  • Patent number: 10939522
    Abstract: Systems and methods include receiving a desired light color temperature-time function. A first drive signal parameter is selected for a first light source having a first color temperature and a second drive signal parameter is selected for a second light source having a second color temperature. The drive signal parameters are selected to create a color temperature for a value of the desired light color temperature-time function. First light is emitted from the first light source and second light from the second light source. The first light and the second light combine to form blended light at the color temperature for the value from the desired light color temperature-time function.

  • Patent number: 10634910
    Abstract: An apparatus to provide reflection and information includes a mirror, which has a front side and a backside and further includes a glass layer. The glass layer has an area and a first reflectivity. A reflective layer is adhered to the backside of the mirror and a protective layer is adhered to the reflective layer. The reflective layer further includes a vanishing viewing window. Within the vanishing viewing window at least a part of the protective layer is removed from the to provide a second reflectivity for the vanishing viewing window, such that the first reflectivity is greater than the second reflectivity. The apparatus includes a data display. The data display is positioned behind the vanishing viewing window, such that when a user views the front side, the user sees a reflection in the mirror when the data display is in an off state and when the data display is in an on state the user sees a reflection in the mirror and data in the vanishing viewing window.

  • Patent number: 9817526
    Abstract: A wirelessly enabled content delivery apparatus includes a surface. The surface has a front side and a back side. An electronics board has a through hole. A conductive touch pad layer is placed between the back side of the surface and the electronics board. The electronics board further includes a conductive element. The conductive element passes through the through hole. A wireless data module is part of a wireless data system. The wireless data system is attached to the electronics board and the wireless data module is electrically connected to a first end of the conductive element. The electronics board is coupled to the back side of the surface and is aligned so that a second end of the conductive element is in electrical contact with the touch pad layer.
