  • Publication number: 20060239676
    Abstract: A method for rating images to facitilate image retrival that includes, storing a plurality of digital image files in a digital memory; displaying the plurality of stored digital image files; permitting a user to select ratings for each of the plurality of displayed images, wherein the rating indicates how much the user likes each displayed image. Whereupon being responsive to the user ratings, user image values are provided for each of the the plurality of displayed images. Additionally, the user image values are stored as metadata in each of the plurality of stored digital image files corresponding to the plurality of displayed images, wherein the user image value uses a multi-point scale and wherein a maximum point value corresponds to a best rating.

  • Publication number: 20060221604
    Abstract: A mobile illumination apparatus. A universal clamp for attaching to wide range objects such that a broad range of clamping abilities are achieved. Incorporating into the clamp a self-locking ratcheting mechanism for adjusting over a range of spans and fold-out fingers for applying force to the object; the clamp folds up against or into the apparatus for transport or storage. An extendable-and-retractable neck mounting for a transducing-element head thereon, for activating-deactivating the transducing-element, and moving the head to hold an orientation so as to illuminate a region-of-immediate-interest or a particular target. Drive and control circuitry to maintain the illumination intensity substantially constant.

  • Publication number: 20050231939
    Abstract: A flexible, translucent polymer purse that illuminates on its entire exterior surface for an appealing visual effect. The structure of the purse 10 is composed of a translucent polymer, to which is interchangeably attached a compact LED illumination unit 30 that shines light into a dimple 12, “pumping” light into the purse structure, causing it to glow from an internal refraction illumination. A purse that is manufactured with a process called “dip-molding,” which yields a product that is soft and compliant to touch, yet which retains a semi-rigid shape from its original manufacturing mold. A purse that uses the same refractory illumination method in its flexible polymer shoulder strap or carrying handle 40 as in its shell structure 10.

  • Publication number: 20050206751
    Abstract: An image processing system (10) obtains image sequences and assembles a presentation therefrom. The system has a camera (12) for capturing image sequences, a random-access electronic memory (16) for temporary storage of the image sequences, an input reader for accepting pre-programmed instructions from a first storage medium, a control panel with a display (18) for viewing image sequences (64) and presenting pre-programmed instructions to the operator and an operator interface for accepting responses to the pre-programmed instructions. A control logic processor (20) executes pre-programmed instructions and arranges the presentation from the captured image sequences stored in random-access electronic memory (16), according to operator responses. An output writer records the presentation onto a storage medium.
