  • Publication number: 20220369044
    Abstract: A hearing aid comprises a sensor configured for detecting a focus of an end user on a real sound source, a microphone assembly configured for converting sounds into electrical signals, a speaker configured for converting the electrical signals into sounds, and a control subsystem configured for modifying the direction and/or distance of a greatest sensitivity of the microphone assembly based on detected focus. A virtual image generation system comprises memory storing a three-dimensional scene, a sensor configured for detecting a focus of the end user on a sound source, a speaker configured for conveying sounds to the end user, and a control subsystem configured for causing the speaker to preferentially convey a sound originating from the sound source in response to detection of the focus, and for rendering image frames of the scene, and a display subsystem configured for sequentially displaying the image frames to the end user.

  • Patent number: 11496991
    Abstract: A method is provided. A notice is received from a mobile device indicating that typing within a texting application has occurred substantially simultaneously as walking has been detected. The notice includes a timestamp of when the typing and the detection of walking occurred. A position of the mobile device is triangulated for the timestamp, and a determination is made as to whether the typing and the detection of walking occurred within a predetermined target area using at least a portion of data calculated from the step of triangulating.

  • Patent number: 11478679
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing a distortion-free pool-surface display beneath a swimmer. In one embodiment, projectors are positioned below a water level at opposite walls of a pool, and are configured to project images to a display surface at the bottom of the pool beneath a swimmer. A camera is used to view images projected by the projectors and to provide corresponding image data to an image correction platform on a graphics processing unit (GPU). The image correction platform identifies distortions in the images, generates image corrections that counter the identified distortions, and applies the corrections to subsequently projected images. The image correction platform also generates image adjustment that cause overlapping portions of the projected images to match seamlessly. The projected images may provide immersive experiences, coaching/training interfaces or other interactive displays.

  • Publication number: 20220331771
    Abstract: One aspect of the invention relates to a method comprising a single-stage conversion of an atmospheric pollutant, such as NO, NO2 and/or SOX in a first stream to one or more mineral acids and/or salts thereof by reacting with nonionic gas phase chlorine dioxide (ClO20), wherein the reaction is carried out in the gas phase. Another aspect of the invention relates to a method comprising first adjusting the atmospheric pollutant concentrations in a first stream to a molar ratio of about 1:1, and then reacting with an aqueous metal hydroxide solution (MOH). Another aspect of the invention relates to an apparatus that can be used to carry out the methods disclosed herein. The methods disclosed herein are unexpectedly efficient and cost effective, and can be applied to a stream comprising high concentration and large volume of atmospheric pollutants.
