The present disclosure provides rechargeable battery systems and methods. A rechargeable battery is provided that is configured to be removably coupled to a first electronic device. The electronic device includes a plurality of electrical device contacts. The rechargeable battery includes a plurality of electrical battery contacts configured for input and output of electrical energy between the rechargeable battery and the first electronic device upon electrically coupling the plurality of electrical battery contacts to the plurality of electrical device contacts. The rechargeable battery includes an output port configured for output of electrical energy from the rechargeable battery to a second electronic device. The rechargeable battery permits connection of the output port to the second electronic device to output electrical energy from the rechargeable battery to the second electronic device as the battery is being charged by the first electronic device.


Patent
SDI Inc | Date: 2014-04-08

A dental capsule (10) for storing a dental powder component (13) and a liquid component (28) in separated condition in which the powder component (13) is contained in a chamber (17) and the liquid component (28) is contained in a pouch (18). The capsule (10) comprises a freely movable member (36) arranged to rupture the pouch (18) upon vibration of the capsule (10) so that the liquid component (28) admixes with the powder component (13) to form a dental paste (38). The compartment of the capsule has a manually removable cap (14) to enable the dental paste (38) to be retrieved for use.

A system and method for automated probabilistic planning of network attacks against infrastructures of computer networks and applications is provided. The embodiments automate the analysis and probabilistic planning of multi-step attacks to computer and application networks (in particular in the context of automating penetration tests), optimizing with respect to one of the following metrics: the probability of success of the actions, a numerical parameter that must be minimized (e.g., running time), or the number of logs generated by the control devices in the target network.

A container (10) for mixing components comprises a main body (12) defining a main chamber (17) and a liquid receptacle (16) and a plunger (18). The main chamber (17) has a distal end (26) which has an end cap (28). The main chamber (17) has a central aperture (30) sealed by a frangible membrane (38). In use, the plunger (18) causes liquid in the liquid receptacle (16) to be pushed through an internal wall (22) containing a weakened portion (24) into the main chamber (17) which contains a powder. The liquid and powder are mixed to form a paste. The paste is accessed by an applicator which breaks the frangible membrane (38). The container is especially envisaged for use in mixing of components to provide a paste for dental use.

A container (10) for mixing and dispensing material comprises a body (12) having a main chamber (17), a dispensing nozzle (26), a liquid receptacle (16) and a plunger (18). The liquid receptacle (16) has a front portion arranged to break away upon pressure being applied by the plunger (18) so that the plunger (18) can traverse the entire length of the body (12). This enables a charge of material in the main chamber (17) to be entirely dispensed through a frangible wall (22) into the nozzle (26). The container (10) is particularly envisaged for use in mixing and dispensing of dental materials.

A dental container (10) comprising means for containing liquid and solid powder dental materials initially in separated condition. The liquid is contained in a receptacle (22) having an inner wall (26) with a relatively thin weakened section (28). A plunger (30) is mounted in an open outer end (24) of the receptacle (22) initially. The receptacle (22) is inserted at a proximal end of an outer central body (12) whilst a separable nose portion (18) is mounted at a distal end of the outer central body (12). In use, the plunger 30 is used to rupture the wall (26) by hydraulic pressure or by means of a sharp projection (52) to cause the liquid to contact powder material held in a distal end of the outer central body (12) and the nose (18) for mixing to form a dental paste. The nose (18) is subsequently manually detached from the outer central body (12) so that the dental paste can be accessed for use.

A liquid container (10) has an outer wall (12) to which is mounted a liquid material receptacle (18). The liquid material receptacle has an open end (20) and a closed end (24). The open end (20) of the liquid material receptacle (18) is sealed by a membrane (34). Further, the liquid material receptacle (18) tapers inwardly from the open end (20) to the closed end (24).

The systems and methods of the present solution include a streamlined and simplified website by which users can create their dolls. A simple multi-page process guides the client through, with lots of fun moments and a very basic check-out system. In some embodiments, a dress-up portion of the creation process and/or activity/game may allow visitors to explore and see what their dolls look like with various clothes and accessories, and provides an element of fun and excitement around what they have created, and adds value to the site that does not detract or distract from the main goal of converting to purchase

A sleep management application on a computing device having a processor and a storage medium executes code that establishes to a server that maintains data pertaining to the computing device or to a user, retrieves data from the remote server, and generates a custom interface to configure a feature of the computing device. The custom interface is used to program a sleep management setting. In one implementation, a method uses the sleep management application to provide an alarm function using external data from a remote server. The sleep management application can receive the external data from the remote server and analyze the external data to identify elements that pertain to the sleep management application. Then, the sleep management application can generate a control signal based on the elements, and modify a setting governing an operation of the alarm function in accordance with the control signal.

A container (10) for mixing and dispensing material comprises a body (12) having a main chamber (17), a dispensing nozzle (26), a liquid receptacle (16) and a plunger (18). The liquid receptacle (16) has a front portion arranged to break away upon hydraulic pressure being applied by the plunger (18) so that the plunger (18) can traverse the entire length of the body (12). This enables a charge of material in the main chamber (17) to be entirely dispensed through a frangible wall (22) into the nozzle (26). The container (10) has a compression zone with a stepped region (50) to provide limited resistance to movement for use with low viscosity material. This reduces the risk of uncontrolled extrusion of the low viscosity material.
