|20140139407||MODULAR HEADS-UP DISPLAY SYSTEMS - A Heads-Up Display (HUD) system comprises a processor, a power source, and one or more sensors coupled to a frame connector. The processor is configured to receive signals from the one or more sensors and output image data. A display is mounted on a display arm extending from the frame connector. The display is configured to display images based on the image data. A goggles frame is configured to releasably receive the frame connector. The display is located within a field of view of a user wearing the goggles frame when the frame connector is received by the goggles frame.||05-22-2014|
|20140130241||RETRACTABLE DISPLAYS FOR HELMETS - The present invention relates to a helmet that includes an outer shell, a heads-up information system that comprises a display, and an attachment assembly. The heads-up information system is movable from a storage position within the outer shell to a use position in which the display of the heads-up information system is visible by a user, without obstructing the field of vision of the user, when the helmet is worn by the user. The attachment assembly is coupled to outer shell and the heads-up information system, and is operable to move the heads-up information system between the storage position and the use position.||05-15-2014|
|20140059472||METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR CONTROLLING ELECTRONIC DEVICES - A method includes, on a display of an electronic device, displaying a key layout, the key layout comprising a plurality of rows of keys and a plurality of columns of keys, displaying an indication of an active position at a first location for selecting one of the keys, detecting a directional input, and in response to the directional input, adjusting the key layout while maintaining display of the indication of the active position at the first location.||02-27-2014|
|20130222235||GAZE DETECTING HEADS-UP DISPLAY SYSTEMS - A display system for a head-mounted device comprising a display for displaying information. The display system includes a glance detector comprising a light source, disposed proximate the display, for transmitting light toward an eye of a user of the head-mounted device, a light detector, disposed proximate the light source, for detecting light reflected from the eye of the user and generating a voltage based on the detected light. The display system also includes a processor operably coupled to the display, and the gaze detector and configured to control the display to turn-on the display based on the voltage received from the glance detector.||08-29-2013|
|20130222213||MODULAR HEADS-UP DISPLAY SYSTEMS - A Heads-Up Display (HUD) system for mounting on a pair of goggles comprises a processing unit configured to be coupled to a strap of the goggles, a display unit connectable to the processing unit and comprising a display configured to display images under control of the processing unit, and a display mount configured to be coupled to the goggles and adjustably receive the display unit.||08-29-2013|
|20130044043||HEAD MOUNTED INFORMATION SYSTEMS AND RELATED METHODS - A head mounted information system comprises a frame configured to be worn by a user, a sensor unit coupled to the frame, and a processor unit coupled to the frame. The processor unit is connected to receive signals from the sensor unit. The sensor unit comprises a gyroscope configured to produce angular velocity signals representing a head angular velocity about a generally horizontal axis oriented generally perpendicular to a direction the user is facing when the user is wearing the frame. The processor unit is configured to detect a jump by the user based on the angular velocity signals received from the sensor unit and generate a jump output signal indicting one or more jump parameters. A display unit may also be coupled to the frame to display the jump parameters to the user.||02-21-2013|
|20120235902||CONTROL SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR HEAD-MOUNTED INFORMATION SYSTEMS - A head-mounted information system is provided, the head-mounted information system comprising a frame configured to be mounted on a head of a user, a display unit coupled to the frame, a sensor unit coupled to the frame comprising one or more motion sensors, and, a processor unit coupled to the frame and connected to receive signals from the motion sensors. The processor unit comprises a processor and a memory accessible by the processor. The processor unit is configured to monitor the received signals and enter a gesture control mode upon detection of a gesture control enable signal. In the gesture control mode the processor is configured to convert signals received from the motion sensors into menu navigation commands.||09-20-2012|
