I can see the requirement spec now:

"I want to be able to search through a stack of 'stuff' on my PHYSICAL desktop without having to move papers around. Oh, and it would be nice if I didn't have to type anything, if voice input would work".

Say you have a rolltop desk with lots of pigeon-holes, that you use CONSTANTLY. And they're kinda "full" of 'stuff'. FINDING things becomes an issue.

Use a sensor device which is able to SEE your desktop pigeon holes. Have a microphone tasked with listening to you verbally describe objects (like "water bill", "check from client XYZ", "skate keys", "invitation to the party", etc) while the sensor device TRACKS where you put the ...

The ABC board is an educational communication aid for children or young adults who have communication difficulties or special needs. To use you simply place a letter, number, makaton symbol or icon tile on the ABC board within the raised grid and press the talk button. The ABC board will then say what you have put down.

Since the invention of the Cassegrain Telescope in 1672 by the French sculptor Sieur Guillaume Cassegrain, the Cassegrain Telescope has evolved into various derivative designs such as the more popular Ritchey-Chrétien, Dall-Kirkham, Schmidt-Cassegrain, and Maksutov-Cassegrain. The designs have gained their popularity because of their compact and simple to produce design. With different designs, star collimation is and has always been the only effective collimation method for Cassegrain telescope owners.

Now, both the professional and amateur astronomers have an alternative to achieving excellent collimation conveniently using the Advanced Cassegrain Telescope Laser Collimator. The Advanced CT Laser Collimator brings the collimating star to your telescope within arm reaching distance. With its short range calibration capability, you can perform collimation indoors - ...

All-Seasons Body Cooling/Warming Vest is a special product designed to counter the harmful effects of hot or cold weather stress, lowering or increasing skin temperature, which in turn stabilizes the core body temperature. This allows a person to stay cool or warm and sustain the peak performance levels for much longer.

Current products are based on a cooling method (e.g. evaporative) , or on an warming method (e.g. electric) , not both in the same product.

Novel vest is based on well-known principle of the heat pump which is used for this application: a heat pump works by driving a working fluid or refrigerant around a refrigeration circuit containing four elements, [see Fig.1], (1) evaporator, (2) compressor, (3) ...

The present invention is a specialized container using a novel flexible gate system incorporated into the throat (or ingress/egress passageway) of a container for restricting (or controlling) fluid flow (or access) when the container is inverted. Enviromentally Safe Packaging Technology.

Unlike other oil containers, the present invention would not require the use of a funnel and will provide an economical, simple and safe means to invert the container to pour out its contents without spilling its contents. The present invention also provides restricting means that are built into the container during its molding and/or manufacturing process minimizing manufacturing expenses.

The present invention becomes a closed loop living hinge thus, no extra components or specialized tooling are necessary. A flexible ...

Every year family members have suffered sunburn; it's not always convenient to wear sunblock, and accidental exposure can occur at any time. Since there did not seem to be products available to stop the pain and inflammation of sunburn, I decided to develop one, with the aim of:

1. Making a product that can be lightly applied so as not to cause further pain.
2. Achieving rapid pain relief and reduction of inflammation.
3. Having a product that uses natural organic materials to achieve the benefits.

Existing burns treatments rely on creams that contain silver for an anti-bacterial effect. Research on the Internet found experiments using natural substances such as aloe vera that were as good, or better, at ...
