  • Patent number: 10687831
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides reaming apparatuses. The reaming apparatuses can comprise a base guide, a reamer, and a reamer driver. The base guide can define a base guide through bore and a base guide articulating surface. The base guide articulating surface can be oriented at an angle relative to the base guide through bore. The reamer can define a reamer articulating surface operable to allow rotation of the reamer on the base guide articulating surface. The reamer driver can operate with the reamer to cause rotation of the reamer when the reamer driver rotates.

  • Patent number: 10346406
    Abstract: The systems, apparatus, methods, and computer program products described herein provide the capability for an entity to identify and autonomously contract via a blockchain database with an unknown and anonymous host device for access rights to a high volume raw data stream generated by a sensor of the host device. The systems, apparatus, methods, and computer program products further provide the capability for the entity to push or upload a software module to the host device to allow the entity to process the high volume raw data stream into a low volume data stream directly on the host device, i.e., at the source of the high volume raw data stream.
