  • Patent number: 11441915
    Abstract: A system receives locations of a plurality of electricity-generating units in an area, and it divides the area into a plurality of sectors. The system traverses through the sectors and forms a set of sectors. The set of sectors includes a set of electricity-generating units. The set of electricity-generating units does not exceed an aggregate voltage threshold. The system forms a circuit with the set of electricity-generating units by determining a shortest path to connect the set of electricity-generating units. The system adjusts this shortest path to incorporate environmental and physical constraints.

  • Patent number: 11430379
    Abstract: A messaging apparatus for wearable items. The messaging apparatus may comprise a light source, at least one sensor to detect an event, and a controller to control the flashing of the light source in response to the detection of the event. The controlling of the flashing of the light source may generate at least one visible element that is visible to a viewer. Further, the light source may not be adapted in the form of the at least one visible element, but rather, the controlled flashing of the light source may be in the form of the at least one visible element.

  • Patent number: 11423114
    Abstract: Systems for automatically suggesting content items to an author of a digital page so that they can be added to the page. One embodiment comprises a system having a page editor that launches a component browser to enable viewing of content items stored in a repository. A web content management server extracts textual information from a digital page that is open for editing and analyzes the information to identify words indicative of the page's subject matter. The system generates a query using the identified words and a search engine searches the repository for items associated with the identified words. The content items identified by the search are displayed by the component browser and are selectable to add particular suggested content items to the page.

  • Publication number: 20220262042
    Abstract: A decompression method determines image element values from compressed data representing a block of image element values relating to a respective one or more channels. For each of the channels, an indication of a first number of bits representing difference values between the data values and an origin value for the channel is read from the compressed data. For each of the channels, a second number of bits is obtained, wherein representations of the difference values for each of the channels are included in the compressed data using the second number of bits for that channel. The obtained second numbers of bits for the respective channels are used to read the representations of the difference values for the image element values being decompressed. Based on the representations of the difference values, a difference value is determined in accordance with the first number of bits for the channel.

  • Patent number: 10814262
    Abstract: A flow control device for controlling fluid flow into a filter cartridge. The flow control device comprises a hollow body comprising a fluid flow inlet and a fluid flow outlet. The flow control device is configured to split fluid flowing toward the filter cartridge into at least two distinct flow streams, a first distinct flow stream of the at least two distinct flow streams being a flow stream which flows into the hollow body through the fluid flow inlet and out of the hollow body through the fluid flow outlet, and a second distinct flow stream of the at least two distinct flow streams being a flow stream which does not flow into the hollow body through the fluid flow inlet and out of the hollow body through the fluid flow outlet.

  • Patent number: 10534603
    Abstract: A device may receive input to perform a renaming operation in a graphical modeling environment. The device may identify a selected element, included in the graphical modeling environment, based on the input. The device may determine an element indicator associated with the selected element. The element indicator may be used to identify a relationship between the selected element and a related element included in the graphical modeling environment. The device may identify, based on the element indicator, the related element associated with the selected element. The device may modify the element indicator based on receiving the input to perform the renaming operation, and may modify a corresponding element indicator corresponding to the related element.

  • Publication number: 20190327949
    Abstract: A portable storage device with seating capabilities includes of a hollow enclosure, a planar top panel, a planar bottom panel, a first opening, a second opening, at least one pull-out drawer, and a sliding mechanism. The planar top panel and the planar bottom panel are connected at opposite ends of the hollow enclosure. Both the first opening and the second opening traverse into a structural body of the hollow enclosure. Thus, an interior of the hollow enclosure can be accessed through the first opening or the second opening. Preferably, the at least one pull-out drawer is integrated into the first opening through the sliding mechanism. As a result, small items can be organized in the at least one pull-out drawer. The planar top panel, which can be sleeved by a padded cover, is used for seating purposes when the hollow enclosure is in an upright position.

  • Publication number: 20170224081
    Abstract: A motorized misting hair dye applicator for dispersing a dye mist throughout the hair of a user employs a comb body having a plurality of teeth which each include an ultrasonic atomizer nozzle integral therewith. The comb body additionally includes a dye distribution system which allows stored liquid dye to be directed from a reservoir to each of the nozzles where the dye can be atomized into a mist. A momentary actuating button provides a manual switching interface which allows a user to selectively operate the dye distribution system so as to control the dispersal of dye mist from the nozzles. When a user combines this misting activity with the simple act of combing the teeth through their hair, the dye mist is dispersed throughout the portion of their hair being combed.
