  • Publication number: 20200145574
    Abstract: A wearable digital video camera (10) is equipped with wireless connection protocol and global navigation and location positioning system technology to provide remote image acquisition control and viewing. The Bluetooth® packet-based open wireless technology standard protocol (400) is preferred for use in providing control signals or streaming data to the digital video camera and for accessing image content stored on or streaming from the digital video camera. The GPS technology (402) is preferred for use in tracking of the location of the digital video camera as it records image information. A rotating mount (300) with a locking member (330) on the camera housing (22) allows adjustment of the pointing angle of the wearable digital video camera when it is attached to a mounting surface.

  • Patent number: 7991720
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for organizing information in a computer filing system. The method and apparatus include the creation of a pile comprising a collection of documents and displaying a graphical representation of the collection of documents. The method and apparatus further include browsing the collection of documents by pointing a cursor at a particular item in the collection of documents to reveal an indicia for the particular item in the collection of documents. The filing system can automatically divide a pile (e.g. a collection of documents from an electronic mail network) into subpiles on the basis of the content of each document in the pile, and the filing system, at the user's request can automatically file away documents into existing piles in the computer system on the basis of a similarity match between the content (or other internal representation) of the document and the content (or other internal representation) of existing piles in the computer system.

  • Patent number: 5799280
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for marking audio data as it is recorded, and a user interface for the audio data in a computerized system, is disclosed. A recorder, such as a tape recorder, having a plurality of marker buttons is provided. The audio data is recorded on one channel of a magnetic tape. Any time one of the marker buttons is pressed, a distinct tone is recorded on another channel of the tape as a marker. The audio data and markers are then transferred to the computer system. The user interface provides a graphical display of the audio data, and provides graphical markers which correspond to the marker buttons on the recorder. The audio data can be accessed at any random point, including a point marked by a marker. Without changing modes, a user can access the data at any random point, stop play, select a new point to initiate playback and restart playback, and change the speed of playback.
