  • Patent number: 10456660
    Abstract: A board game comprises one or more game objects such as a game board and game pieces, at least one memory device and at least one controller. Each of the game objects comprise a globally unique identifier and dynamic characteristic values associated with the unique identifier, stored in the memory device, that define the characteristics/attributes of the corresponding game object when used in the game. A user is able to play the game by utilizing the game objects according to their characteristic values. During the course of game play, the events of the game are able to dynamically change the characteristic values of each game object affected by the event. Similarly, outside of game play, external events are also able to dynamically change the characteristic values of a game object. These characteristic values are able to be kept and updated during and in between games.

  • Patent number: 10456675
    Abstract: A board game system comprises one or more game objects, a processing device, a memory device and one or more cameras. Each of the game objects comprise a unique visual marker positioned on a top surface of the game object, wherein the unique visual marker comprises a series of concentric rings that represent data that uniquely identifies the game object. As a result, during the course of game play, the location and identification of the game objects are able to be determined by the processing device by analyzing images captured by the one or more cameras of the visual markers of the game objects on the game board. The processing device is able to compare the data of the visual markers to a table stored in the memory device that associates the data with a specific game object.

  • Patent number: 10183212
    Abstract: A system, device and method for determining the position of objects comprising one or more furniture items and/or building structures having one or more sensors and a controller coupled to the sensors. The sensors detect when one or more objects having at least one sensor tag are positioned proximate one of the sensors and transmit a signal to the controller including an identifier of the object and the sensor that detected the objects. As a result, the controller is able to track the position of the objects in relation to the furniture and/or building structures preventing the items from being lost and increasing efficiency when looking for misplaced objects.

  • Patent number: 10155152
    Abstract: An intelligent game system and apparatus comprises one or more sensors, a controller, a projector, one or more game pieces and one or more foldable three-dimensional terrain pieces. The game board and terrain pieces comprise one or more sensors each having an identifier for sensing when a game piece or terrain piece is located on the game board and/or terrain piece. The sensors obtain object information from the game pieces and/or terrain pieces and transfer the object information to a controller. The sensors of the terrain pieces transfer the object information to the sensor of the terrain piece below them until the bottom terrain piece transfer the object information to a game board sensor. The controller is thereby able to track properties of the game and/or terrain pieces, such as position, and adjust the gameplay accordingly.

  • Publication number: 20180176778
    Abstract: A method of replacing an authentication parameter for authenticating a security element co-operating with a terminal includes storing in the security element a first authentication parameter; transmitting to a mobile network operator the first authentication parameter for the operator to record it in its authentication system; on occurrence of an event, having a remote platform transmit to the security element an indicator informing the security element that it is authorized to replace the first authentication parameter with a second authentication parameter if its authentication fails; on occurrence of the event, having the entity transmit to the operator a second authentication parameter to replace the first authentication parameter; and in the event of subsequent failure of the security element to connect to the mobile network and if the indicator is present at the security element, replacing the first authentication parameter with the second authentication parameter at the security element.

  • Publication number: 20180167008
    Abstract: A method for determining a droop response profile of a rotating electrical machine supplying electricity to an electrical grid having a network frequency varying on either side of a nominal frequency, in which a measured value of the rotation speed of the rotating machine is retrieved, and the droop response parameters dependent on the measured speed value are defined. The droop response profile is a graph centered on the coordinates of an origin point between 99% and 101% of the measured speed and defined by at least two points of coordinates in the case of underspeed and/or by at least two points of coordinates in the case of overspeed, each of the points having for its abscissa a speed value as a percentage of the measured speed, and for the ordinates, a filtered speed value as a percentage of the measured speed modulated by at least one of the droop response parameters.

  • Patent number: 9838808
    Abstract: A hearing aid comprises a microphone on a proximal side of a device housing and a loudspeaker which via a transmission channel is in open communication with a sound-emitting opening of the device. A sound processing device serves to generate sound received by the microphone to the loudspeaker in amplified form. The device housing is provided on a distal side with an optionally sealed battery chamber for receiving a battery therein. The transmission channel is at least almost wholly separated from the microphone acoustically in order to prevent acoustic feedback. The battery chamber comprises ventilation means for the purpose of increasing the lifespan of the battery.
