  • Patent number: 12002055
    Abstract: A system delivers access to remote resources and remote data across geographic regions through a parallel circuit that transfers data between components. The system includes a volatile memory and processors that read to and write to the volatile memory. A computer readable medium storing a program in a non-transitory media provides access to remote resources locally by processing requests received from different computer devices remote from the processors from a publicly accessible distributed network that is addressed by a single address. The system generates routing commands based on a content of a payload, a protocol used to deliver the data, and detections of data types. The system routes requests from different computer devices remote to the processors to intended devices based on the single device address. The different computers includes physical devices and endpoints that sever a plurality of entry points for accessing a cloud.

  • Patent number: 11933992
    Abstract: A liquid lens can tilt a fluid interface, such as for optical image stabilization or off-axis focus. Tilting the interface can cause coma aberration or other dynamic wavefront error. The liquid lens can be driven to reduce the coma aberration or other dynamic wavefront error. For example, input shaped signals can be used. In some cases, the signals can be overdriven and/or underdriven, which can increase response time, and/or encourage settling of the interface.
