  • Patent number: 10812707
    Abstract: A method includes selecting, by a first computing device having a camera function, one or more users in a capture field of the camera function. The one or more users is associated with a corresponding one or more other computing devices. The method further includes sending a haptic timer to the one or more other computing devices. The haptic timer alerts the one or more users to a countdown of when a photograph of the capture field will be taken. When an obstruction is not detected, the method further includes capturing the photograph when the haptic timer has expired and sending the photograph. The method further includes receiving feedback regarding the photograph and analyzing the feedback to determine whether a consensus has been reached. When the consensus has been reached, the method further includes providing follow-up options to the one or more other computing devices.

  • Patent number: 10809818
    Abstract: A digital pen with dynamically formed microfluidic buttons formed in variable positions on the digital pen comprises a pen body having a first end, a second end, and an external pen body surface. The pen tip attached or formed to the first end of the pen body. One or more sensors associated with the external pen body surface detect contact points where a user is holding the digital pen. The microfluidic buttons are formed via action of a microfluidic layer on the pen body in a vicinity of the contact points detected by the one or more sensors. A power source powers the digital pen. A communication module connects the digital pen to a software module. A software user interface associated with a processor maps computerized functions to the one or more microfluidic buttons and action of the pen tip to one or more functions.

  • Patent number: 10798037
    Abstract: A method and system for mapping media content is provided. The method includes detecting first media content being presented. The first media content is compared to second media content and similarities are determined. In response, are first electronic device is paired with a second electronic device and associated input content being inputted into a GUI is detected.

  • Patent number: 10783356
    Abstract: Aspects differentially drive the graphic display of links overlaid between people in a group photograph as a function of associated relationship type. Individuals are distinguished within the photograph and relationships are identified among the individuals that differ from one another with respect to type of relationship, by extracting relationship data via natural language processing relative to social network data of one or more of the identified individuals. Thus, a graphic display device is driven to display the identified relationships via each of different overlay elements that are depicted directly on the photograph, link respective ones of the identified individuals, and use different graphic elements to convey differences in respective types of the relationships that are determined among the identified individuals.

  • Publication number: 20200285246
    Abstract: Detecting potential safety issues is provided. An image is received from an imaging device located on a vehicle. The image is analyzed to identify an object. The object identified in the image is compared with images of objects stored in a database to determine a potential safety issue associated with the object. A set of protective roadway barriers is identified in an area of the vehicle and the object. An adjustment to operation of the vehicle is calculated based on the potential safety issue and the set of protective roadway barriers. The operation of the vehicle is adjusted based on the calculated adjustment.
