  • Patent number: 11518069
    Abstract: A method of fabricating a casting, the method including applying a substrate to a sacrificial mold, the sacrificial mold including a shaped non-planar receiving surface to receive the substrate and provide a casting of the substrate having a shaped structure corresponding to the receiving surface; and subjecting the sacrificial mold and casting to freeze drying conditions and sublimating the sacrificial mold from the casting to form a cast article including the shaped non-planar structure.

  • Patent number: 11511942
    Abstract: Systems for automatically leveling a base frame of a bulk material transport conveyor include radial travel wheels mounted on generally opposing sides of the base frame that can move from a raised position above the ground to a lowered position in contact with the ground to permit radial travel of the conveyor. Actuators normally used to raise or lower the radial travel wheels may be actuated automatically by a controller in response to a signal from an inclination and/or limit sensor mounted on the conveyor that represents a non-level orientation of the conveyor, to level the base frame.

  • Patent number: 11461630
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and techniques for extracting user body shape (e.g., a representation of the three-dimensional body surface) from user behavioral data. The behavioral data may not be explicitly body-shape-related, and can include shopping history, social media likes, or other recorded behaviors of the user within (or outside of) a networked content delivery environment. The determined body shape can be used, for example, to generate a virtual fitting room user interface.

  • Publication number: 20220098281
    Abstract: A method of healing a wound including contacting a wound edge with a tropoelastin or elastin derived peptide in conditions for enabling a sustained contact of the tropoelastin with the wound edge for a time period for enabling re-epithelialization of the wound.

  • Publication number: 20210353825
    Abstract: Tissue repair and restoration can be performed using an elastic material formed from tropoelastin. The elastic material can be formed by providing a solution of tropoelastin monomers, applying the solution to a surface, and heating the solution on the surface in absence of a cross-linking agent to enable the tropoelastin monomers to bind to each other to form an elastic material that does not dissociate into tropoelastin monomers when the elastic material is contacted with an aqueous solution.

  • Publication number: 20210264484
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure provide a number of advantages and improvements over conventional electronic bill payment systems. Among other things, embodiments of the disclosure may be used by parties to electronic payments (e.g., payers and payees) to identify the status of payments in real time or near-real time. A predictive model may be used to determine the success rate/average time for processing payments based on past behavior of a particular payer or group of payers. Additionally, embodiments of the disclosure may be used to help facilitate the acceleration or extension of payments based on a payee's current cash flow needs.

  • Patent number: 10529179
    Abstract: An electronic gaining system moderates payout rates by the processor randomly providing a first random outcome which determines whether the wager is initially resolved by the processor as a winning outcome, tie outcome or losing outcome. The processor recognizes specific ones of, but less than all of the tie outcomes and/or the losing outcomes as belonging to a provisional subset of the outcomes and/or losing outcomes. The processor recognizes a random outcome as within the provisional subset, the processor randomly selecting from among multiple additional outcomes stored in memory for at least individual ones of random outcomes within the provisional subset, and randomly selecting a final random outcome for the at least individual one of the random outcomes within the provisional subset from a second set of random outcomes that includes at least one winning outcome, and resolving the wager on the basis of the final random outcome.

  • Publication number: 20190275204
    Abstract: This invention provides a method for producing a device having elastic fiber arranged thereon. The method includes maintaining a cell culture including cells (for example, fibroblasts), cell medium and tropoelastin in conditions enabling the cells to form elastic fiber from the tropoelastin, and contacting a device with the cell culture to enable elastic fiber formed by the cells to be deposited onto the device, thereby producing a device having elastic fibers arranged thereon.
