  • Publication number: 20080085049
    Abstract: A method that improves compensation for hard cuts and/or vertical motion effects in the conversion of 2D images to 3D images, displays 2D images to one eye and computed images to the other eye. Generating the computed images includes using an approximation variable that represents some relationship between the 2D images, such as the speed of motion across two images. Compensating for the hard cut or vertical motion effect includes temporarily setting the approximation variable to a value that makes the left and right eye images more similar (if identical, displaying a 2D image). The approximation variable can be pre-set to a value based on the speed of motion in a scene to be displayed. A method of displaying images in either 2D or 3D may include converting 3D images to 2D images by displaying images computed from images intended for either the left eye or the right eye.

  • Patent number: 7013722
    Abstract: A pressure gauge for determining air pressure of an inflatable item and a method of doing the same are provided. Embodiments of the present invention provide a source of light capable of providing more than one color of light, where each color of light within the more than one color of light corresponds to a numerical relationship between a determined pressure of an inflatable item, determined by the pressure gauge, and a target air pressure. The pressure gauge also has a display panel for displaying the determined air pressure and at least one of the provided colors of light. In addition, the pressure gauge has a pressure sensor for determining the determined air pressure and a computer defining functions performed by the pressure gauge, wherein the computer causes the source of light to display the different colors of light in accordance with the numerical relationship between the determined air pressure and the target air pressure.
