  • Publication number: 20210229780
    Abstract: A systemic dual motor framing for a watercraft is provided as is the overall system. The systemic dual motor framing is movable between a folded condition and an unfolded condition for attaching with the assistance of strapping to a stern of the watercraft, sleeve-like, either by sliding over the stern end or strapping around the stern. In the unfolded condition, the systemic dual motor framing facilities the strapping while maintaining a motor on each side of the watercraft, wherein the two motors can be selectively powered in conjunction remotely.

  • Patent number: 11055786
    Abstract: A system segments a set of images of a property to identify a type of damage to the property. The system receives, from an image capturing device, a digital image of a roof or other feature of the property. The system processes the image to identify a set of segments, in which each segment corresponds to a piece of the feature, such as a tab or tooth of a shingle on the roof. The system saves a result of the processing to a data file as a segmented image of the property, and it uses the segmented image to identify a type of damage to the property.

  • Patent number: 11002632
    Abstract: A system for measuring a polarization extinction ratio (PER) using a reference master test jumper (MTJ) is disclosed. The system may include an optical source to transmit an optical signal via an optical fiber. The system may also include a device under test (DUT) communicatively coupled to the optical source via the optical fiber to receive the optical signal from the optical source. The system may also include an optical measurement component communicatively coupled to the device under test (DUT). In some examples, the optical fiber may be configured or initialized to be a reference master test jumper (MTJ) that minimizes inherent polarization extinction ratio (PER) of the optical fiber when measuring a polarization extinction ratio (PER) during a measurement action.

  • Publication number: 20210052985
    Abstract: A method of changing a virtual world of a computer-implemented game based on real-world locations of players of the computer-implemented game is disclosed. A presence of a player of the computer-implemented game is detected at a physical location. A presence of an additional player of the computer-implemented game is detected at the physical location based on a communication received from the player of the computer-implemented game. An aspect of the virtual world of the computer-implemented game is changed based on the detecting of the presence of the player at the physical location and the detecting of the presence of the additional player of the computer-implemented game at the physical location.

  • Publication number: 20210003472
    Abstract: A test instrument tests an optical component of a fiber optic network. The test instrument determines signal parameters describing pulses to be emitted by lasers of the test instrument to test the optical component, and directly modulates the lasers to repeatedly emit the pulses at different wavelengths on a single fiber optic cable in a time division multiplexing manner. The test instrument triggers powering measurements to coincide with the emitted pulses, and determines performance parameters of the optical component based on the triggered power measurements.

  • Patent number: 10881954
    Abstract: A method of providing virtual items based on location-based action is disclosed. An indication is received of a performance of a location-based action by a player of a computer-implemented game. A virtual item is provided based on the receiving of the indication of the performance of the location-based action by the player of the computer-implemented game. The virtual item may be usable within the computer-implemented game.

  • Patent number: 10818007
    Abstract: Systems and methods for determining an apparent skin age of a person and providing customized skin care product recommendations. The system utilizes a computing device to mask facial macro features in an image of a person and then analyze the image with a convolutional neural network to determine an apparent skin age of the person. Determining the apparent skin age may include identifying at least one pixel that is indicative of skin age and utilizing the at least one pixel to provide the apparent skin age. The system may be used to determine a target skin age of a person, determine a skin care product or skin care regimen for achieving the target skin age, and provide an option for a user to purchase the product.
