  • Patent number: 11373368
    Abstract: Two-dimensional aerial images and other geo-spatial information are processed to produce land classification data, vector data and attribute data for buildings found within the images. This data is stored upon a server computer within shape files, and also stored are source code scripts describing how to reconstruct a type of building along with compiled versions of the scripts. A software game or simulator executes upon a client computer in which an avatar moves within a landscape. A classifier classifies a type of building in the shape file to execute the appropriate script. Depending upon its location, a scene composer downloads a shape file and a compiled script is executed in order to reconstruct any number of buildings in the vicinity of the avatar. The script produces a three-dimensional textured mesh which is then rendered upon a screen of the client computer to display a two-dimensional representation of the building.

  • Publication number: 20220034819
    Abstract: An ion-jet electron-entangled pathogens analyzer imprinted on a test strip resembles the functionality of a scanning tunneling microscope as a hand-held device, to quickly detect pathogens in water and food products on their bioelectrical signature. The use of such a device does not require special training or preparation. The test strip consists of an integrated circuit which gets energized and communicates over a weak alternating electric field provided by a matchbox-sized base station, which also contains a trained machine learning module of bioelectrical pathogen signatures. The base station connects wirelessly to smart devices or networks for further processing or recording the measurement results in a blockchain. The base station can be worn as a smartwatch or attached to processing machines, transportation vehicles, warehouses, shelves and grocery stores.

  • Publication number: 20210275077
    Abstract: Disclosed is a novel hybrid of a device combined with independent integrated multi sensing automats that measures up to 64 different vital signs simultaneously and battery free(!). This device includes a glue-free suction patch, easy to attach to a patient's neck, wrists, temples (or selected body parts, if required). A base station contains electronic parts that provide a weak alternating electric field (AeF), which propagates over the patient's skin with no harm, to power and communicate with the suction patch. The electric field is bi-directionally data-modulated (proprietary phase-duplex) while remotely powering the chip at the same time. The suction patch gets a sequence from the base station to create desired vital signs sensors temporarily on-the-fly and sends the digitized sensing values radiation-free(!) continuously to the base station, which wirelessly connects to networks, computers, SmartDevices and applications.

  • Patent number: 11093042
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system for allowing users to capacitively interact with objects using gestures in an environment. The system includes a smart sense unit for communicating gesture information and a smart sensing master unit is capacitively coupled to the smart sense unit for identifying the received gesture information and identification information from the smart sense unit to operate the object. The gestures may either be 2D, 3D, multiple 2D or 3D gestures from different users or different body parts. The smart sense unit identifies the change in a provided electric field caused by the user and the object and converts into a digital value. The smart sense unit further identifies the location of the object and the user and further communicates the information to the smart sensing master unit. The smart sensing master unit identifies the gesture and the identification information to interact with the object on receiving the impedance changes forked out from a resonator.

  • Publication number: 20210154161
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods, compositions, devices, and kits for treating cystinuria and related disorders, in which bucillamine is administered to a patient according to a modified-release strategy that releases bucillamine, preferably in the stomach, in critically-spaced, repeated pulses over time, to provide lower peak plasma levels of total bucillamine, but consistently higher free drug levels in urine, for binding cystine. In particular, use of the present modified-release formulations and systems reduce side effects of bucillamine and achieve efficacy with less frequent administrations and/or lower dosage than immediate-release forms.

  • Patent number: 10833732
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system which extends NFC near field communication over a user's skin by converting electromagnetic signals into modulated alternating electric fields and vice versa. A modified patch is attached to an NFC device, which gets energized from its electromagnetic resonance which may contain data. The patch uses the energy to create an alternating electric field which couples into and spreads over a user's skin. The user may approach or touch objects which then get energized by the alternating electric field. The objects have a tag which modulates the electric field with data back over the user's skin to the patch, which then demodulates the data to modulate the NFC communication of the NFC device for further processing.
