  • Patent number: 11364553
    Abstract: A robotic forming system and method for forming a tapered hole in a workpiece include a housing and a nose extending from the housing. The housing defines an internal chamber. A vacuum gate is in fluid communication with an internal cavity of the nose. A seal is within the nose. A first spindle includes a first operative head. The first spindle is retained within the internal chamber. The first spindle is configured to be moved between a first stowed position within the housing and a first operating position in which the first operative head extends into the nose. The first operative head is configured to form an initial hole within the workpiece. A second spindle includes a second operative head. The second spindle is retained within the internal chamber. The second spindle is configured to be moved between a second stowed position within the housing and a second operating position in which the second operative head extends into the nose.

  • Publication number: 20210256805
    Abstract: Systems and methods enable one or more players to play a wagering game having virtual cards. A game system includes a game server configured to connect to at least one mobile gaming device over a network. The game server includes a processor configured to provide a wagering game having virtual cards to a player using the gaming device. Each wagering game is played by players at a virtual table who are dealt virtual cards to form a hand, and the hand satisfying a winning criterion is determined to be a winning hand. The game system also includes a database that may be implemented as a non-relational database configured to be connected to the game server. The database is configured to store a state of the hands of each table as a plurality of document-oriented datasets. The mobile gaming device may automatically re-authenticate to the game server after a disconnection.

  • Publication number: 20200170616
    Abstract: A system and method for non-invasive and quantitative assessment of the status of bone tissue in a bony member within a living organism are provided. In one embodiment, the system includes a transducer and a controller that causes the transducer to generate a pair of axial ultrasound signals traveling in opposite directions along a longitudinal axis of the bony member and a radial ultrasound signal traveling towards and into the bony member. The transducer receives multiple portions of each of the axial ultrasound signals and multiple portions of the radial ultrasound signal reflected by the bony member and generates axial and pulse-echo output signals in response. The controller processes the axial and pule-echo output signals to obtain an axial transmission time delay and a pulse-echo time delay, respectively, and generates an estimate of a characteristic of the bone tissue responsive to the axial-transmission and pulse-echo time delays.
