  • Patent number: 10376183
    Abstract: Systems and methods for detecting onset, presence, and progression of particular states, including intoxication, include observing eye movements of a subject and correlating the observed movements to known baseline neurophysiological indicators of intoxication. A detection system may record eye movement data from a user, compare the eye movement data to a data model comprising threshold eye movement data samples, and from the comparison make a determination whether or not intoxication or impairment is present. The detection system may alert the user to take corrective action if onset or presence of a dangerous condition is detected. The eye movements detected include saccadic and intersaccadic parameters such as intersaccadic drift velocity. Measurements may be collected in situ with a field testing device. An interactive application may be provided on a user device to provoke the desired eye movements during recording.

  • Publication number: 20050223903
    Abstract: A coffee filter ring that comprises a retaining ring adapted to fit within the coffee filter paper in the coffee basket of a conventional automatic drip coffee maker. The ring is sized and shaped so that it can be placed on top of a second filter paper and holds the second filter paper in place essentially sealing off the coffee grounds being held by the first coffee filter paper, thereby preventing the coffee grounds from spilling out of the coffee filter basket into the coffee pot while the coffee maker is brewing the coffee. The coffee filter ring is sized and shaped to fit the middle to lower portion of the filter basket and is split with an outward springing action to enable it to adapt to the size of the basket and conform to the coffee filter papers and coffee grounds as they become moist from the hot water from the automatic dripping system.

  • Patent number: 5801701
    Abstract: A computer method and system for interacting with a containee object contained within a container object. In a preferred embodiment of the present invention, the container object has a container application with a container window environment that has container resources for interacting with the container object. The containee object has a server application with a server window environment with server resources for interacting with the containee object. The method of the present invention displays the container window environment on a display device. A user then selects the containee object. In response to selecting the containee object, the method integrates a plurality of the server resources with the displayed container window environment. When a user then selects a server resource, the method invokes the server application to process the server resource selection.
