  • Publication number: 20200393905
    Abstract: A wearable Haptic Human Machine Interface (HHMI) receives electrical activity from muscles and nerves of a user. An electrical signal is determined having characteristics based on the received electrical activity. The electrical signal is generated and applied to an object to cause an action dependent on the received electrical activity. The object can be a biological component of the user, such as a muscle, another user, or a remotely located machine such as a drone. Exemplary uses include mitigating tremor, accelerated learning, cognitive therapy, remote robotic, drone and probe control and sensing, virtual and augmented reality, stroke, brain and spinal cord rehabilitation, gaming, education, pain relief, entertainment, remote surgery, remote participation in and/or observation of an event such as a sporting event, biofeedback and remotality. Remotality is the perception of a reality occurring remote from the user. The reality may be remote in time, location and/or physical form.

  • Patent number: 9941450
    Abstract: A bottom electrically conductive surface is disposed on the top surface of a substrate and a top electrically conductive surface disposed on the bottom surface of a superstrate. A bare die electronic device is disposed with at least one of its top conductor in direct electrical communication with the bottom electrically conductive surface and/or its bottom conductor in direct electrical communication with the top conductive surface. A non-conductive adhesive secures the substrate to the superstrate so that the bare die electronic device is retained in direct electrical communication. The non-conductive adhesive has a melting point temperature at least greater than a minimum operating temperature of the operating temperature range of the bare die, so that the non-conductive adhesive does not melt and flow thereby preventing a separation or degradation of the direct electrical connection of the bare die electronic device.

  • Patent number: 8286215
    Abstract: A time sequential signal comprising audiovisual content and network addresses is received and displayed on a display device by the systems of the invention in a time sequential manner. The display of the time sequential signal is paused whenever a displayed network address is selected. While pausing the display, data corresponding to any selected network address is accessed and displayed on the display device. The corresponding data may comprise a web page accessed through the Internet or an interval page that is transmitted within the vertical blanking intervals of the time sequential signal. While pausing the display of the time sequential signal, the time sequential signal is recorded so that it can be viewed in the order it was recorded as soon as a resume display command is received by the system.

  • Patent number: 8183582
    Abstract: A bare die semiconductor device, e.g., a bare die LED, includes a substrate having a bottom face and a bottom die electrode. There is also a top face having a top face edge, a top face area, a top face periphery and a top die electrode. A semiconductor material provides a p-n semiconductor junction between the top and bottom faces. The top die electrode inhibits an external top planar electrode from contact with the top face edges. Such bare die LEDs can be incorporated into a light sheet that has a transparent first substrate having a planar top electrode and a second substrate having a bottom substrate electrode. An adhesive secures the second substrate to the first substrate. Bare die LEDs are disposed in the adhesive with their top die electrodes contacting the top planar electrode and their bottom die electrodes contacting the bottom substrate electrode.

  • Patent number: 8046800
    Abstract: A client system for remotely controlling a video recorder receives program data from a remote server in response to user input selecting a time sequential signal from a program schedule guide provided by the remote server, via the Internet, email, a computer-readable medium, or a broadcast signal. The user input is transmitted to the remote server over the Internet from the client system or a remote location. The client system determines when it is time to record the time sequential signal based at least in part upon the program data, which includes broadcast time, channel, and duration. Upon determining it is time to record, the client system tunes to, receives, and records the transmission of the time sequential signal.

  • Patent number: 7799369
    Abstract: A light active device includes a semiconductor particulate dispersed within a carrier material. A first contact layer is provided so on application of an electric field charge carriers having a polarity are injected into the semiconductor particulate through the carrier material. A second contact layer is provided so on application of the electric field to the second contact layer charge carriers having an opposite polarity are injected into the semiconductor particulate through the carrier material. The semiconductor particulate comprises at least one of an organic and an inorganic semiconductor. The semiconductor particulate may comprise an organic light active particulate. When constructed as a light emitting device, an electric field applied to the semiconductor particulate through the carrier causes charge carriers of opposite polarity to be injected into the semiconductor particulate. The charge carriers combine to form carrier pairs which decay and give off light.
