  • Patent number: 8439757
    Abstract: An entertainment device is configured to receive a limited range wireless signal from at least one other entertainment device when adjacently arranged in close physical proximity to at least one other entertainment device, and to responsively operate in a first mode or a second mode based on whether the other entertainment device is adjacent a first side or second side. In the first mode, the entertainment device initiates one or more wireless activation signals to control an audio/visual element of another entertainment device. In the second mode, the entertainment device receives wireless activation signals from another entertainment device to control activation of an audio/visual element of the receiving entertainment device. Each device is interchangeable between operation in the first mode of controlling at least one other entertainment device and the second mode of being controlled by another entertainment device based on position of one entertainment device relative to the other.

  • Publication number: 20110239505
    Abstract: A multi-panel display has at least two foamboard panels with a foam core and outer layers, and a web hinge connecting adjacent foamboard panels. The web hinge is secured to the respective edges of the adjacent panels with a web extending therebetween, the web offset from the outer layers of the panels to adapt the panels for bidirectional folding movement. One web hinge is a strip of flexible sheet material having marginal edges, received in slits in the foam cores of adjacent panels. The edges may be secured at time of manufacture or inserted by the user to connect selected panels. The web hinges may have an I-shape secured to edges of adjacent panels, or may have U-shaped flanges embracing edges of adjacent panels, with a web connecting the flanges.

  • Patent number: 8011994
    Abstract: An aspect of the present invention provides a toy assembly system comprising a central compartment configured to house a plurality of toy bodies, each toy body having magnetic hubs arranged in an outer region of the body. The system can include outer compartments that house ferromagnetic outer components (e.g., ferromagnetic spheres) separate from the toy bodies and a release mechanism configured to release during a single operation a single toy body and a set of outer components, wherein the single toy body and the set of outer components self-assemble and automatically align. Another aspect provides a toy track system comprising a launch portion configured to magnetically retain the magnetic vehicle in a launch position, a release configured to release the vehicle from the launch position, and a track portion coupled to the launch portion and configured to guide the released vehicle along a predetermined path.

  • Publication number: 20080252596
    Abstract: An interactive video display system allows a physical object to interact with a virtual object. A light source delivers a pattern of invisible light to a three-dimensional space occupied by the physical object. A camera detects invisible light scattered by the physical object. A computer system analyzes information generated by the camera, maps the position of the physical object in the three-dimensional space, and generates a responsive image that includes the virtual object. A display presents the responsive image.

  • Publication number: 20080092818
    Abstract: A thermally zoned substrate holder including a substantially cylindrical base having top and bottom surfaces configured to support a substrate. A plurality of temperature control elements are disposed within the base. An insulator thermally separates the temperature control elements. The insulator is made from an insulting material having a lower coefficient of thermal conductivity than the base (e.g., a gas- or vacuum-filled chamber).

  • Publication number: 20070181064
    Abstract: A plasma source assembly including an outer shield, a dielectric chamber wall, and a helical coil provided between the outer shield and the dielectric chamber wall. The plasma source assembly also includes a coil support assembly configured to facilitate repeatable performance of the helical coil. Preferably, the assembly includes a plenum cooling plate that is configured to supply cooling fluid to a first cooling rod provided within a resonator cavity defined by the chamber wall and the outer shield, and receive cooling fluid from a second cooling rod provided within the resonator cavity. The assembly preferably also includes a spacer provided between the first cooling rod and the second cooling rod, and coil insulators having holes configured to receive the helical coil.

  • Patent number: 7147793
    Abstract: An etch profile tailoring system (100), for use with an etching process carried out on a wafer (130), has a scavenging plate (170) with a baseline etch profile, and at least one etch profile tuning structure (such as a plug) (160) replaceably disposed with respect to the scavenging plate (170) and configured to alter the baseline etch profile during the etching process so as to arrive at a desired etch profile. A method of performing maintenance on an etch profile tailoring system (100) involves the steps of performing an etching process on a wafer in accordance with a desired etch profile, determining whether or not maintenance should be performed, and (if the maintenance decision indicates that maintenance should be performed) replacing with a second plug before conducting an etching process on additional wafers.

  • Publication number: 20060272920
    Abstract: A multi-stop mechanism for providing multiple stop positions between first and second objects that are movable into and out of contact with one another. The multi-stop mechanism of the present invention includes a housing which secures the multi stop mechanism to the first object and/or the second object, a rotatble shaft rotatably mounted to the housing, and plurality of stops located on the rotatable shaft. When the shaft is rotated within the housing, the stops are rotated to different positions relative to the housing. As such, the rotatable shaft positions one of the stops to contact the first or second object that the multi-stop mechanism is not attached to.
