  • Publication number: 20190056092
    Abstract: A linear array of electric lights is housed in a wooden rod with one side having a light diffuser and the light being otherwise contained in the housing. The bulb or LEDs are wired along with a switch to an AC power supply. A base plate having a small preferably rectangular footprint and an asymmetric located aperture secures and holds one end of the rod therethrough and at an angle to the floor. The aperture of base plate is shaped and of slightly greater dimensions as the cross sectional shape and dimensions of the housing. The rod is held in the aperture to provide a linear array of angled light. The aperture is lined with a plastic snap-in insert. A knuckle is provided to hold several housings. Male and female jacks are provided to electrically connect components. In the knuckle, the male jacks are slightly movable across the longitudinal axis of said wiring for said male jacks.

  • Publication number: 20160068304
    Abstract: A container assembly that includes a first container having a body with an opening at the top side of the first container and a connection extension at the bottom side of the first container; a second container having a body with a respective opening at the top side of the second container and a respective connection extension at the bottom side of the second container; and a connection band having a top side and a bottom side, and at each side, a connector mechanism for releasably holding at least one of said first and second containers and the connection band being further configured to enable releasably holding said containers in a bottom to bottom configuration. Preferably, the connection band has an outer peripheral circumscribing vertical wall surrounding an interior space which contains flanges that engages the connection extensions of the containers.

  • Patent number: 8684230
    Abstract: A collapsible container for dispensing viscous materials has a bottle section with exterior screw threads and a cap element with nozzle aperture and internal, mating yet greater in density screw threads so that relative turning of the bottle section with respect to the cap section causes dispensing of material and collapsing of the bottle section into the cap element. The exterior screw threads are provided with uniformly spaced surface discontinuities. The cap element is provided with a resilient, inwardly directed tab which glides over the exterior edge of the screw threads of the bottle section as the bottle section is rotated with respect to the cap element until the tab aligns with a discontinuity thereof which causes an audible or tactile click to be sensed for ensuring uniformity and ease of exact dosing.

  • Publication number: 20130345860
    Abstract: A vending system comprising numerous remote vending machines, retail displays, and automated retail stores connected to a communication network access a central database so that each remote machine provides and responds to personalized customer information. Each machine comprises a display containing products to be vended and a plurality of touchable product viewing areas for initiating a vend. A computer recognizes customer data derived from peripheral inputs. Software communicates with the database for establishing customer profiles and either recognizing customers or registering customers by generating a global unique identifier. Subroutines initiate the dispensing of items in response to preselected conditions associated with each GUID.

  • Publication number: 20130335353
    Abstract: Vending machines, automated retail stores, and retail displays with a computer controlled, activation system that senses either the gesture of a customer proximate product display tubes or a touch-screen selection on a computer screen. Item-based lighting produces variable visual effects in conjunction with actual or potential vends to provide an enhanced vending experience. Offered products are stored within display tubes that are arranged in orderly geometric arrays. RGB lighting through a plurality of LED banks associated with each display tube are controlled by the activation system Combinations of differently colored LED's are computer controlled on a per product basis to artistically illuminate available products and assist easterners. Pre-programmed lighting sequences can switch LEDs off and on, vary their intensity, and alter resultant colors.

  • Patent number: 8392019
    Abstract: A vending arrangement for computerized vending machines, retail displays, automated retail stores, utilizes a centralized, robotic gantry associated with companion modules for vending a plurality of selectable products. The modularized design enables deployment of half-sized or larger, full sized machines. The robotic gantry is deployed in a centralized module disposed adjacent display and inventory modules. Inventory modules can be fitted to both gantry sides, and doors can be fitted to the gantry front or rear. The gantry comprises an internal, vertically displaceable elevator utilizing a central conveyor for laterally, horizontally moving selected items from associated display and inventory positions to a vending position. Computerized software enables the display and vending functions, and controls elevator movement to dispense products from twin sides of the gantry by appropriately controlling the conveyor.

  • Patent number: 8376135
    Abstract: An apparatus for adding a secondary substance to a primary liquid within a sealed container, for example, a shot of liquor to be added to a can of soda. A secondary container contains the secondary substance preferably a liquid and has a frangible seal. A mechanism sealingly and mechanically attaches the secondary container to the hull of a primary container having primary liquid. A frangible seal is provided to the secondary container. A penetrator is disposed at least partially within the housing of the secondary container and is at least partially surrounded by the attachment mechanism. The penetrator causes rupture of the seal and mechanically penetrates through the hull of the primary container. The substance from the secondary container mixes with the liquid of the primary container. The secondary container may attach to the top, side, or bottom of a conventional primary container, a soda can.

  • Patent number: 8302803
    Abstract: A device for selective attachment to a conventional aluminum beverage can with internal liquid-holding pouch. A flavoring, alcohol based, energy drink, a medication, etc. can be contained in the device and mixed with the liquid contained in beverage cans. With the device atop a can and the device and can opened, tilting and pouring the liquid of the can causes liquid within the device to be dispensed and entrained into the stream of the liquid exiting the beverage can. A mixed drink can be provided comprised of the first liquid of the device and the second liquid provided by the can. Substantially uniform concentration of the two liquids is maintained from start to finish. Mixing occurs on an incremental basis and there is no substantial mixing of liquid from the device within the chamber of the can or from the liquid of the can within the cavity/pouch of the device.
