  • Publication number: 20180178898
    Abstract: An aircraft includes a substrate having a curvature to form a lift surface, a plurality of solar cells carried by, bonded to, and impressed into the substrate, and electrical connections between the solar cells carried by the substrate. The electrical connections coupled to link the solar cells together to provide power to the aircraft while in flight.

  • Patent number: 9957037
    Abstract: A method of making a solar cell assembly includes placing backsides of multiple solar cells in contact with a substrate. The solar cells are electrically connected to each other. Heat and pressure are applied to the solar cells and the substrate to simultaneously impress the solar cells into the substrate and bond the solar cells to the substrate.

  • Publication number: 20170115545
    Abstract: An optical device, such as a camera, with an electrochromic lens cap is disclosed. The electrochromic lens cap is electrically switchable and thermally erasable and can reversibly and visibly change from an opaque state to a highly transparent state when a charge is applied to it. A power source such as a battery or photovoltaic cell can supply the charge. In addition, the electrochromic lens cap can reversibly change from an opaque state to a highly transparent state when there is a temperature change in the electrochromic lens cap's environment. The optical device has an actuator and/or transceiver that can communicate with a remote device to control when and how the charge is applied to the electrochromic lens cap to change it to the opaque state, color, pattern, or other feature. Another feature of this invention is using the electrochromic lens cap as a neutral-density filter for an optical device.

  • Publication number: 20170102606
    Abstract: This invention relates to a device comprised of at least two interchangeable modules, wherein at least one module has a power source and/or data storage unit and can transmit power and/or data to all of the electrically and mechanically mated modules. The device is designed for use in extreme weather environments, such as but not limited to, snow, rain, at elevation, and/or under pressure. In addition, each mating point between the at least two modules is waterproof. In a preferred embodiment, the device is comprised of a first module that is an optical head, with at least two optical lenses and can sense and capture image data. A second module is a handle comprised of a battery. When the first and second modules are electrically and mechanically mated, the two modules are secure and waterproof and the device operates as a 360° optical camera with an interchangeable power handle module.

  • Publication number: 20160363806
    Abstract: This invention relates to a carrying case with at least one electrochromic panel that can reversibly change from an opaque “off-state” to a highly transparent “on-state” when a button, dial, switch, snap, voice command, remote device, toggle, proximity sensor, other pocket, pouch, or flap on the carrying case, temperature sensor, or any other type of actuator that applies a charge to the electrochromic panel is activated. The electrochromic panel can be on any facet of the carrying case or multiple electrochromic panels can layer on top of each other to create various effects. Each electrochromic panel can have varying properties including, but not limited to, unique textures, transparency when voltages are applied, polarizations, colors, densities, finishes, and/or holographic displays. The electrochromic panel can be used on various appliances, furniture, devices, and/or over optical lenses to prevent an unauthorized remote user from viewing scenes through the optical lens.
