  • Patent number: 9662569
    Abstract: Software gaming applications may be written to accept an input from one or more standard controllers such a joystick with input buttons. However, multiple wearable sensors or hand held MID devices may enhance the gaming experience. These sensors may include devices such as accelerometers to detect movement of the extremity they are attached to and wirelessly communicate this information to a receiver. Embodiments are directed to using sensor fusion to combine sensor data from multiple wireless input devices, such as wearable sensors and MID devices together to form one logical input stream that is presented to an application and which the application sees are a standard controller.

  • Patent number: 8686921
    Abstract: In general, in one aspect, the disclosure describes an apparatus having a frame buffer having a first area allocated to buffer display information for content to be displayed on a local display. A frame buffer allocator is to dynamically expand the frame buffer to include one or more additional areas allocated to buffer display information for content to be displayed on one or more remote displays associated with one or more wireless devices. A dynamic geometry manager is to configure the one or more additional areas of said frame buffer. One or more remote-frame-buffer protocols are to transfer the display information from the one or more additional areas to the one or more wireless devices. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 8363586
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are disclosed for media access control (MAC) layer processing to support social networking and advertisements over the MAC layer of a local personal area network (PAN). An application interface permits a service category corresponding to the application to be selected, and further permits service announcements corresponding to the application to be advertised. Generator logic may generate the service announcements to be advertised. The MAC layer processor inserts the service announcements into beacons in the local MAC layer of the local PAN and also receives advertisements from other devices over the MAC layer of the local PAN. Monitor logic can monitor the MAC layer of the local PAN for advertisements corresponding to the selected service category. The monitor logic is also operatively coupled with the application interface for displaying advertised services corresponding to the selected service category.

  • Patent number: 8254995
    Abstract: A wireless device is disclosed. The wireless device includes a wireless communication module, a data storage module, and a controller for controlling the storage and/or retrieval of data from the data storage module. The wireless communication module communicates with each of a plurality of remote devices and the data storage module defines a first storage area and a second storage area. The controller controls the communication of data between the first storage area and the remote device, and the second storage area and the remote device dependent upon access rights associated with the remote device. The first storage area typically defines a public storage area with which data is exchanged in a relatively free manner, and the second storage area typically defines a private storage area with which data is exchanged in a relatively restricted manner.
