  • Patent number: 10360226
    Abstract: Aspects of this disclosure generally are related to significant systems and methods of processing qualitative, comment-style, responses provided by a population, and for corresponding production of significant visualizations configured to efficiently facilitate insight into population characteristics and matters important to the population. According to some embodiments, qualitative, or open-ended, comment-style responses are assigned priority values by participants. Based at least on an analysis of these priority values, groups of participants, qualitative responses, or both, are identified, according to some embodiments. In some embodiments, a significant visualization is generated that visually presents the groups at least in part via clusters of visual representations of participants, qualitative responses, or both based at least on results of the analysis.

  • Publication number: 20180104573
    Abstract: A control device with a touch screen and motion sensors is held in one hand with the screen facing the user. Preferably, thumb motion of the hand holding the control device on the touch screen sensor of the control device is the input to control the motion and animations of an avatar, wherein the avatar motion is displayed on the control device touch screen or, in an embodiment, on an external display device. An important aspect of the present invention is tilting the control device, causing an angular rotation velocity, which can trigger a game event such as throwing, kicking, shooting or other action of the game.

  • Patent number: 9895590
    Abstract: A method and system to analyze sports motions using the motion sensors of a mobile device, such as a smart phone, is provided. This method uses the mobile device motion sensor output to define the impact point with a virtual object, such as a golf ball, baseball or tennis ball. The motion sensor signature of the sports motion is analyzed for characteristics, specific to each type of sports motion. A method is disclosed using multiple sensors outputs in a mobile device to compute the impact point with a virtual object, such as a golf ball, baseball, tennis ball. Further, a method is disclosed where moving virtual sports objects interact with virtual sports motions and the responsive outputs are displayed on the mobile device and/or any Web-enabled display device.

  • Publication number: 20170021251
    Abstract: One aspect of the disclosure relates to a method of swinging a mobile device to simulate swinging of a golf club in order to evaluate a user's golf swing for customized golf club fitting. In an embodiment, the method can be performed by a processor of the mobile device. In another embodiment, the method can be performed for multiple mobile devices concurrently, the method performed at least in part on a cloud-based server. According to an aspect of the invention, a method comprises swinging a mobile device having motion sensors integrated therein to simulate a golf swing; evaluating the simulated golf swing to determine at least one characteristic of a custom-fitted golf club; and outputting information related to the determined at least one characteristic. In an embodiment, the mobile device is held by a user. In an alternate embodiment, the mobile device is attached to a golf club.

  • Publication number: 20160260319
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided to connect a control device such as a mobile phone to a display device. The control device can be used to operate (control) an application executing at a server and/or at the display device. In an embodiment, the display device initiates a connection request to the server via a network. The server then generates a unique code, and transmits the code to the display device. The code can be displayed as a matrix barcode. The control device scans the matrix barcode and decodes it. The control device then initiates a connection request to the server and transmits the code to the server. A matching engine connects the control device to the display device corresponding to the code. The connections are preferably made via a full-duplex Internet connection protocol, such as the WebSocket protocol, to facilitate low latency network connections.
