  • Patent number: 10752042
    Abstract: An article includes a substrate and a graphical component forming an image and an optical component which includes magnetic pigment flakes aligned so as to form a frame pattern which surrounds the image. When light is incident upon the pigment flakes from a light source, light reflected from the frame pattern forms a dynamic frame which surrounds the image and appears to move as the substrate is tilted with respect to the light source. The image appears to be stationary when the dynamic frame appears to move.

  • Publication number: 20200246026
    Abstract: A surgical instrument includes a first member defining an axis and including a cutting surface. A second member includes a cutting surface that is rotatable relative to the first member. A third member includes an outer surface. The cutting surface of the second member is rotatable relative to the outer surface to transfer the cut tissue along the axis. Systems and methods are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20200215845
    Abstract: In a printed article, pigment flakes are magnetically aligned so as to form curved patterns in a plurality of cross-sections normal a continuous imaginary line, wherein radii of the curved patterns increase along the imaginary line from the first point to the second point. When light is incident upon the aligned pigment flakes from a light source, light reflected from the aligned pattern forms a bright image which appears to gradually change its shape and move from one side of the continuous imaginary line to another side of the continuous imaginary line when the substrate is tilted with respect to the light source.

  • Patent number: 10667862
    Abstract: According to one aspect, a medical system may include a laser source for providing laser energy. The medical system may also include a fluid source containing a fluid for absorbing the laser energy to generate heat. The medical system may further include a medical device operatively coupled to the laser source and the fluid source. The medical device may include a shaft having a distal end, and a cap at the distal end of the shaft. The cap may include a lens and a reflector for deflecting the laser energy toward the lens. The lens may be configured to emit the laser energy from the cap toward a target.

  • Patent number: 7841906
    Abstract: An electrical connector including a first and second assembly that are matable with one another by a sliding push fit to establish electrical interconnection between the two assemblies is disclosed. The first assembly includes a contact pin with a collar extending concentrically around the pin to define a recess therebetween, with the collar supporting on its inner surface a first resilient contact element. The second assembly includes a sleeve open at one end thereof such that the sleeve can be received in the recess of the first assembly, with the sleeve supporting on its inner surface a second resilient contact element. The two assemblies may be arranged such that, when the second assembly is inserted into the first assembly, the first resilient contact element makes sliding electrical contact with an external surface of the sleeve of the second assembly, and the second resilient contact element makes sliding electrical contact with the external surface of the pin of the first assembly.

  • Patent number: 6447337
    Abstract: An electrical connector has a forward assembly with an outer metal housing supporting several insulative blocks containing the connector contacts. The rear end of each contact has a socket into which is inserted the forward end of conductors contained in a rear assembly. Some of the conductors are filtered and others unfiltered. Connection is made to the rear end of the conductors in the rear assembly by means of plates connected at the end of a cable, the plates supporting contacts that are a push-fit in the rear of the conductors in the rear assembly.
