  • Publication number: 20230010645
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides systems and techniques for an electromechanical sear that is implementable in a gun. The gun may include a fire control manager, and the fire control manager may identify a trigger break based on a trigger sensor, transmit, based on the trigger break, a first signal to a first actuator located in a displacement path of a sear, so as to cause the first actuator to be displaced in a first direction, and transmit, based on the trigger break, a second signal to a second actuator located in the displacement path of the sear, so as to cause the second actuator to be displaced in a second direction. The transmitting the first signal to the first actuator and the transmitting the second signal to the second actuator may cause displacement of the sear and firing of the gun.

  • Publication number: 20220307787
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides systems and techniques for authenticating a user at gun. The gun may include an authentication manager capable of implementing logic, processing signals, or executing instructions. The authentication manager may receive first query data from a first authentication sensor of the gun, receive second query data from a second authentication sensor of the gun, perform an authentication procedure to determine whether the first query data or the second query data matches enrollment data, where a match is determined based on the first query data or the second query data and the enrollment data satisfying a similarity threshold. The authentication manager may determine that the user is authorized to operate the gun and transmit a signal in response to the determining that the user is authorized to operate the gun. The signal may cause the gun to enter an active state which allows the gun to be fired.

  • Publication number: 20220277508
    Abstract: A method, computer system, and a non-transitory computer-readable storage medium for performing primitive batch binning are disclosed. The method, computer system, and non-transitory computer-readable storage medium include techniques for generating a primitive batch from a plurality of primitives, computing respective bin intercepts for each of the plurality of primitives in the primitive batch, and shading the primitive batch by iteratively processing each of the respective bin intercepts computed until all of the respective bin intercepts are processed.

  • Publication number: 20220273437
    Abstract: A prosthesis includes a tubular graft, a prosthetic valve component, an inflow stent, an outflow stent, and a plurality of body stents disposed between the inflow and outflow stents. Each stent is a sinusoidal patterned radially-expandable ring having a first set of crowns and a second set of crowns, with the first set of crowns disposed closer to an inflow end of the tubular graft than the second set of crowns. The prosthesis is configured to be resistant to backfolding and/or buckling during deployment thereof.

  • Patent number: 11335052
    Abstract: A system, method and a non-transitory computer readable storage medium are provided for hybrid rendering with deferred primitive batch binning. A primitive batch is generated from one or more primitives. A bin is identified for processing the primitive batch. At least a portion of each primitive intersecting the identified bin is processed and a next bin for processing the primitive batch is identified based on an intercept walk order. The processing is iteratively repeated for the one or more primitives in the primitive batch for successive bins until all primitives of the primitive batch are completely processed. Then, the one or more primitives in the primitive batch are further processed.

  • Patent number: 10559165
    Abstract: Disclosed are an input/output structure, a gaming machine including such a structure and a method for use of the input/output structure. The input/output structure includes first and second chutes disposed beneath a surface of the input/output structure with an elongated output port configured to dispense a first ticket from a printer through the first chute and onto the surface and an elongated input port directly adjacent and generally orthogonal to the output port and coupled to the second chute to accept and lead at least one of currency or a second ticket into the second chute and further into a bill acceptor. The method includes the steps of dispensing a first ticket from the output port and onto the surface above the first chute and of accepting at least one of currency or a second ticket into the input port and then the second chute.

  • Patent number: 10169906
    Abstract: A system, method and a computer program product are provided for hybrid rendering with deferred primitive batch binning. A primitive batch is generated from a sequence of primitives. Initial bin intercepts are identified for primitives in the primitive batch. A bin for processing is identified. The bin corresponds to a region of a screen space. Pixels of the primitives intercepting the identified bin are processed. Next bin intercepts are identified while the primitives intercepting the identified bin are processed.

  • Patent number: 8105006
    Abstract: This is a stacker cart useful to collect a paper stack in a paper-handling system. The stacker cart has movables so that it can be moved into and out of a housing in the system. At a top section of the stacker cart is a transfer plate that receives the paper stack after processing, finishing, or marking. This transfer plate and the stacker cart have on their lower surface movables that allow both easy moving of the slidable plate off the stacker cart and easy moving of the stacker cart from one location to another. The transfer plate has at least one hook that is connected to a rope or for moving the transfer plate to a second surface. The movables used in both the transfer plate and the stacker cart can be wheels, slides, or bearings.
