  • Patent number: 11080965
    Abstract: An electronic gaming system includes a progressive system server configured to establish a tiered plurality of progressive jackpots that includes a first jackpot increasable a first cap value, a second jackpot increasable to a second cap value greater than the first cap value, and at least one intermediate jackpot increasable to at least one intermediate cap value greater than the first cap value and less than the second cap value. The progressive system server is further configured to allocate portions of player wagers to one of i) the first jackpot, ii) the at least one intermediate jackpot, and iii) the second jackpot, whereby the first jackpot is initially incrementally increased to the first cap value, the at least one intermediate jackpot is next incrementally increased to the at least one intermediate cap value, and the second jackpot is next incrementally increased to the second cap value.

  • Publication number: 20200359996
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates generally to medical imaging devices, such as a real-time visualization and diagnostic and/or therapeutic tool assembly, which may include an ergonomic handle and catheter configured for dual-function use during a medical procedure. By way of non-limiting example, the medical device may be configured for use with a probe, such as one disposed at the distal end of the catheter, and delivered within a bronchoscope working channel to provide real-time visualization (e.g., radial ultrasound imaging) and manipulation (e.g., diagnostic biopsy sampling) of pulmonary nodules in peripheral regions of the lung. As disclosed herein, in various embodiments, one or more components of the medical imaging device may be configured to position a catheter with a first tool/instrument (e.g., a biopsy needle) within a peripheral region of the lung while maintaining real-time visualization of the pulmonary nodule (e.g., with a second tool/instrument, such as a radial ultrasound probe).

  • Patent number: 10785575
    Abstract: An electrostatic transducer (100) comprises an electrically conductive backplane member (102) having an array of through apertures (112); a spacer member (104) disposed over the backplane member (102), the spacer member (104) having an array of holes (114) therethrough, the holes (114) each having a maximum lateral dimension less than twice a minimum lateral dimension; and a flexible electrically conductive membrane (106) disposed over the spacer member (104). The transducer (100) is arranged in use to apply an electrical potential which gives rise to an attractive electrostatic force between the backplane member (102) and the membrane (106) thereby moving portions of the membrane (106) spanning said holes in the spacer member (104) towards said backplane member (102).
