  • Publication number: 20200051401
    Abstract: In accordance with some embodiments, a system which includes a plurality of baccarat tables on which a baccarat game may be played by a plurality of players and a plurality of electronic player devices each playable by an individual player provides for selecting a plurality of outcomes which were dealt on at least one of the baccarat tables, determining whether a trend or pattern has developed in the plurality of outcomes (e.g., a pattern of at least a predetermined length) and, if a pattern has developed, activating a wagering opportunity on one of the electronic player devices, the wagering opportunity allowing a player to bet for or against the trend. In one embodiment, each outcome of the plurality of selected outcomes comprises an outcome originally dealt on the same baccarat table.

  • Publication number: 20190321111
    Abstract: In an articulating probe system, an articulating probe is constructed and arranged to articulate in at least one degree of motion and to transition between a flexible state and a rigid state, the articulating probe comprising a plurality of links between a proximal link and a distal link. The distal link of the articulating probe includes a side port constructed and arranged to receive a distal end of an elongate tool. A tool support is in communication with the articulating probe for supporting the elongate tool, the tool support including a tool tube that extends from the tool support at an intermediate portion to the side port of the distal link at a distal portion, the tool tube having a first flexibility in the intermediate portion and having a second flexibility in the distal portion; the second flexibility being greater in flexibility than the first flexibility.

  • Publication number: 20190295105
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media for scoring an individual interaction session between a user and a software program are disclosed. A method includes recording, by a processing device, one or more actions undertaken by the user with the software program to obtain recorded session data, determining, by the processing device in real-time, one or more metrics that correspond to at least one of the one or more actions undertaken by the user with the software program, measuring, by the processing device, the one or more actions undertaken by the user based on the one or more metrics to obtain metric data, and providing, by the processing device, the recorded session data and the metric data as an input for one or more of a machine learning algorithm and a predictive analytic algorithm. The one or more of the machine learning algorithm and the predictive analytic algorithm scores the individual interaction session.

  • Patent number: 10304293
    Abstract: In accordance with some embodiments, a gaming apparatus provides for an electronic baccarat game in which game elements are placed in a game element matrix within which a plurality of paylines are defined. Each payline consists of a baccarat hand which includes a first subset of game element positions attributed to the Player side and a second subset of game element positions attributed to the Banker side. In one embodiment, a player may place a wager on a game instance of the baccarat game and select one of a Player side and a Banker side for the wager. A payout is determined for the game instance based on which of the Player side and the Banker side the player selected and how many of the paylines resulted in a Player side win and how many of the paylines resulted in a Banker side win.

  • Patent number: 10111011
    Abstract: An electrostatic speaker is described that includes a curved diaphragm positioned between two electrically conductive plates. According to aspects, the curved diaphragm has an “S-shape” and is configured to electrostatically move between the conductive plates. In particular, the curved diaphragm may generally roll between the two conductive plates so as to move from left to right with respect to ends of the conductive plates and push air in a direction toward ends of the conductive plates, thus generating acoustic output. In some implementations, the configuration of the electrostatic speaker reduces a biasing voltage required for the conductive plates.

  • Patent number: 10092067
    Abstract: A walking stick can include a handle (50) including a head (52). The head (52) can include at least one internal reinforcement member (90). The at least one internal reinforcement member (90) can have a shape that is substantially the same as a shape of the head (52). The bathing wand can include a neck (54) and a shaft (20). The bathing wand can also include a foot (150, 180) for engaging the ground. The foot (150, 180) can be coupled to the shaft (20). In some aspects, the foot (180) can include at least two arms (186) extending from a top portion (190) towards a bottom portion (194) of the foot (180). Each of the at least two arms (186) can be coupled together through a base (188) of the of the bottom portion (194). In some aspects, at least one arm (186) can form a loop (193).

  • Publication number: 20180160205
    Abstract: Embodiments are provided for an improved peripheral speaker. The peripheral speaker includes an exterior casing enclosing one or more drivers. The exterior casing further has a channel formed therein such that the channel is sized to removably secure an electronic device. The exterior casing is equipped with a connector lead which partially defines the cavity and that connects the one or more drivers to a port of the electronic device. The one or more drivers output audio according to an audio signal transmitted from the electronic device via the connector lead.

  • Patent number: 9935949
    Abstract: Embodiments are provided for mutually authenticating a pair of electronic devices. According to certain aspects, the electronic devices may connect to each other via an out-of-band communication channel. The electronic devices may each output audio signals and detect audio signals output by the other electronic devices. Based on timestamps associated with audio output and detection events, each of the electronic devices may calculate relevant time and distance parameters, and transmit the calculated parameters to the other electronic device via the out-of-band communication channel. The electronic devices may compare the calculated parameters to determine mutual authentication.
