  • Patent number: 10959026
    Abstract: In some embodiments, an ear-mounted sound reproduction system is provided. The system includes an ear-mountable housing that sits within the pinna of the ear and occludes the ear canal. In some embodiments, the ear-mountable housing includes a plurality of external-facing microphones. Because the external-facing microphones may be situated within the pinna of the ear but outside of the ear canal, the microphones will experience some, but not all, of the three-dimensional acoustic effects of the pinna. In some embodiments, sound is reproduced by an internal-facing driver element of the housing using a plurality of filters applied to the signals received by the plurality of external-facing microphones to preserve three-dimensional localization cues that would be present at the eardrum in the absence of the housing, such that the housing is essentially transparent to the user. In some embodiments, techniques are provided for deriving the plurality of filters.

  • Patent number: 10922655
    Abstract: An information exchange platform referred to as a Trading Grid (TG) may perform relationship-based data processing utilizing a trading partner (TP) graph that describes relationships amongst operating units (OUs) on the TG. When the TG receives a request from an OU to exchange data with a TP, the TG accesses the TP graph and determines a relationship between the OU and their TP as reflected in the TP graph. The TP graph is maintained and controlled by the system independently of the OU and the TP. The TG may route the data based on instructions associated with the relationship that is reflected in the TP graph. The instructions associated with the relationship may specify network based services provided by the TG. An orchestration component may operate to orchestrate the performance of the network based services. The TG then communicates the processed and/or produced data to the TP.

  • Publication number: 20210022888
    Abstract: Disclosed is a finger prosthetic is provided that could be attached to an individual's hand. The finger prosthetic includes a midsection, a fingertip portion, and a ring. The midsection, the fingertip portion, and the ring could be 3D printed and customized via 3D scanning The finger prosthetic includes a torsion spring system that comprises a fabricated torsion spring, a cable, and a pin. When the individual flexes their PIP joint, tension is generated in the cable and the cable pulls on the prosthetic fingertip thus flexing the prosthetic DIP joint simultaneously. When the individual wishes to extend the prosthetic DIP joint, he/she simply extends the PIP joint, causing the torsion spring to extend the prosthetic DIP joint. When the PIP joint is at rest, the cable will release the tension and the torsion spring will cause the DIP joint to extend to its upright position.

  • Patent number: 10877622
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a computing system may access a first image and a second image of at least a common portion of an environment while a light emission with a predetermined emission pattern is projected by a projector. The first and second images are respectively captured by a first and a second detector that are respectively separated from the projector by a first and a second distance. The system may determine that a first portion of the first image corresponds to a second portion of the second image. The system may compute, using triangulation, a first depth value associated with the first portion and a second depth value associated with the second portion. The system may determine that the first and second depth values match in accordance with one or more predetermined criteria, and generate a depth map of the environment based on at least one of the depth values.

  • Publication number: 20200372690
    Abstract: A color blindness-simulating digital image is generated from an original digital image. Wireframe versions of the original digital image and the color blindness-simulating digital image can be generated. A comparison digital image between the color blindness-simulating digital image and the original digital image is generated, such as by comparing the wireframe versions of the original digital image and the color blindness-simulating digital image to one another. The comparison digital image is indicative of the extent to which a color-blind person is unable to distinguish features within the original digital image.
