  • Patent number: 11915341
    Abstract: In implementations of repeat object blending, a computing device implements a repeat object blending system, which is implemented to receive a digital image depicting a first object and a second object, where the first object is depicted as multiple instances of a repeated base object, and the second object is depicted as multiple instances of a visually different repeated base object. The repeat object blending system can identify visual characteristics of the first object and the second object. The repeat object blending system can then generate an intermediate object by blending one or more of the visual characteristics of the first object and one or more of the visual characteristics of the second object. The resulting intermediate object is a visual representation of the repeated base object blended with the visually different repeated base object.

    Abstract: Embodiments disclosed herein relate to a model for predicting the release profile of a controlled release device. The implant modeling system and models disclosed herein allow the accurate prediction of a release profile for a controlled release device based on features extracted from micro-resolution imagery. The models combine microstructural features that can be extracted at the XRCT resolution, including pore volume and connectivity, using erosion-dilation image analysis. This strategy allows prediction of release curves of the controlled release device using XRCT despite its resolution limitations.

  • Patent number: 11861787
    Abstract: Aspects relate to tracing rays in 3-D scenes that comprise objects that are defined by or with implicit geometry. In an example, a trapping element defines a portion of 3-D space in which implicit geometry exist. When a ray is found to intersect a trapping element, a trapping element procedure is executed. The trapping element procedure may comprise marching a ray through a 3-D volume and evaluating a function that defines the implicit geometry for each current 3-D position of the ray. An intersection detected with the implicit geometry may be found concurrently with intersections for the same ray with explicitly-defined geometry, and data describing these intersections may be stored with the ray and resolved.

  • Patent number: 11830199
    Abstract: Physical object boundary detection techniques and systems are described. In one example, an augmented reality module generates three dimensional point cloud data. This data describes depths at respective points within a physical environment that includes the physical object. A physical object boundary detection module is then employed to filter the point cloud data by removing points that correspond to a ground plane. The module then performs a nearest neighbor search to locate a subset of the points within the filtered point cloud data that correspond to the physical object. Based on this subset, the module projects the subset of points onto the ground plane to generate a two-dimensional boundary. The two-dimensional boundary is then extruded based on a height determined from a point having a maximum distance from the ground plane from the filtered cloud point data.

When the same or similar hosting environment is detected, the user interface elements are rendered based on the historical configuration data. For example, the last positions of windows in a particular monitor topology are stored as historical configuration data linked to that monitor topology. The windows are returned to their previous positions when a computing device is next configured with the same or similar monitor topology.

In some embodiments, a mapping is associated with a two-dimensional rendering that maps a potentially variable portion of the two-dimensional rendering to a canvas. The mapping is generated from a three-dimensional model of the potentially variable portion of the two-dimensional rendering. The potentially variable portion of the two-dimensional rendering is dynamically modified according to the mapping to reflect content comprising the canvas or edits received with respect to the canvas.

  • Patent number: 11663774
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses and methods may provide away to render edges of an object defined by multiple tessellation triangles. More particularly, systems, apparatuses and methods may provide a way to perform anti-aliasing at the edges of the object based on a coarse pixel rate, where the coarse pixels may be based on a coarse Z value indicate a resolution or granularity of detail of the coarse pixel. The systems, apparatuses and methods may use a shader dispatch engine to dispatch raster rules to a pixel shader to direct the pixel shader to include, in a tile and/or tessellation triangle, one more finer coarse pixels based on a percent of coverage provided by a finer coarse pixel of a tessellation triangle at or along the edge of the object.

  • Patent number: 11627102
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for providing messaging participant identity leak prevention. An example methodology implementing the techniques includes, receiving, by a computing device, a message from a sender to a recipient via a software application running on the computing device, the software application having a non-confidential messaging view and a confidential messaging view. The method also includes determining a message type of the message, the message type is one of a non-confidential message or a confidential message, and displaying the message in the confidential messaging view of the software application in response to a determination that the message type indicates a confidential message, the confidential messaging view being distinct from the non-confidential messaging view, wherein messaging participant identity information is obfuscated in the display of the message in the confidential messaging view.

  • Patent number: 11625158
    Abstract: A method for displaying simulation images through clicking and rolling operations is provided. A client device executes an application program to display a carrying object on a display unit. Then, the application program generates a click event at the carrying object according to the client device and produces the corresponding event result by displaying at least one structural object on the carrying object. When the click event ends, at least one template object is loaded. The client device then rolls and thereby removes the carrying object such that the at least one structural object is superimposed on the template object to complete a superimposed display.

  • Patent number: 11562526
    Abstract: Aspects relate to tracing rays in 3-D scenes that comprise objects that are defined by or with implicit geometry. In an example, a trapping element defines a portion of 3-D space in which implicit geometry exist. When a ray is found to intersect a trapping element, a trapping element procedure is executed. The trapping element procedure may comprise marching a ray through a 3-D volume and evaluating a function that defines the implicit geometry for each current 3-D position of the ray. An intersection detected with the implicit geometry may be found concurrently with intersections for the same ray with explicitly-defined geometry, and data describing these intersections may be stored with the ray and resolved.
