  • Patent number: 10799760
    Abstract: A motion tracking system monitors the motions performed by a user based on motion data received from one or more sensors. The motion tracking system may include a motion tracking device with one or more sensors, a smart device with one or more sensors and/or a server. As the user interacts with the motion tracking system or smart device the motion data generated by one or more sensors is processed by a software application. The software application generates interpreted data based on the motion data and contextual data such as the equipment being used by the user. Feedback is then provided to the user during and/or after the user has performed a motion or a set of motions. The feedback provided to the user may be visual, audio or tactile. The application may be used to monitor a routine in a sporting, fitness, industrial or medical environment, for example.

  • Publication number: 20170055918
    Abstract: A motion monitoring system can detect and identify motions of interest in motion data. The motion monitoring system can identify instances of the motion of interest in the motion data and can train a machine-learned model for identifying or characterizing motions of interest in motion data based on extracted features from the motions of interest. The motion monitoring system can also monitor motion data from a user and can help the user alter the performance of the motions of interest. For example, the motion monitoring system can generate an improvement strategy that helps the user improve their performance of the motion of interest. The motion monitoring system's altering of a user's performance of a motion of interest can be applied to physical therapy, gunfire detection, workplace motion improvement, sports, and driving.

  • Patent number: 5710613
    Abstract: Artist's eyeglasses having a clear section in the lens and a diffused section in the same lens suited for viewing an object to be painted or drawn through the diffused section and seeing that object in its most basic shape, shifting one's gaze away from the object to the painting medium (canvas) and simultaneously shifting one's eyes to the clear section while the basic shape is fresh in the mind, and transferring that basic shape onto canvass. The glasses also have adjustable shading and lighting shields over the frame and temple arms to permit the artist to vary the shading and lighting at the point of perception as best suited for artistic needs and purposes.
