  • Patent number: 8902225
    Abstract: A system, and method for use thereof, for image manipulation. The system may generate an original image in a three dimensional coordinate system. A sensing system may sense a user interaction with the image. The sensed user interaction may be correlated with the three dimensional coordinate system. The correlated user interaction may be used to project an updated image, where the updated image may be a distorted version of the original image. The image distortion may be in the form of a twisting, bending, cutting, displacement, or squeezing. The system may be used for interconnecting or communicating between two or more components connected to an interconnection medium (e.g., a bus) within a single computer or digital data processing system.

  • Patent number: 8893232
    Abstract: A media monitoring system that allows a monitoring device to control the media content that can be downloaded by a monitored device. The monitoring device reviews requests for media content from the monitored device and makes a decision whether to allow the monitored device access to the media content. Authorization may occur interactively or automatically using media settings associated with the monitored device. The monitored device is prevented from accessing media content until the media content is authorized. The media monitoring system may operate in a wired and/or wireless network.

  • Patent number: 8384516
    Abstract: Conventional techniques for logging and using a user's signature are insecure and inflexible. A system and method are provided which: i) translate a user's first signature, such as a user's voice signature, into a user's second signature, such as a radio frequency identifier signature; and ii) deploy the user's second signature. By translating the user's first signature into the user's second signature and deploying the user's second signature, the provided technique assures the authenticity of the user. Furthermore, the provided system and method enable additional authentication factors, such as a user's personal identification number, to be used with the user's first and second signatures in multiple combinations and sequences to assure the authenticity of the user. As such, the invention provides a security layer offering added security and added flexibility previously unavailable, and which may be applied in a variety of contexts, such as a user device or a retail transaction.
