  • Patent number: 11980826
    Abstract: An infant play mat with a flexible central mat portion having a fabric surface that forms a first infant play area and including multiple flexible flaps extending from straight edges of the play mat. The infant play mat has a polygonal perimeter with multiple straight edges, with two of the edges defining a corner therebetween. Multiple flexible flaps extend from a respective one of the perimeter edges and define a fold line. Each flap has an upper flap surface exposed when the flap is extended, and hidden when the play mat is folded at the fold line to cover a region of the central mat portion. The central mat portion and lower surfaces of the flaps together form a second infant play area when the play mat is folded at all of the fold lines. Two of the flaps extend from the two edges to define the corner and are shaped such that, when overlaying the central mat portion, the two flaps do not overlap.

  • Patent number: 11925872
    Abstract: A video game includes a single player mode where completion of storyline objectives advances the single player storyline. The video game also includes a multiplayer mode where a plurality of players can play on an instance of a multiplayer map. Storyline objectives from the single player mode are selected and made available for completion to players in the multiplayer mode, and the single player storylines can be advanced by players completing respective storyline objectives while playing in the multiplayer mode. Combinations of storyline objectives are selected from pending storyline objectives for players connecting to a multiplayer game for compatibility with multiplayer maps. Constraints can be used to determine compatibility.

  • Publication number: 20230261937
    Abstract: A system for configuring a data center includes a fabric management server coupled to a management switch. A provisional Software Defined Networking (SDN) controller executing on the fabric management server can discover physical servers coupled to the management switch, receive network interface configuration information from the physical servers, and use the discovered network interface configuration information to determine a configuration for switches and servers coupled to an IP fabric. The configuration can be migrated to a full functionality SDN controller.

  • Publication number: 20230258784
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a system includes a signal generator operable to generate a control waveform, an optical splitter operable to split light among first and second optical paths, and a detector in optical communication with the first optical path and operable to provide reference for the control waveform generation of the signal generator via the light of the first optical path. The system also includes an optical switch operable to attenuate a portion of the light of the second optical path based on the generated control waveform to detect a dynamic range signal.

  • Publication number: 20220310350
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for improving thermal management strategies of a cathode assembly of an X-ray tube. In one embodiment, an X-ray tube comprises an anode assembly and a cathode assembly, wherein the cathode assembly includes one or more elements that include an internal porous section for controlling a flow of heat within the cathode assembly during operation of the X-ray tube. In this way, heat conduction to temperature sensitive aspects of the cathode assembly may be reduced, while enabling sufficient heat transfer to other parts of the cathode assembly to minimize deformation.

  • Patent number: 11453023
    Abstract: A cleaning device for use with an atomizer that applies paint to the surface of a component in a spray booth includes an external and internal surface in which a least a portion of one or more of the surfaces are coated with a conductive coating. This conductive coating comprises one or more fluoropolymers and may be static dissipative. The cleaning device further includes an exit port that has an aperture between about 2.54-7.62 cm located in the shroud of the device opposite the opening that receives the atomizer and near a bottom corner of the shroud. A kit used to retrofit existing paint spraying systems includes a fully assembled cleaning device and optionally, a regulator assembly capable of reducing the pressure of a cleaning fluid to about 80 psi. During installation, the regulator assembly is mounted external to the spray booth.
