  • Patent number: 9933985
    Abstract: Various arrangements are presented to facilitate the handoff of presentation of content between a head mounted display (HMD) and another presentation device, such as a television. For example, based upon separate events, video and audio being presented to a user via a presentation device may be handed off to an HMD that the user is wearing for continued presentation. In response to a first reference event occurring, the HMD may initiate continued presentation of the video content that was being viewed by the user on the presentation device. At a later time, in response to a second reference event, the HMD may initiate continued presentation of the audio content.

  • Patent number: 9900039
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein provide a method for scheduling background processes. The method begins when a task scheduler requests a SAR severity level from the application processor. The application processor then requests the SAR severity level from the modem. Upon receipt of the SAR severity level the task scheduler then determines if the SAR severity level is high. If the SAR severity level is high, the task scheduler waits a predetermined time and then requests a further SAR severity level. This process continues until the SAR severity level returned in within a normal level. At that time, the background process is scheduled. This prioritizes transmission. The apparatus includes a task scheduler in communication with an application processor and a modem in communication with the application processor. The task scheduler may include a memory and a timer.

  • Patent number: 9830536
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and devices of the various embodiments enable advertisements (e.g., promotions, signs, logos, samples, etc.) to be part of the 3-D printing process. In an embodiment, advertisements (i.e., “ads”), such as partial product samples, may be 3-D printed prior to 3-D printing a purchased 3-D printable good. In another embodiment, ads may be 3-D printed on a 3-D printable good itself (e.g., embossed, impressed, as a tag, etc.). In a further embodiment, users may select the ads to be 3-D printed on their goods in return for compensation from advertisers.
