  • Patent number: 10480733
    Abstract: Lighting systems, devices, methods and apparatus for simulating a candle flame are disclosed. The systems and methods employ spatially distributed, disjointed sets of light-emitting elements that are independently controlled with randomized control signals to simulate a candle flame by forming spatially and temporally varying lighting effects. Further, the disjointed sets are controlled such that the total light intensity is essentially maintained. In addition, systems and methods employ a transition probability model to adjust intensities of light-emitting elements in a way that accurately mimics a candle flame.

  • Patent number: 10358081
    Abstract: A wheeled vehicle and a wheel of the wheeled vehicle are provided. The wheel includes a wheel body with a light-emitting module. The light-emitting module includes an LED light bar, a flat mirror, and a two-way mirror. Both a mirror surface of the flat mirror and a reflective surface of the two-way mirror face the LED light bar. A transparent surface of the two-way mirror faces an outer side of the wheel. Looking through the transparent surface, one can see a black hole illusion that the LED lights extend indefinitely into the interior of the wheel, which makes the interior of the wheel appear a hollow visual effect to attract people's attention, thereby increasing the attractiveness of the product for consumers and enhancing the market competitiveness of the products.
