  • Publication number: 20070267409
    Abstract: An assembled container for roasting food is placed on its side in a microwave oven so that the turntable of the microwave oven imparts tangential force, which the assembled container translates into motion to the food being roasted. The assembled container includes various shapes, such as a squat cup, a bowl, or an undulated structure. A reusable assembled container is formed from a suitable material so that it can be cleansed after usage for the next roasting.

  • Patent number: 4277855
    Abstract: A portable sauna is described, being formed in the shape of a sphere. A door leads into a spherical shaped room wherein a bench extends about a central circular floor. Above the bench is a loft lying adjacent a plane that passes through the center point of the spherical shape. The sauna may be selectively heated by any combination of heat lamps, dry heated air blower, and a steam generator, all of which operate on common household current. Water for the steam generator is supplied by a self-contained reservoir. Ventilation can be controlled by the occupant through a skylight ventilator or automatically through a valve mechanism interconnected with the blower. The valve mechanism is operable to recirculate room air or to receive indirect outside air into the room. Selectively controlled lighting and audio systems are also included to allow further control of the enclosed environment.

  • Patent number: 5069469
    Abstract: Recumbent cycle (12) is supported by a pair of forward steerable wheels (16) and a single rear drivewheel (18) mounted on rear end portion of a frame structure (14) by a hub assembly (50) having an integral transmission and brake. A pair of side-mounted gimbal assemblies (170L, 170R) may be conveniently tilted laterally to steer wheels (16) in the same corresponding direction. The gimbal assemblies (170L, 170R) may be individually or in unison tilted in the forward direction to actuate the brake of hub assembly (50). Frame structure (14) includes a forward beam (34) telescopically engaged within a main beam (32) to vary the distance between a crank assembly (28) and a seat (20) to accommodate riders of different sizes.

  • Patent number: 6436457
    Abstract: A microwavable package for roasting coffee beans in which the package is shaped to be relatively larger in two dimensions than in a third dimension so that it presents a generally flat appearance or configuration. The package comprises a paper outer layer and an inner layer that includes a microwave susceptor. On the interior of the package a filter is provided, and a vent permits communication between the interior and exterior. The outer layer may be variously, kraft paper, bond paper, or filter paper. The inner layer may comprise a printed dipole antenna or a thin film conductor. The vent may be at least one perforation through both the inner and outer layers or a series of perforations. In a preferred embodiment, the package includes supports for maintaining the package in a generally vertical orientation when it is placed in a microwave to roast the coffee beans contained therein.

  • Publication number: 20120034350
    Abstract: A roasting oven includes an enclosure coupled to a source of microwave RF energy, an operable door for sealing the enclosure for RF, the operable door having a viewing aperture which prevents the escape of RF from inside the chamber. A rotating support has an axis which is perpendicular to the viewing aperture such that the progress of roasting may be viewed through the viewing aperture and into a food container placed in the rotating support. The applied power of the microwave RF source and the rotational velocity of the rotating support are selected to provide uniform or wide spectrum roasting of the food item. A roasting profile may include a roasting interval during which the microwave RF source and rotating support are both energized, and subsequently a cool-down interval where the microwave RF source is disabled and the rotating support continues to rotate.

  • Patent number: 7426282
    Abstract: A head set speaker and stereo radio playing device exhibits improved harmonics and acoustic fidelity. A resilient and flexible headpiece is sized to fit behind the head of the user. Right and left device enclosures are carried by the ends of the headpiece, and are aerodynamic shaped to minimize wind whistle which may result when the head set is worn while moving rapidly. Right and left behind the ear flanges extend downwardly from a position adjacent to the ends of the headpiece, and aid in the positioning of the right and left ear device enclosures. In a typical application, the device enclosures are positioned immediately forward of the user's ears, allowing ambient sound to be heard. A speaker assembly and a removable battery assembly are carried within each device enclosure. The speakers are oriented within the device enclosures with the speaker magnet directed to, and in contact with, the head of the listener. This achieves two interrelated and significant structural and electronic advantages.

  • Patent number: 5565839
    Abstract: A preferred form of a battery-powered, portable flashing superluminescent light-emitting diode safety warning light 10 is described having a single SLD 40 mounted at a shallow angle of between 3 and 22 degrees on a reflective printed circuit board 54. The SLD 40 has a narrow optical band width that is directed to a thin right angle lens 24 that is mounted in a curved condition between sidewalls 16 and 18. The lens 24 has a smooth outer surface 62 and a grooved inner surface 64. The inner surface 64 has parallel "V" shaped grooves formed therein that form linear prisms 76 that extend in a curved contour between the sidewalls 16 and 18. The light 10 has a battery-powered electrical circuit 50 for pulsing the SLD 40 at a frequency of between 1 and 3 Hz and with a pulse width of between 10 and 50 percent of the frequency period. The electrical circuit 50 utilizes a NPN transistor 98 that is mounted backwards for turning the SLD 40 OFF and ON during the duty cycle.

  • Patent number: 4736195
    Abstract: In the method of the invention, a signal is injected into the power cord of an appliance and a reference voltage is set in response corresponding to a reference impedance at the point of signal injection. The reference impedance is present with the appliance connected to the power source. The reference voltage is continuously compared against a present voltage corresponding to present impedance at the point of signal injection. An alarm sounds if the present voltage changes to exceed the reference voltage, indicating a higher impedance because the appliance has been disconnected. In one embodiment, the apparatus includes an impedance bridge having an adjustable reference arm for producing a reference voltage corresponding to the impedance of the cord and appliance and a sensing arm for producing the present voltage. In a second embodiment, the apparatus injects an adjustable current into the power cord and appliance for a predetermined time to provide a present voltage.
