Calendar Patents (Class 283/2)
  • Patent number: 10147062
    Abstract: Mechanisms are described for helping users manage their time and achieve predefined goals. One or more goals for a user may be received (e.g., from the user or some other source), and activities that the user performs over a period of time may be monitored, where the activities are informative regarding how the user is progressing towards the goal. A calendar entry may be determined based on the user's monitored activity, where the calendar entry is designed to help the user move closer to his goal. The calendar entry may be accepted or rejected by the user, and if accepted may be added to the user's calendar. In this way, the user's time may be optimized, and the user may be able to take defined steps towards his goal by taking the actions suggested.

  • Patent number: 9785119
    Abstract: A multiview 3D wrist watch includes clock circuitry to determine a time, and a plurality of light sources to generate a plurality of input planar lightbeams. A directional backplane having a plurality of directional pixels scatters the plurality of input planar lightbeams into a plurality of directional lightbeams. Each directional lightbeam has a direction and an angular spread controlled by characteristics of a directional pixel in the plurality of directional pixels. A shutter layer receives the time from the clock circuitry and modulates the plurality of directional lightbeams to generate a 3D time view.

    Abstract: An erasable loop scheduler with a board and a loop system is disclosed. The board has a first and second side, each having a viewing pane that displays a different portion of the loop system. The loop system includes a grid system that can be configured like a calendar. A user can write out a full month of dates and appointments on the first side of the board and another full month of dates and appointments on the second side of the board. Once a row of events has passed, the loop system can be advanced, at which point the row of past events moves to the second side of the board. The user may then erase that row of events and replace with upcoming dates and appointments. Alternatively, the user may keep the row of events for future reference.

  • Patent number: 8330988
    Abstract: A scheduling application prints a portable pocket sized hardcopy of information items such as scheduled items and task lists, and prints the information onto the pocket sized hardcopy in a consistent manner on each visible side of the hardcopy by rotating and inverting the printed material in anticipation of subsequent folding. The consistent manner encompasses inverting and arranging portions of the hardcopy along fold lines to enable folding that results in an upright orientation to the displayed text and figures. Conventional scheduling mechanisms are typically unwieldy to quickly initiate and enter a single item or entry. Electronic mediums need to be powered on, a keystroke, stylus, or pointing device sequence applied to access the corresponding scheduling or notepad application, and the information entered. Conventional paper mediums tend to be bulky and thus typically in a briefcase or purse, and often have binders or covers as well as page tabbing systems that need to be navigated.

The annual period so represented is divided up into 12 rectangles (each one containing 31 boxes).
