  • Publication number: 20180033283
    Abstract: A method and apparatus to facilitate learning while moving, efficient multitasking involving movement while the user processes or responds to different stimuli. The stimuli may include but are not limited to information related to education or entertainment or feedback concerning the user's movement. More specifically this movement may be related to coordination, exercise or physiotherapy. The methods and apparatuses of the disclosure involve the user conducting movement, while simultaneously processing with the aid of an output device, movement device and sensor relays. In this disclosure sensors monitoring a user's performance on an output device may alter the parameters of a movement device's functionality, or vice versa. In some embodiments sensor relays may be used to create a perimeter for an area where a user can exercise while using an output device without the aid of a movement device. In other embodiments an observer can adjust the devices' set points.

  • Publication number: 20180033321
    Abstract: The present disclosure contains embodiments of an apparatus, system and method designed to facilitate learning or efficient multitasking involving movement while one or more user's or users' movement devices process or respond to different stimuli to facilitate users moving while learning, working, or participating in a simulation. In some embodiments this may be accomplished with the aid of a circular treadmill, spherical walkway, or combinable modular trackpads that may be linked to allow a user to lay the apparatus in a path suited for a plurality of environments. The embodiments of the disclosure involve the user moving while processing information (via: learning; creating through typing, moving, talking; or being entertained) and receiving feedback, assistance related to that movement, processing, or any combination thereof while combining the motion of the movement device with the feedback loop sent from sensor relays a user may receive an optimal experience for learning while moving.

  • Publication number: 20170364599
    Abstract: There is provided a device and a method to facilitate enhanced communication between social entities utilizing metadata tags, which may be hashtags. According the features of the device and the method, users may select to follow other users and hashtags in order to see posts related to those hashtags from users they follow on their timeline or their following tab and communicate further with their followers or the poster using enabled functions such as creating and viewing clips related to said posts, sending and receiving wires in relation to a particular post or creating emoji streams and sharing publically or amongst selected friends. Users may tag one another to posts, send direct or reply wires or engage with one another across this social networking platform in any number of ways utilizing enhanced potential of social entities such as hashtags, which have gone previously untapped. This redefined computing architecture allows for quicker processing and more efficient and use of computing resources.

  • Patent number: 8908926
    Abstract: A method of 3D object delineation from 3D seismic data comprising the steps of, providing 3D seismic data; processing the data based on at least one characteristic whereby said characteristic is extracted from the data and compared with at least one reference characteristic and delineated based on the comparison, and defining a geological element based on the delineation. The characteristics may be adjusted. Data can be processed based on one characteristic then processed based on a second characteristic or data is processed based on two characteristics substantially simultaneously. Data may be processed n times producing n delineations from which the geological element is defined. An algorithm is provided for processing the data which may shift an evolving shape description of an object between explicit and implicit representations, where each shift applies a transformation to the object. Multiple sources of data may be utilized simultaneously to drive the delineation process.

  • Publication number: 20130016353
    Abstract: A cavity ring down system is optimized to precisely measure trace gases or particles in an air sample by using time sampling detection and multiple-sample averaging resulting in a high signal-to-noise ratio. In one embodiment, a cavity ring down system is programmed to measure the rise time and the fall time of the light level in an optical cavity. The cavity ring down system is programmed to integrate a plurality of sample portions during a rise time and a plurality of sample portions during a fall time (in alternate intervals) to obtain a time constant with no sample present and a time constant with sample present. The measurements are used to calculate trace gases in the air sample.
