  • Patent number: 10775124
    Abstract: Apparatus and associated methods relate to a motor-less cartridge ring gear engagement module (CRGEM) for a turret-rotating system that includes a main drive gear configured to rotate in a rotation plane, a manual input shaft that extends substantially orthogonal relative to the rotation plane, and a drive shaft that extends substantially orthogonal relative to the rotation plane, where the drive shaft and the manual input shaft extend substantially parallel to one another. In an illustrative example, both the main drive gear and a hand crank may be located on a top surface of the CRGEM. In some embodiments, a manual drive cap may be hingedly coupled to the gearbox and configured to rotate in a vertical plane that is substantially orthogonal to the rotation plane. At least some examples may provide for a hand-operated, manual traverse unit that advantageously does not require electrical power to operate.

  • Publication number: 20200272755
    Abstract: In some examples, a system is to receive, from a client device, a query comprising a representation of blockchain information of an entity associated with an electronic device that advertised the representation. The system is to further determine whether a client entity associated with the client device has a privilege to access response information that is responsive to the query, and in response to determining that the client entity has the privilege to access the response information, send, to a blockchain network, a request containing the blockchain information to obtain the response information.

  • Publication number: 20200261799
    Abstract: Described herein is a system and method for creating a shared coordinate space in an augmented reality session between two devices with disjoint relative coordinate spaces. With AR tracking initiated, each device has its own relative coordinate space. A spatial alignment image can be recognized by a device joining an AR session which records its location (e.g., six degrees of position). The joining device can utilize an obtained location of an inviting device at or about the time the spatial alignment image was recognized, and, a spatial origin of the inviting device, to calculate an offset between the joining device and the inviting device, establishing a shared coordinate space between the joining device and the inviting device.

  • Publication number: 20200264757
    Abstract: Described herein is a system and method for identifying locations for virtual items within a physical environment. For each of a plurality of users, information is received regarding the user's interaction with a one or more interactive virtual items presented on a map of a virtual environment that parallels at least portions of the physical environment. The information comprises the user's physical location when interacting with a particular interactive item. Each interactive virtual item has an associated physical location within the physical environment. The received information is aggregated over time to determine an associated physical location within the physical environment for the virtual item. With the virtual environment, the virtual item is placed at the determined associated physical location.

  • Publication number: 20200265806
    Abstract: Described herein is a system and method for experiencing a virtual object at a plurality of sizes. During an AR session, the virtual object can created at a first size based upon a first scale (e.g., miniature, tabletop size). Once created, information regarding the virtual object can be stored. Thereafter, the virtual object can be displayed in an AR session at a second size based upon a second scale (e.g., full size or life size). In some embodiments, functionality of at least portion(s) of the virtual object are different when experienced in an AR session at the second size than when experienced in an AR session at the first size.

    Abstract: A patient interface is configured to deliver a flow of pressurized breathable gas to a patient's airways. The patient interface includes a central portion with an opening configured to deliver the pressurized breathable gas to the patient's nares. A first stabilizing portion extends from the central portion and is structured to engage an outer side of a respective one of the patient's nostrils. A second stabilizing portion is opposite the first stabilizing portion and extends from the central portion. In addition, the second stabilizing surface is structured to engage an outer side of a respective one of the patient's nostrils. The central portion, the first stabilizing portion and the second stabilizing portion cooperate to form a U-shape configured to cradle the patient's nose so that the tip of the patient's nose remains exposed when the patient interface is mounted on the patient's face.
