  • Publication number: 20190302443
    Abstract: An adapter may be used to couple an imaging device, such as a smartphone, to an optical device such as a telescope. The adapter may have an optical device mounting feature that mounts the adapter to the optical device, an imaging device mounting feature that mounts the imaging device to the adapter, and a positioning mechanism that adjustably positions the imaging device mounting feature relative to the optical device mounting feature. The optical device mounting feature may have a first arm, a second arm that is movable relative to the first arm to clamp a portion of the optical device between the first arm and the second arm, and a lock that can be actuated to restrict motion of the second arm away from the first arm. The positioning mechanism may be actuatable to move the imaging device, relative to the optical device, along three orthogonal axes.

  • Publication number: 20190251810
    Abstract: The invention disclosed here is a display system for managing power and security for a plurality of hand-held electronic devices sold to consumers in a retail location. The display includes features that allow power to be supplied to individual devices and security sensors without continuous hard wiring or multi-conductor retractor cables. The display also allows for individual security alarms to be triggered when a theft occurs. Security alarm conditions are preferably triggered via wireless signals.

  • Patent number: 10366180
    Abstract: A computer-implemented land planning system is designed to generate at least one conceptual fit solution to a user-defined land development problem. The system employs a computer readable medium and a computer program encoded on the medium. The computer program is operable, when executed on a computer, for electronically creating at least one candidate solution to the land development problem. The candidate solution incorporates engineering measurements applicable in development of an undeveloped land site, the land site including a conceptually designed vehicle parking area. A fitness function quantitatively evaluates the candidate solution based on its cost. A heuristic problem-solving strategy manipulates the engineering measurements of the candidate solution to achieve a more quantitatively fit solution to the land development problem. Documentation illustrating the fit solution to the land development problem is delivered to the user.

  • Publication number: 20130168527
    Abstract: The invention described here is an improved retail display. The display includes an anchored mount (“anchor”) attached to a base portion of a display stand or countertop surface. The display includes a clamshell holder that provides a security puck. The security puck is connected to an under-side surface of an electronic product offered for sale to the public. A coiled power cord interconnects the anchor and the puck and thus tethers the product to the display as it is lifted from and returned to the clamshell holder during the course of a consumer's examination of the product. The coiled power cord has a continuous spring steel coil embedded therein, which makes it difficult to cut the power cord.
