  • Patent number: 9492035
    Abstract: A catering box with active climate control is configured to transport “delicate” foods, such as grilled cheese sandwiches, hot dogs, and hamburgers, without inducing substantial sogginess in the bread of those food items. The catering box includes a heat mass configured to retain heat generated by a hot plate and to then radiate that heat, during transport, after the hot plate has been disconnected from a power source. In addition, the catering box includes an exhaust fan that actively controls internal specific humidity levels in order to prevent moisture from settling within the bread of stored food items. A microcontroller within the catering box monitors temperature and absolute humidity levels, computes the current specific humidity level, and then selectively engages or disengages the exhaust fan in response. With his approach, the catering box may limit the degree to which humidity settles within the bread of delicate food items stored within.

  • Publication number: 20160296294
    Abstract: A robotic surgical system comprises a horizontal platform to support a patient, a rail positioned about the horizontal platform, a carriage operatively coupled to and configured to translate along the rail, and a robotic arm operatively coupled to the carriage and translated about the patient by the rail. The robotic arm is configured to operate on the patient in a variety of positions provided by the translating carriage. The rail provides a rounded path for the carriage, such as a U-shaped path. The U-shaped path may comprise a first leg and a second leg, the first leg longer than the second leg. Furthermore, the system may comprise a plurality of carriages operatively coupled to the rail and a plurality of robotic arms. Also, the system may further comprise a central base which the horizontal platform can articulate relative to, such as by translating horizontally or vertically, rotating, or titling.

  • Publication number: 20160148029
    Abstract: An authentication server receives a request for a user-identification code from a computing device. The authentication server generates the user-identification code. The authentication server also generates an expiration date associated with the user-identification code. The authentication server transmits the user-identification code and the expiration date to the computing device. The authentication server also validates the user-identification code received from a code scanning system.

  • Publication number: 20150319367
    Abstract: A method of providing one or more snapshots extracted from video footage includes displaying a first image in a first display area. The first image is associated with a first capture time. The method also includes displaying a first plurality of preview images in a second display area. The first plurality of preview images are associated with times prior to the first capture time. The method further includes displaying a second plurality of preview images in a third display area. The second plurality of preview images are associated with times subsequent to the first capture time. Moreover, the method includes selecting at least one of the first image, one of the first plurality of preview images, or one of the second plurality of preview images and saving the selected image to a memory.

  • Publication number: 20150205573
    Abstract: The disclosure provides techniques for adjusting in-store media according to customer preferences. A customer's presence or purchase is detected at an establishment, and a system at the establishment retrieves information on media preferences of the customer. A media backend then matches the customer preferences to media items (music tracks, images, videos, etc.), and the matching media items are played, displayed, or broadcast at the establishment. If multiple customers are present at the establishment or make orders, the media backend may order media items that match the customers' preferences in first-served order, or based on a ranking of the customers relative to each other or on the content of the media items themselves.

  • Publication number: 20150156225
    Abstract: At least one server connects with clients via networks such that each client communicates using a different network. The server divides an image based on an application into portions. The server assigns version numbers to the portions such that each version number corresponds to a different portion. The server generates lists that include the version numbers, wherein each list corresponds to a different client. The server shares the image by transmitting image data to each client separately based on the respective list. The server receives update(s) for the image and identifies portion(s) that has changed based on the update. The server assigns an updated version number to the identified changed portion and generates updated lists that include the updated version numbers for the clients such that each updated list corresponds to a different client. The server transmits updated image data to each client separately based on the respective updated list.

  • Publication number: 20150156062
    Abstract: At least one server receives at least one signal representing a request for an initiation of the server for the installation and configuration of an application. The server connects with client(s) after receiving the signal and transmits at least one display image to the client such that the client can render the display image via a web interface, wherein the display image provides information regarding the server. The server receives an application installer, wherein the client is can use the web interface to facilitate transmission of the application installer. The server installs and configures the application based on at least one input received from the client, wherein the client is enabled to use the web interface to facilitate transmitting the input to the server. The server generates an image based on the application configuration and transmits the image to a data management system for storage until deployment.

  • Patent number: 9039331
    Abstract: A modular expandable weighting system for recreational and professional underwater divers that permits a user to selectively attach one or more individual weight units to each other to achieve a desired amount of weight to regulate the user's overall buoyancy while under water. When used with a weight belt, the weights when attached create channels through which a weight belt may be disposed. If two or less weights are attached, end caps may be attached to create the channels to allow the system to be attached to the weight belt. When used without a weight belt, such as on a buoyancy compensator device with multiple weight pockets, the weight system allows for the placement of exact amounts of weights to achieve the desired amount of overall buoyancy as well as to maintain the desired degree of horizontal trim.

  • Publication number: 20150142611
    Abstract: A chain of establishments provides an online ordering system that allows a customer to order virtual items or services from an online menu. When an order is placed, the customer receives an order code that may then be verified at one of many establishment locations at one of many times to initiate order fulfillment. When the order code is verified at a particular restaurant, a point-of-service (POS) system maps the virtual items associated with the order to actual, in-stock items or services that are available at the particular establishment. The order may then be fulfilled and provided to the customer. One advantage of the disclosed technique is that the customer may pickup the order from any desired establishment location, and is not required to select a particular location when the order is placed. Consequently, the customer is provided with streamlined and flexible order placement and fulfillment experience.

  • Patent number: 8649297
    Abstract: A method in one example implementation includes discovering a networking device within a wireless connectivity range from a first computing device. The networking device may be configured for wireless connectivity by sending new network configuration settings to the networking device to be stored in a memory element. The method also includes configuring the first computing device to initiate a wireless connection to the networking device, such that the wireless connection is created without requiring the user to provide any configuration settings associated with the wireless connection. In more specific embodiments, if it is determined that the networking device is unconfigured, then the new network configuration settings are automatically generated. In other more specific embodiments, the new network configuration settings include a new network identifier and a new network password.
