by optical imaging techniques, the measurements comprising visible portions of the lens, the method comprises defining non-visible portions of the lens parting from the in-vivo measurements and using a geometrical model of a lens previously built from ex-vivo measurements. The full shape parameters of the crystalline lens can be estimated in the present invention from optical imaging techniques to improve the estimation of the IOL position and thus the IOL power selection.

  • Patent number: 9712467
    Abstract: Iterative techniques for successfully sending large electronic messages are provided. In one aspect, a method of sending an electronic message is provided. The method includes the steps of: transmitting the electronic message from a sender to a recipient, wherein a size of the electronic message exceeds an electronic message size limit for the recipient; receiving a message from the recipient that the size of the electronic message exceeds the electronic message size limit for the recipient; automatically dividing the electronic message into at least two segments; and transmitting the at least two segments to the recipient. Additionally, the recipient's preferences for receiving large electronic messages from the sender may also be taken into account.

  • Publication number: 20170124698
    Abstract: Image processing for productivity applications is provided. An image may be received by a computing device. The computing device may detect the edges comprising the received image and adjust the image based on a skew state of the detected edges. The computing device may then process the adjusted image to correct imbalances. The computing device may then assign an image classification to the processed image. The computing device may then adjust the processed image based on the assigned image classification.

  • Patent number: 9583962
    Abstract: A method for controlling a charging process of a battery-operated device includes connecting the battery-operated device to a charger device to start the charging process, sending a first signal from the battery-operated device to the charger device in response to a charge level of a battery in the battery-operated device being below a first threshold, continuing the charging process until the charge level of the battery is above a second threshold, and sending a second signal from the battery-operated device to the charger device to stop the charging process in response to the charge level of the battery being above the second threshold.

  • Publication number: 20160252335
    Abstract: An ammunition projectile has a plurality of distinctive marks arranged in at least one circular row around the projectile body, with the row of marks extending perpendicular to its longitudinal axis. The marks are illuminated by a strobe flash and successive images are captured by an electronic imager as the projectile exits the barrel of a weapon. A computer, coupled to the imager, processes the electron is signals to determine projectile yaw, spin and muzzle velocity.

  • Patent number: 9375459
    Abstract: The present invention comprises cyclic peptides bearing antitumor and antiangiogenic properties, as well as their corresponding pharmaceutically-suitable salts and also pharmaceutical compositions containing it. These cyclic peptides are used to prepare medicines for human and/or veterinary therapeutics, and additionally in diagnosis. These compounds can be used to detect, monitor and/or control a range of cellular proliferation-related disorders, such as oncological diseases and undesired angiogenesis. Moreover, they can be included as part of controlled release systems, and used more precisely in the field of nanobiotechnology, either because of their self-assembly capacity or as part of other systems.

  • Patent number: 9302197
    Abstract: In one aspect of the present invention, a toy arrangement involving a flickering, animated and/or luminescent toy object will be described. The toy arrangement includes a toy object having a light sensitive layer. A light source is arranged to illuminate the light sensitive layer with a pattern revealing light. The light sensitive layer is arranged to emit colored light in response to exposure to the pattern revealing light. In some implementations, the light source is arranged to vary the intensity of the pattern revealing light, which in turn can cause the colored light emitted from the toy object to fade, brighten and flicker. The toy arrangement may also include a speaker that emits sounds that are synchronized with changes in the colored light.

  • Patent number: 9217627
    Abstract: A practice ammunition projectile has a projectile head with one or more sheets of plastic material, each having a plurality of frangible “bubble shaped” compartments containing liquid chemical components for optical and/or Infrared marking of a target upon impact. The sheets are preferably flexible sheets in the nature of a “bubble wrap” of the type used as padding for packaging. These so-called “matrix packages” are installed adjacent the inner surface of the shell forming the projectile head and provide stability when the compartments break up upon setback when the projectile is fired from a weapon.
