  • Publication number: 20150187339
    Abstract: In embodiments of previewing notification content, a computing device includes a display, a full-power processor, and a low-power processor that can present previews of notification content without utilizing the full-power processor. While the computing device is in a low-power state, the low-power processor can mask content retrieved from a buffer to expose a preview of the notification content. The preview of the notification content can then be presented via the display without waking the full-power processor from a sleep state.

  • Publication number: 20160037055
    Abstract: Techniques for capture of images of active subjects are described herein. In one or more implementations, a wearable device is configured to collect data regarding action of a subject associated with the wearable device during an activity. The wearable device then communicates with a user's mobile phone or other computing device to trigger image capture in accordance with trigger points defined for the activity. This may involve streaming collected data for processing by the capturing computing device to recognize the triggers and/or sending indications of trigger points that are recognized by the wearable device.

  • Publication number: 20150304785
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a housing and a user interface. The electronic device also includes an acoustic detector and one or more processors operable with the acoustic detector. The one or more processors can receive, from the user interface, user input corresponding to an operation of the electronic device. The one or more processors can then optionally initiate a timer in response to receiving the user input and monitor the acoustic detector for a predefined acoustic marker, one example of which is acoustic data indicating detection of one or more finger snaps. Where the one or more finger snaps occur prior to expiration of the timer, the one or more processors can perform the operation of the electronic device. Otherwise ignore the user input. The acoustic confirmation of user input helps to eliminate false triggers, thereby conserving battery power and extending run time.
