Calviri, Inc. Receives Exclusive Patent License to Immunosignature Technology, Strengthening Its Disease Diagnostic Capabilities

Calviri, Inc., a biotech startup focused on ending deaths from cancer, announces that Skysong Innovations, the intellectual property management company for Arizona State University (“ASU”), granted Calviri an exclusive license to ASU’s Immunosignature patent portfolio. The portfolio consists of multiple granted and pending patents for the use and optimization of immunosignatures as an antibody-based diagnostic platform in the United States and the rest of the world.

The Immunosignature Technology was invented and originally developed by Stephen Albert Johnston, now CEO of Calviri, and his colleagues at ASU. The platform uses hundreds of thousands of chemically diverse peptides to provide an unbiased profile of an individual’s antibody repertoire. It has been applied to both infectious and chronic diseases in published reports. Initially intended as simply a diagnostic tool to detect disease onset, additional work has shown its potential for measuring disease severity and response to therapies.

“Adding the Immunosignature Platform to

Apple Wins Patent for Ultrasonic Wave Technology that accepts Touch Commands Under Water

 

Today Apple was granted a patent titled “Ultrasonic touch detection through display” Apple’s granted patent relates to system architectures, apparatus and methods for acoustic touch detection and exemplary applications of the system architectures, apparatus and methods. The technology will allow touch commands on an iDevice under water and more. 

 

 Apple notes in their patent filing that the position of an object touching a surface can be determined using time of flight (TOF) bounding box techniques, acoustic image reconstruction techniques, acoustic tomography techniques, attenuation of reflections from an array of barriers, or a two-dimensional piezoelectric receiving array, for example.

 

Acoustic touch sensing can utilize transducers, such as piezoelectric transducers, to transmit ultrasonic waves along a surface and/or through the thickness of an electronic device to the surface.

 

As the ultrasonic wave propagates, one or more objects (e.g., fingers, styli – Apple Pencil) in contact with the surface can interact with the

It’s Time For Startups To Use AI To Battle Tech Giants In Patent Wars

Technology giants such as Alibaba and IBM are eating startup innovators’ lunch. These behemoths are seeking to devour even more market share by publishing patents at unprecedented speed in emerging technologies such as blockchain.

As some of the richest companies on the planet, the corporations have the resources to manage the laborious search of existing patents and to overcome the outdated administrative hurdles so that they can file for intellectual property rights.

Patents are definitely old school. Patent laws started with the rise of the nation-state, so they began in the 18th century and were then fully developed in the 19th century. Some changes may have been made to reflect new technologies, but the basic patent laws haven’t evolved to meet the needs of the 21st century.

We’re patenting ideas based on today’s high-tech of artificial intelligence and blockchain with laws that were established centuries ago.

All this puts early-growth

Aspen Aerogels: The New Patent Is A Game-Changer (NYSE:ASPN)

Aspen Aerogels (ASPN) recently obtained a patent for the use of carbon aerogels in lithium-sulfur batteries. The patent has the potential to disrupt the electric vehicle and sustainable energy markets.

There is still a lot of research needed to understand how much this technology will improve lithium-sulfur batteries and if it will be enough to replace lithium-ion batteries. Even if it does, this change will happen gradually, but the change’s prospect is enough to be optimistic about the company in the long run.

Understanding the patent

To understand why lithium-sulfur batteries could replace lithium-ion batteries, we need to understand how these two technologies compare in the 3 key aspects of a battery for the industry: capacity, price, and the number of cycles of the battery.

Capacity is the amount of energy that a battery can accumulate. Current lithium-ion batteries can accumulate around 200 Wh/kg and have a theoretical maximum of

University of Nottingham Ningbo China Scholar Earns Patent for Intellectual Property Protection in 3D Printing

Hing Kai Chan, Professor of Operations Management at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC), and his team recently gained authorisation from the National Intellectual Property Office for the patent “Digital watermarking method for 3D printing models”. The new patent tracks and protects intellectual property in 3D printing.

“The toughest problem in 3D printing is not technology, but the protection of intellectual property,” Professor Chan introduces. At present, the anti-counterfeiting of 3D printing model is mainly achieved by embedding digital watermark into triangular mesh data, but not all the model files are in triangular mesh format, and the embedded digital watermark may be lost in printing and manufacturing.

The model invented by Professor Chan’s team uses the algorithm to transform the 3D spatial matrix similarity problem into 2D image matching problem with high accuracy in the detection result. Moreover, the digital watermark is almost invisible to the naked eye, which

OPPO files a utility patent for clamshell foldable smartphone hinge

Electronics companies around the world are looking to introduce foldable smartphones. So far, only four companies have managed to achieve this feat and they are Samsung, Huawei, Motorola, and Royole. On the other hand, the remaining popular smartphone makers have been applying for patents related to this tech for the past few quarters. One of those companies is OPPO and it has applied for one more.

OPPO Utility Patent - Clamshell Foldable Smartphone Hinge 04

Chinese smartphone maker OPPO is known for its SuperVOOC fast charging technology and uniquely designed phones. But the company is yet to release a foldable smartphone. Anyway, it has been patenting design for such devices for a while now. Hence, we can expect the company to soon launch a commercial foldable smartphone.

That said, the new patent filed by Guangdong Oppo Mobile Telecommunications with the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) is a utility patent for hinge and not design like

Apple Might be Working on a ‘Self-Healing’ Folding Smartphone, Patent Reveals

Folding phones seem to be the next thing in smartphone tech. With manufacturers like Samsung, Motorola, and Huawei already having folding smartphones in the market, it seems like Apple is also looking to get a piece of that pie. Now, since we’re talking Apple, the Cupertino-based giant is said to be looking at folding smartphones a little differently. An Apple patent published on the US Patent and Trademark Office reveals an idea of a ‘self-healing’ smartphone. The patent, filed by Apple in January this year, talks about “Electronic Devices With Flexible Display Cover Layers” with “self-healing” properties. The patent was filed on January 28. It named the inventors of the technology, along with the applicant name (Apple Inc), and the application number.

In the filing, Apple says that the self-healing material, which could be placed

HTC Patent Reveals Its First Ever Foldable Smartphone Design

A couple of months back, HTC made its comeback to the high-end smartphone market by launching its first-ever 5G smartphone. The latest patent spotted by LetsGoDigital confirms that HTC is, after all, interested in the foldable smartphone segment.

The company filed the patent for the foldable display device on December 31, 2019. It was published by the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) on August 20, 2020. The company seems to have chosen the clamshell design for its debut foldable smartphone.

A new patent confirms HTC is working on a foldable smartphone

There are already foldable smartphones like Galaxy Z Flip and Moto Razr with the in-folding clamshell design. Interestingly, the HTC smartphone comes with an out-folding design. The currently used CPI (Colorless Polyimide) or UTG (Ultra-Thin Glass) protection for the foldables still doesn’t offer the same strength as the regular Corning Gorilla Glass.

Even Huawei reportedly opting for
