  • Publication number: 20220004257
    Abstract: A headware for computer control includes a body portion. A first arm is pivotally coupled to the body portion and a second arm is pivotably coupled to the body portion. The first arm and the second arm define a central region therebetween. A pivoting mechanism is coupled to the first arm or the second arm and the body portion. The pivoting mechanism pivots the first arm or the second arm towards or away from the central region. The pivoting mechanism includes a pivot pin securing the first arm or the second arm to the body portion. A biasing member biases the first arm or the second arm toward the central region when the first arm or the second arm is pivoted away from the central region.

  • Publication number: 20060180834
    Abstract: A charge coupled device for detecting electromagnetic and particle radiation is described. The device includes a high-resistivity semiconductor substrate, buried channel regions, gate electrode circuitry, and amplifier circuitry. For good spatial resolution and high performance, especially when operated at high voltages with full or nearly full depletion of the substrate, the device can also include a guard ring positioned near channel regions, a biased channel stop, and a biased polysilicon electrode over the channel stop.

  • Publication number: 20060132780
    Abstract: A method and a low-cost, robust and simple system for remote sensing and analyzing spectral properties of targets as a means to detect and identify them is introduced. The system can be highly portable but is usable in fixed locations or combination thereof. An aspect of the method and system includes the capability to distribute, modulate, aperture and spectrally analyze radiation emitted or absorbed by a volumetric target chemical species (solid, liquid or gas) or a target surface. Radiation is first collected by a single light gathering device, such as a lens, telescope, or mirror, and then distributed to multiple detectors through spectrally discriminating components and if desired through apertures to achieve this desired detection and identification.

  • Patent number: 5838419
    Abstract: A method for treating refractive eye abnormalities, including myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism, by shifting the spectral distribution of incident light is described. Optical filters or tints are provided on eyeglasses, contact lenses, intra-ocular implants, or at ambient light sources to shift the spectral distribution of light entering the eye being treated. Ambient light sources emitting at specified spectral distribution or wavelength range can also be used. In this way, the average spectral distribution of visible light incident to an eye is controlled to treat refractive eye abnormalities. Changes in the eyeball shape and focus resulting from an eye's response to the spectral distribution of light are prevented, mitigated, halted, or even reversed. The visible spectral content is shifted to shorter or longer wavelengths over an entire field of view detected by the retina to treat myopia and hyperopia respectively.

  • Patent number: 5737761
    Abstract: A subsystem architecture for direct memory access of random access memory (RAM) which performs block transfers of adjacent units of memory from one memory location to another. The architecture comprises a RAM array with write enable capability, serial access memory (SAM) registers, an alignment unit, and controller. An embodiment is described which performs bit-block transfers (BitBLTs) of pixel data within a graphical user interface (GUI) subsystem which utilizes Triple-ported Dynamic RAM (TPDRAM). The BitBLT is broken up into four cycles which handle the transfer of all possible combinations of units of adjacent memory utilizing the entire bandwidth of the port writing to RAM. The architecture allows operations to be pipelined.

  • Patent number: 4236433
    Abstract: The guitar has a novel feedback arrangement for sustaining the sound generated from the strings and including a pickup associated with each string and a corresponding driver intercoupled with the pickup in a feedback loop that also includes a gain-controlled amplifier. The amplifiers are controlled in common from a variable control means. The pickups, drivers and associated electronics are all commonly mounted from the bridge. In an alternate embodiment of the invention there is provided an improved sustain technique that provides a more natural sustain characteristic, employing a parametric type of excitation. This embodiment may comprise a pickup, amplifier and tensioning member responsive to the output of the amplifier for sustaining string vibration by causing longitudinal string displacement by means of the tensioning member. In a similar embodiment the string tension may be held constant and the string length varied instead.
