  • Patent number: 10563069
    Abstract: Antibacterial coatings and methods of making the antibacterial coatings are described herein. A first branched polyethylenimine (BPEI) layer is formed and a first glyoxal layer is formed on a surface of the BPEI layer. The first BPEI layer and the first glyoxal layer are cured to form a crosslinked BPEI coating. The first BPEI layer can be modified with superhydrophobic moieties, superhydrophilic moieties, or negatively charged moieties to increase the antifouling characteristics of the coating. The first BPEI layer can be modified with contact-killing bactericidal moieties to increase the bactericidal characteristics of the coating.

  • Publication number: 20200049996
    Abstract: An electronic device may have a display that provides image light to a waveguide. First and second liquid crystal lenses may be mounted to opposing surfaces of the waveguide. An coupler may couple the image light out of the waveguide through the first lens. The second lens may convey world light to the first lens. Control circuitry may control the first lens to apply a first optical power to the image light and the world light and may control the second lens to apply a second optical power to the world light that cancels out the first optical power. Each lens may include two layers of liquid crystal molecules having antiparallel pretilt angles. The pretilt angles and rubbing directions of the first lens may be antiparallel to corresponding pretilt angles and rubbing directions of the second lens about the waveguide.

  • Patent number: 10560532
    Abstract: When direct communication between devices, such as via Bluetooth, is unavailable, a communication protocol is used by an initiating communication device and/or a recipient communication device to establish a communication session via a cloud-based relay server. This communication protocol efficiently allocates (or binds) the initiating communication device, the recipient communication device, and the relay server together for the communication session. The communication protocol may include handshaking messages that specify a transport type and channel used for connections in the communication session, as well as an address of the relay server. After the communication session is confirmed, the communication protocol allows the initiating communication device and the recipient communication device to share messages even when physically separated from each other.
