  • Patent number: 10970849
    Abstract: According to one implementation, a pose estimation and body tracking system includes a computing platform having a hardware processor and a system memory storing a software code including a tracking module trained to track motions. The software code receives a series of images of motion by a subject, and for each image, uses the tracking module to determine locations corresponding respectively to two-dimensional (2D) skeletal landmarks of the subject based on constraints imposed by features of a hierarchical skeleton model intersecting at each 2D skeletal landmark. The software code further uses the tracking module to infer joint angles of the subject based on the locations and determine a three-dimensional (3D) pose of the subject based on the locations and the joint angles, resulting in a series of 3D poses. The software code outputs a tracking image corresponding to the motion by the subject based on the series of 3D poses.

  • Patent number: 10842683
    Abstract: Biodegradable facial pads for exfoliation purposes are disclosed. The facial pad includes a top layer and a bottom layer made of a hydro-entangled, non-woven fibrous material. A coarse fabric material that may have undulations to provide exfoliating effect is sandwiched between the top layer and the bottom layer. The coarse fabric layer is configured to provide stiffness to the pads so as to aid and facilitate exfoliation. The top layer, bottom layer and the coarse material layer are pinched together along the edges to form an exfoliating pad of specified weight. The top layer is configured to overlay the coarse fabric layer to incorporate the undulations in the coarse fabric layer. This may form exfoliating peaks and absorbent cotton valleys that are suitable for removal of dead cells from the skin when used for exfoliating purposes.
