  • Patent number: 10866412
    Abstract: A head-mounted display (HMD) system includes an optical arrangement; a first image panel, wherein the optical arrangement directs image light from the first image panel along a first optical pathway; a second image panel, wherein the optical arrangement directs image light from the second image panel along a second optical pathway different from the first optical pathway; and a third image panel and a fourth image panel, wherein the third and fourth image panels are spaced apart from each other and the optical arrangement directs light from the third image panel and the fourth image panel along different optical pathways. The optical arrangement is configured such that light from the first image panel and the third image panel are emitted from the HMD system in a combined fashion in a first eye direction, and light from the second image panel and the fourth image panel are emitted from the HMD system in a combined fashion in a second eye direction different from the first eye direction.

  • Patent number: 10791848
    Abstract: Sensory outputs are synchronized to input tempos for providing soothing and other effects for children and other persons. In example embodiments, juvenile products such as rockers and swings have motors that are controlled to produce an oscillatory motion with an adaptive tempo that is synchronized to rhythmic inputs such as a parent's heartbeat. In other example embodiments, juvenile products such as music players are controlled to output signals to play songs via speakers with an adaptive tempo that is synchronized to rhythmic inputs such as an infant's respiratory rate.

  • Patent number: 10558038
    Abstract: A head-mounted display (HMD) system includes an optical arrangement; at least one moveable image panel, wherein the optical arrangement directs image light from the moveable image panel along a first optical pathway; a fixed image panel, wherein a portion of image light emitted from the fixed image panel is combined with image light of the at least one moveable image panel by the optical arrangement; and an adjustment mechanism that is configured to adjust an interpupillary distance (IPD) of the HMD system by moving the optical arrangement and the moveable image panel relative to the fixed image panel between a first position and a second position corresponding to different IPDs. The adjustment to the IPD maintains the first optical pathway.
