  • Patent number: 10241127
    Abstract: A method, apparatus and computer program product are provided for collecting activity data with a removably attached mobile device. The mobile device may be moved to various holders configured to be used in different activities. The data is collected according to a determined activity. The start and end of a session is automatically detected based on connectivity to the holder. Metrics may be tracked for specific gear, as well as various spans of time such as sessions, seasons, and/or lifetimes. Milestones and highlights may be determined for various combinations of the various activities, gear and/or terms.

  • Publication number: 20190019497
    Abstract: Methods and systems for audio content production are provided whereby expressive speech is generated via acoustic elements extracted from human input. One of the inputs to the system is a human designating an intonation to be applied onto text-to-speech (TTS) generated synthetic speech. The human intonation includes the pitch contour and other acoustic features extracted from the speech. The system is designed to be used for, and is capable of speech generation, speech analysis, speech transformation, and speech re-synthesis at the acoustic level.

  • Patent number: 9507445
    Abstract: A method, apparatus and computer program product are provided to facilitate the display of data in conjunction with an image. In the context of a method, an image is caused to be presented and input is received via a rotatable dial wheel while the image is presented. The method also includes determining data to be presented based upon the input. In this regard, the method modifies the data to be presented in response so the rotation of the dial wheel. Further, the method causes the data that is determined based on the input to be presented concurrent with the image.

  • Patent number: 9429818
    Abstract: An accessory includes a body including a dial having a surface and multiple sets of optically-recognizable identification marks formed as part of the surface. The identification marks for each set are formed to be recognizable by a sensor having a two dimensional array of pixels. An apparatus includes a body comprising a groove having a first surface configured to align with a second surface of an accessory when a portion of the accessory is placed into the groove and a sensor formed in the first surface. The sensor includes a two dimensional array of pixels. An apparatus captures, with the sensor, an image of one of a set of multiple optically-recognizable identification marks formed as part of a surface of the dial, determines from the captured image a specific one of multiple possible accessories interchangeable for use with the apparatus, and performs configuration operation(s) based on the specific accessory.

  • Patent number: 9313401
    Abstract: A method comprising receiving video information from a camera module such that the video information has a first frame rate, determining that at least a part of an object of interest is represented in the video information within a frame rate designation region of the video information, causing configuration of the camera module to capture the video information at a second frame rate, receiving the video information from the camera module such that the video information has the second frame rate, determining that at least a part of the object of interest is unrepresented in the video information within the frame rate designation region of the video information, causing configuration of the camera module to capture the video information at the first frame rate, and receiving the video information from the camera module such that the video information has the first frame rate is disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20120290943
    Abstract: An apparatus, method, and computer program product are provided for distributively managing content between multiple user devices through the use of collaborative public display regions and/or designated private display regions. The apparatus may include a processor and a memory including computer program code. The memory and the computer program code may be configured, with the processor, to cause the apparatus to receive information regarding a detected device, provide for projection of a collaborative public display region that is shared with the detected device, receive input via a user's interaction with the collaborative public display region, and provide for transfer of the content based on the input received. Where a designated private display region is provided, input via a user's interaction with the designated private display region may be received, and the content may be displayed in the collaborative public display region based on the input received.
