    Abstract: A multi-functional illuminator comprising a directional illuminator and a removably attachable optic. The directional illuminator is typified by a flashlight projecting light forward to illuminate an object in front of the flashlight. The present invention discloses an optic removably attached to the directional illuminator intersecting and redistributing the light emitted by the directional illuminator to provide illumination satisfactory for tasks not achievable with the directional light beam. The optic employs reflection, refracting and/or diffusing optics to efficiently redirect the light. The optic can be designed so that the redirected light is distributed throughout the hemisphere, concentrated about a plane perpendicular to the axis of the directed light beam or to effect any one of a plurality of possible illumination patterns. If the directional illuminator comprises a covert design minimizing its lateral visibility, the optic can change this characteristic making it highly laterally visible.

  • Publication number: 20130201666
    Abstract: A lighting system for illuminating the interior of a container, such as a purse, includes a light strip having multiple lights, a battery to power the lights, an ON/OFF switch to operate the lights, and a timer set to a predetermined time. Pressing the ON/OFF switch a first time activates the lights and starts the timer. Pressing the ON/OFF switch a second time while the timer is still activated will deactivate the lights. If the predetermined time elapses and the ON/OFF switch is not pressed a second time, the lights will deactivate automatically. The lighting strip is covered in a PVC protective coating and encased in a fabric encasement to match the interior of the container. The fabric encasement is stitched or otherwise fixedly attached to the interior of the container adjacent to the top opening of the container.

    Abstract: A multi-mode, multi-function marker/signaling device, capable of detachably mounting to helmets, has operating switches with positive visual and tactile cues located at opposing ends. A cover is attached to a base to provide a waterproof internal space. An electronic circuit board mounted within the waterproof space includes one or more visible and/or infrared emitters. Built-in programming provides user-defined and selectable modes of operation and multiple functions within those modes by means of serial manipulation of each switching means with a single digit. The emitters are multi-colored and/or infrared devices operating either steady ON, flashing, or coded flash, and are programmed to operate either independently or together. A replaceable battery provides power. A battery compartment is integral to and accessed from the underside (mounting surface) of the base.

  • Publication number: 20130170176
    Abstract: Liquid cooled LED systems are disclosed. Embodiments of the invention provide an LED lighting system in which the LED devices are cooled by circulating liquid or fluid. In example embodiments, a flow return member provides a way for a fluid medium to enter and exit an envelope containing the LED devices. An additional cooling mechanism, such as a radiator or thermoelectric cooler can be provided. The optically transmissive fluid medium can be, for example, oil or a fluorinated or halogenated liquid or gel, and can optionally provide index matching. The fluid medium can optionally include a phase change material in order to enhance cooling. In some embodiments, a pump is used to circulate the fluid medium. However, the optical envelope and/or the flow return member could also be oriented so that the fluid medium circulates by gravity and/or temperature difference.
