  • Publication number: 20240159350
    Abstract: An adjustable height platform includes three corners with lifting mechanisms and one corner without. A scissor support mechanism is located under the platform and has two pivoting ends and two sliding ends with roller bearings on each, that attach to upper and lower frames of the platform using “C” shaped bearing guides, that allow the scissor ends to roll inside each guide. In use, as the platform is raised on each corner that has a lifting actuator, the fixed scissor ends are forced to open, being pulled apart by the upper and lower frames, and thus the opposite ends of the scissor mechanism that are near the unsupported corner are forced to open and act on the upper and lower unsupported frame corner through the “C” shaped bearing guides, therefor raising the unsupported corner accordingly and proportionately to the corners with the lifting actuator.

  • Publication number: 20240143905
    Abstract: A method for partially publishing edits to a document is described. A first document including a first cell and a second cell is displayed on first user account on a first computing device and on a second user account. A second document including a linked version of the first cell and a linked version of the second cell is displayed. An edit of the first cell is received from the first user account and an edit of the second cell is received. In response to receiving an indication from the first user account that the edit of the first cell is to be published, the edit of the first cell is made to the linked version of the first cell, while the linked version of the second cell is unchanged so that the content of the linked version of the second cell no longer matches that of the second cell.

  • Publication number: 20240140592
    Abstract: A control input operable by a user for controlling movement of an aircraft includes a base portion configured for coupling to a support surface, the base portion biased towards a neutral position defined along a central axis and pivotable to a plurality of angular positions relative to the central axis. The control input also includes a grip portion having inputs for controlling movement of the aircraft and pivotally coupled to the base portion, the grip portion pivotable between a first position in which the grip portion extends from the base portion and a second position in which the grip portion is pivoted relative to the base portion. Further, the control input includes a lock mechanism for locking the grip portion in the first position wherein releasing the lock mechanism allows the grip portion to move to the second position.

  • Patent number: 11934758
    Abstract: A method for dynamically generating or interacting with an electromagnetic field includes providing a spatial array of conductive segments, a switching device operable on each of the conductive segments to either allow or block transmission of an electrical signal and a control device operable on the switching device. A sequence of the conductive segments are connected to form a conductive path where each segments intersects with at least two different ones of the conductive segments at a node. The switching device operates to connect a selected first one of the conductive segments with a selected second one of the conductive segments to form the sequence according to a logic signal from the control device. Power is supplied to the conductive path to produce an electromagnetic field which depends at least in part on the spatial arrangement of the connected sequence of the conductive segments.
