  • Patent number: 10142496
    Abstract: A camera may capture real world content which may be displayed in a mobile device or glasses. This content may be modified in real time. The image capture of objects and transformation of those objects are displayed. The images obtained may be processed and changes may be enacted such that they are displayed virtually different than they are physically. Various micro-expressions and emotions may be detected by the facial expressions of a person. Digital notes may be saved and associated with objects. These notes and environments may be saved by a user and viewable by anyone in the geofenced area or all users. An individual may capture an image of an object using a mobile device/intelligent electronic glasses/headset, tap the object on the display screen, and write or speak notes regarding the object. A keyboard, keypad, image, icons, or other items may be virtually placed on to a surface.

  • Patent number: 10140514
    Abstract: Enable image based communication between mobile devices and servers. Propagating an image entity to a specific device/user and or to a plurality of devices/user enabling the people networks to be viable. The digital image entity comes into existence at a specified time, exists for a desired duration of time, and ceases to exist at a set time. A virtual network of people joined together for a specific purpose such as social networks, professional networks, enterprise networks, family networks, friends networks and other networks. Each user in such people networks has one or more profiles and is enabled to form multiple people networks. Each image entity each further comprises of one or more sub image entities that are connected to a specific image entity by their own sub relationships. The visual experience is formed by viewing a series of super images that are refreshed and updated at an optimal frequency.

  • Patent number: 9301237
    Abstract: Many concentric/overlaying networks exist in one or more wired or wireless networks simultaneously. The network box or mobile device may use one or more transmission protocols as deemed optimal and appropriate by the local server or the super server located in a LAN, WAN or the Internet. The units have the ability to multiplex between one or more transmission protocols. T/R may be located within or in close proximity to computer system to route the data. The software capability that is resident at the server level is capable of dynamically determining a number of factors for best data transfer, the best transmission frequencies and protocols, the best error correction and channel coding algorithms and multiplexes the transmission paths and tasks. Various optical and wireless protocols can co-exist in a network. Multiple communication environments are enabled by the data paths having devices such as CT/MDs, network switch boxes, and combinations.

  • Patent number: 9191083
    Abstract: Having a single channel for a transmit/receive (T/R) unit with a single antenna or a single processor would cause a limitation in data transfer rates, so multiple channels are provided. The single processor may have multiple channels for parallel processing of each data stream to process accurately two distinct signals that were more optimally received by two dedicated antennas and two separate T/R units contained within the cellular telephone/mobile wireless device (CT/MD) to improve performance and quality of output. An example is a CT/MD which is optimized for video and voice.
