  • Patent number: 10948166
    Abstract: Hinge devices couple light source units to a base such that the light source units are rotatable around first axes. Each light source unit is rotatable between a first position and a second position around a corresponding first axis of the first axes. Rotation mechanisms couple the light source units to the hinge devices such that the light source units are rotatable around second axes transverse to the first axes. The hinge devices are configured such that when each light source unit rotates from the first position to the second position, rotation directions of the light source units are different. The rotation mechanisms define rotation ranges of the light source units around the second axes to achieve a reference state where the light source units are collected together and light-outgoing surfaces of the light source units face outward when each light source unit is in the first position.

  • Patent number: 10639532
    Abstract: A precision ball-handling training tool develops accuracy and proficiency in basketball control of an athlete performing no-look dribbling of a basketball. A non-opaque tubular member terminating in a body member forms a ring having a perimeter that defines an open space inside the perimeter. A light source is positioned within the tubular member to emit light from and along its length. The emitted light is sufficiently intense to be perceived by the athlete performing no-look dribbling of the basketball within the open space. Opposed light beam switch components positioned at the perimeter of the ring define a line-of-sight across the open space. Power supply and processor circuitry contained in the body member responds to instances of a basketball obstructing the line-of-sight during a basketball dribbling exercise by causing momentary light emissions from the light source to indicate whenever the athlete dribbles the basketball within the open space of the ring.

    Abstract: An illumination device includes one or more light-emitting elements (LEEs) arranged to provide light; a light guide includes a receiving end and an opposing end, the receiving end being arranged to receive the light provided by the LEEs. The light guide further includes a pair of opposing side surfaces extending along a length of the light guide between the receiving and opposing ends. The light guide is configured to guide the received light in a forward direction, along the length of the light guide toward the opposing end, and transmit a first portion of the guided light into ambient through one or more of the opposing side surfaces as sideways leaked light. The illumination device further includes an extractor located at the opposing end and configured to output into the ambient a remaining portion of the guided light—that reaches the opposing end—as output light in backward directions.

  • Patent number: 10228102
    Abstract: A light-emitting birdbath basin having a body and a light-emitting body. A bottom portion of the body protrudes inwardly into the body to form a chamber. The light-emitting body is provided inside the chamber. Chamber walls of the chamber are formed as a first luminous body which is translucent. Lights emitted by the light-emitting body may brighten the hollow chamber to form a luminous chamber, and be configured to converge and focus on the surfaces of inner walls of the body after passing through the first luminous body. The basin-shaped body is placed outdoors. Water and bird food can be held in the basin. In daytime, the light-emitting body does not light up. Birds can clean their feathers and peck at the bird food in the basin, which is environmentally friendly and energy saving.
