  • Patent number: 9990772
    Abstract: Technologies are generally described for methods and systems effective to produce an evaluation image. In some examples, a processor may receive initial image data generated by light reflected from an object, that corresponds to a real object at a first instance of time. The processor may apply a first skin to modify pixels of features in the initial image data to produce intermediate data and apply a second skin to pixels of features in the intermediate data to produce augmented data. The skins may modify pixels in image data. The processor may receive evaluation image data, used to evaluate execution of the first or second skin, that corresponds to the real object at a second instance of time. The processor may apply the first skin to the evaluation image data to generate evaluation data different from the augmented data.

  • Publication number: 20180132187
    Abstract: Technologies related to task management across low-power wireless communications are generally described. In some examples, proximal devices in range of low-power wireless communications may cooperate to allow one or more of the proximal devices to suspend task operations, while one or more of the proximal devices manage the task operations. The task operations may be associated with an energy consumption that exceeds an energy consumption associated with the low-power wireless communications, allowing the proximal devices that suspend task operations to reduce their overall energy consumption.

  • Patent number: 9965626
    Abstract: Technologies are generally described for systems, devices and methods effective to detect a potential attack on a memory of a memory device. In some examples, a processor may send a request to the memory device. The request may include a request for information that relates to memory writes to the memory of the memory device. The processor may receive a response from the memory device. The response may include the information that relates to the memory writes. The processor may determine, based on the response, an amount of memory of the memory device written to during an interval of time. The processor may detect the potential attack based on the amount of memory written to and based on the interval of time. The processor may then generate an alert based on the detection of the potential attack.

  • Patent number: 9953462
    Abstract: Technologies are generally described for systems, devices and methods effective to set up image data to be processed by an augmented reality device. In some examples, a processor may generate image data from light reflected from a real object. The image data may represent, or may be a digital representation of, the real object. The processor may analyze a skin stack of augmented reality skins and identify one of the augmented reality skins stored in the memory. The augmented reality skin may include instructions effective to modify some of the image data when the image data includes a feature. The processor may create metadata related to the image data. The metadata may relate to the presence of the feature in the image data. The processor may store the metadata in the memory.

  • Publication number: 20180064392
    Abstract: Technologies are generally described for detection of foot edema through in-shoe pressure sensors and analysis of detected pressure values. Multiple pressure sensors may be employed in contact with a foot. The pressure sensors may detect pressure generated on a surface of the foot by fluid accumulation within cells of the foot. A change in pressure may be monitored by analyzing pressure values received from the pressure sensors. In some embodiments, a pressure rebound curve may be determined while monitoring the change in the pressure. A comparison between a newly acquired pressure rebound curve and an established-normal pressure rebound curve corresponding to a healthy foot may be made. If the pressure rebound curve is determined to indicate a slower change (rebound) in detected pressure than a change in pressure indicated by the normal pressure rebound curve, the presence of foot edema may be inferred.

  • Patent number: 9865088
    Abstract: Technologies are generally described for systems, devices and methods effective to evaluate an augmented reality skin. In some examples, when an augmented reality skin, when an augmented reality skin is executed in a full mode, the augmented reality skin may produce a set of augmented data. The set of augmented data, when rendered, may produce a first set of media attributes related to execution of the augmented reality skin in the full mode. The augmented reality skin may be executed in an evaluation mode to produce the set of augmented data and to produce a set of preview data. The set of preview data may be rendered to display a second set of media attributes related to a preview of the augmented reality skin. A preview image of the augmented reality skin may include the first set and second set of media attributes.
