  • Patent number: 9426265
    Abstract: A system and its design variations use an innovative organic mirror tube to generate the flexible bending light and expose a multipurpose mobile projector. The goal has two folds: first, to provide the flexibility for wall projection angle, in order to ease the operation and second, to further create a foundation for potential naked eye 3D direct observations. The key component used is a silicon-based organic mirror, which can bend the light within the multiple layers of organic hydro gel. Different shaped optical pigtails are designed to match the multiple use cases. One of the many sample implementations using a flat mirror is described in details. The synthetic manufacture procedures are given in details.

    Abstract: This invention concerns a method for preventing and treating Colony Collapse Disorder, consisting in the use of an automated device that delivers a diet specifically calibrated for consumption by farm colonies of bees to be treated. The apparatus comprises a box-like container (10) accommodating in its interior at least one reservoir for liquid-tight, accessible from outside through a nozzle (4), an atomizing device of a liquid solution or suspension contained in the reservoir, means for the delivery (2, 1) of the liquid atomized solution or suspension into micrometric drops outside the apparatus, and a control unit programmed for timing the delivery of the solution or suspension to the outside, for the determination of the quantity of solution or suspension delivered and for emitting alarm signals in case of malfunction, the apparatus being powered DC with the energy supplied by a solar panel (5) located outside of the container.

  • Publication number: 20140199367
    Abstract: The present invention relates to liquid application for skin rejuvenation created from specific amino acids, lipids, nucleic acids and vitamins. This collection of molecules delivers precisely the factors necessary to a specific site requiring healing; a direct intervention system to most expeditiously remodel skin with building blocks. This delivery is a transdermal topical delivery and healing is via specific molecules that engender a false autocoid reaction rapidly followed by an incremental healing-anti-inflammatory response augmented by very specific GRAS ingredients in the invention and also recruited from the body to this needy site. Energy is brought to site by transdermally delivered protons and enhanced by the local vascular flow initiated by transdermal molecules. This delivery system bypasses digestion and dilution. Key is a lipophilic carrier with nuclear and mitochondrial ligands that rapidly penetrate and permeate all membranes and truncates the inflammatory site quickly manifesting curation.

  • Publication number: 20140186278
    Abstract: An anhydrous multiphase gel system consisting of an outer lipid matrix and an inner phase gelled by means of a polymer is described, which can be obtained by a) Melting the lipid phase with the formation of a liquid lipid phase, b) Mixing and homogenizing polymers or polymer blends capable of swelling with the formation of a polymer phase to be dispersed, c) Combining the polymer phase with the liquid lipid phase and homogenizing the phases, and d) Cold stirring the phase mixture until a solid gel-like mixed structure of the entire system is formed. The anhydrous multiphase gel system is particularly suitable for taking up difficulty soluble active substances in high concentration and for providing topical and transdermal applications. The described system is called an EDRS, “Entrapped Drug Reservoir System”.

  • Patent number: 8747817
    Abstract: A new skin care system includes day and night skin cream compositions comprising nutrients and antioxidants for use by children between six months and eighteen years of age. The day skin cream composition provides protection from UV radiation and the night skin cream composition contains no sun protection ingredients and elevated levels of nutrients and antioxidants. A child-friendly bottle for each composition can be used by young children without difficulty. A fragrance included in each composition is popular with children, and the bottle for the day composition has graphics indicating day-time use and the bottle for the night composition has graphics indicating night-time use. The day composition is applied topically each day to the face after tooth-brushing, and the night composition is applied topically to the face each night after tooth-brushing.
