  • Patent number: 10939175
    Abstract: A real-time video exploration (RVE) system that allows users to pause a pre-recorded video (e.g., a movie) and change viewing positions and angles of one or more scenes. The RVE system may also allow users to select, manipulate, and modify objects within one or more scenes. The RVE system may render new video of the scenes and stream the new video to the user's client device. Using the RVE system, a user may create modified versions of one or more scenes to replace original scenes in a video to thus create a modified version of the video. The RVE system may allow the user to record the modified version of the video, and may allow the user to share the modified version of the video with other viewers.

  • Patent number: 10631775
    Abstract: Axial stress or similar properties in a stressed tendon or ligament are measured by mechanical excitation of a shear wave in the tendon or ligament measured using ultrasonic displacement techniques at least two different longitudinal positions to derive a shear wave propagation speed. This shear wave propagation speed may be equated to an axial stress on the tissue using a model. Rapidly repeated measurements allow dynamic axial stress measurements to be obtained for clinical study.

  • Patent number: 10375434
    Abstract: A real-time video targeting (RVT) system may leverage network-based computation resources and services, available 2D or 3D model data, and available viewer information to dynamically personalize content of, or add personalized content to, video for particular viewers or viewer groups. When playing back pre-recorded video to viewers, at least some objects or other content in at least some of the scenes of the video may be replaced with objects or content targeted at particular viewers or groups according to profiles or preferences of the viewers or groups. Since the video is being rendered and streamed to different viewers or groups in real-time by the network-based computation resources and services, any given scene of a video may be modified and viewed in many different ways by different viewers or groups based on the particular viewers' or groups' profiles.

  • Publication number: 20150040329
    Abstract: A dock leveler includes an inflatable bellows to which pressurized air is selectively coupled. The inflatable bellows is arranged to raise and lower a distal portion of a hinged ramp in response to the degree to which the inflatable bellows is inflated with compressed air. A relief valve is coupled to the inflatable bellows, where the relief valve is arranged to selectively release compressed air from the inflatable bellows in response to an operator action that is (for example) intended to lower the ramp. An exhaust manifold is arranged to receive the selectively released air from the relief valve and to directionally exhaust a focused stream of compressed air underneath the hinged ramp so that the compressed air is directed to move debris towards the distal portion of the hinged ramp to facilitate cleaning of the loading dock pit that lies underneath the hinged ramp.

  • Publication number: 20150013083
    Abstract: A dock leveler includes an inflatable bellows to which pressurized air is selectively coupled. The inflatable bellows is arranged to raise and lower a distal portion of a loading dock ramp in response to the degree to which the inflatable bellows is inflated with compressed air. A control valve is coupled to the inflatable bellows, where the control valve is arranged to selectively release compressed air from the inflatable bellows in response to an operator action that is (for example) intended to lower the ramp. An exhaust manifold is arranged to receive the selectively released air from the control valve and to directionally exhaust a focused stream of compressed air underneath the ramp so that the compressed air is directed to move debris towards the distal portion of the ramp to facilitate cleaning of the loading dock pit that lies underneath the ramp. A solar power subsystem stores solar energy to power a compressor that provides the compressed air.
