  • Patent number: 10910096
    Abstract: A computing system for displaying patient data in augmented reality (AR) is disclosed herein. An AR computing device worn by a healthcare worker captures an image indicative of a patient by way of a camera comprised by the AR computing device. The AR computing device transmits the image to an electronic health records application (EHR) executing on a server computing device. The EHR retrieves patient data for the patient responsive to identifying the patient based upon the image. Responsive to receiving the patient data from the EHR, the AR computing device presents the patient data on an AR display comprised by the AR computing device. The patient data is overlaid on the AR display with a view of surroundings of the healthcare worker as perceived by the healthcare worker through the AR display.

  • Publication number: 20200204365
    Abstract: Technologies and techniques for biometrically authenticating a user for an apparatus. User biometric data is generated via a biometric capture device. A processor processes the user biometric data to generate one or more biometric templates. A memory stores the biometric templates and one or more previously generated biometric templates. A biometric manager module associates executable applications with respective biometric templates, wherein the processor matches one of the biometric templates with the previously generated biometric templates to determine if the matched biometric template is associated with the executable application. The processor generates at least one of a password and/or a cryptographic key for allowing access to the associated executable application based on the matched biometric template.

  • Publication number: 20200173654
    Abstract: Methods are provided for generating or recovering gaseous materials such as hydrogen and solids such as metals through the smoldering combustion of an organic material. The methods include admixing a porous matrix material with an organic material, and, in some embodiments a catalyst, to produce a porous mixture. The mixture is exposed to an oxidant, initiating a self-sustaining smoldering combustion of the mixture, and collecting the vapors and combustion products or processing the porous matrix following combustion to physically separate the porous matrix material from ash containing inorganic materials of value. Additional embodiments aggregate the organic material or catalyst or porous matrix material or mixture thereof in an impoundment such as a reaction vessel, lagoon or matrix pile. Further embodiments utilize at least one heater to initiate combustion and at least one air supply port to supply oxidant to initiate and maintain combustion.

  • Patent number: 10577053
    Abstract: A bicycle rear derailleur has a base member mountable to a bicycle frame, a movable member movably coupled to the base member, a chain guide assembly rotatably connected to the movable member, a biasing element configured to bias the chain guide assembly in a first rotational direction relative to the movable member, and a damper device disposed between the chain guide assembly and the movable member. The damper device is operable to apply a damping force to the chain guide assembly when the chain guide assembly rotates in a second rotational direction relative to the movable member. The damper device includes a friction member having a first end and an outer annular surface. The first end is non-rotatably attached to the chain guide assembly. The outer annular surface of the friction member is in frictional engagement with an inner annular surface of the movable member.

  • Patent number: 10293884
    Abstract: A control device may be configured so as to be integrated, or coupled, with a bicycle to control bicycle components. The control device may also be integrated with other control devices and system components to control bicycle components. The control device may interface with electromechanically controlled bicycle components so as to trigger an action when actuated. The control device may be dimensioned so as to have a mating surface contoured to matingly engage with a mounting surface of a bicycle, such as on a handlebar. The control, device may also be dimensioned so as to have a compact and/or concealed appearance aided by a low profile relative to the bicycle mounting surface selected for the control device. The control device may be configured such that the control device is protected from actuation from unintended or other user inputs.

  • Patent number: 10054107
    Abstract: A present invention describes unique wind turbine assembly in a shape of closed hollow cylinder formed by two sets of three adjustable to positive and negative pitch horizontal blades supported instead of central shaft by three vertical cylindrical blades, which makes this turbine responsive to omni-directional wind. Proposed design concept provides with: Significant increase of turbine efficiency exceeding 60%, which after coupling this rotor with a generator of 60% efficiency leads to overall wind generator efficiency exceeding 40%. Low turbine inertia requiring moderate start up winds and reducing turbine vibrations. Noiseless turbine operation due to its rotation around vertical axis. Environmental friendliness as low operating speed does not generate strong turbulent air flow capable to challenge birds and bugs existence. No electronic control of blades angle of attack. Ease of manufacturing and maintaining together with their reduced cost.

The apparatus includes a configurable platform having a plurality of walls. A plurality of hinges pivotally connect each wall with at least one other wall. The walls of the platform can be oriented and arranged in at least a first configuration forming a housing enclosing the training tools, and a second configuration wherein all of the walls are coplanar. The walls can also be oriented and arranged in at least a third configuration wherein none of the walls are coplanar.
