  • Publication number: 20220370890
    Abstract: An electronic gaming machine and a method are provided which generates outcome presentations from a Class 2 or a central determination game outcome. A database stores RNG seeds that correspond to various presentations. To generate the outcome presentations, the RNG seeds are retrieved from the database and random numbers are generated from the RNG seeds. These random numbers are then used to generate the outcome presentations for the Class 2 or central determination game outcome. The RNG seeds may be stored as a series of RNG seeds which may be individually accessed to eliminate certain outcomes or sort certain outcomes prior to presentation.

  • Publication number: 20220296517
    Abstract: The disclosure features target cell delivery lipid nanoparticle (LNP) compositions that allow for enhanced delivery of agents, e.g., nucleic acids, such as therapeutic and/or prophylactic RNAs, to target cells, in particular liver cells and/or splenic cells. The LNPs comprise an effective amount of a target cell delivery potentiating lipid such that delivery of an agent by a target cell target cell delivery LNP is enhanced as compared to an LNP lacking the target cell delivery potentiating agent. Methods of using the target cell target cell delivery LNPs for delivery of agents, e.g., nucleic acid delivery, for protein expression, and for modulating target cell activity are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20220106259
    Abstract: The disclosure features novel lipids and compositions involving the same. Lipid nanoparticles (e.g., empty LNPs or loaded LNPs) include a novel lipid as well as additional lipids such as phospholipids, structural lipids, and PEG lipids. Lipid nanoparticles (e.g., empty LNPs or loaded LNPs) further including therapeutic and/or prophylactics such as RNA are useful in the delivery of therapeutic and/or prophylactics to mammalian cells or organs to, for example, regulate polypeptide, protein, or gene expression.

  • Publication number: 20210299556
    Abstract: A system includes a display device including a display surface configured to display a graphic and including an opening. The system also includes a peripheral device mounted within the opening of the display surface, and a processor configured to execute instructions stored in a memory device, which when executed, cause the processor to at least: display the graphic on the display surface of the display device adjacent to the peripheral device, whereby the graphic is displayed at least partially in association with the peripheral device.

  • Patent number: 11106953
    Abstract: Apparatuses and embodiments related to compensated laser cutting of labels. A computer system receives an image of a label, and rasterizes the image. The computer system determines how much of each type of printer ink of a label printer to deposit at each pixel location of the image. The computer system determines which pixels intersect a cut line, and determines the characteristics of the ink of the pixels, such as the quantity or thickness of the ink at the pixel locations. The computer system determines laser data including power, cut speed, and/or frequency of a laser that is tuned to accurately cut through the ink that forms the image, the material(s) of the label, and the adhesive that removably adheres the label to base material(s), but to not excessively damage the base material(s). A laser cutting system uses the laser data to control a laser.

  • Publication number: 20200257945
    Abstract: Apparatuses and embodiments related to compensated laser cutting of labels. A computer system receives an image of a label, and rasterizes the image. The computer system determines how much of each type of printer ink of a label printer to deposit at each pixel location of the image. The computer system determines which pixels intersect a cut line, and determines the characteristics of the ink of the pixels, such as the quantity or thickness of the ink at the pixel locations. The computer system determines laser data including power, cut speed, and/or frequency of a laser that is tuned to accurately cut through the ink that forms the image, the material(s) of the label, and the adhesive that removably adheres the label to base material(s), but to not excessively damage the base material(s). A laser cutting system uses the laser data to control a laser.

  • Patent number: 10305876
    Abstract: Various technologies described herein pertain to sharing Wi-Fi credentials based upon relationships in a computer-implemented social network. At least one server computing device of a Wi-Fi credential sharing service receives an identifier from a mobile device and credentials for a Wi-Fi network from the mobile device. The identifier identifies a user of the mobile device. Moreover, the credentials for the Wi-Fi network are desirably shared by the user. Further, contacts of the user are retrieved from the social network. The credentials for the Wi-Fi network are retained in respective accounts of the contacts of the user from the social network. Further, an account of a contact includes credentials for Wi-Fi networks shared with the contact.
