20090075549Infant Entertainment Device - The present invention relates to an infant entertainment device with a movable object. In one embodiment, the infant entertainment device is a toy aquarium. The infant entertainment device includes a drive mechanism that is operably coupled to the movable object to move the object.03-19-2009
20090311941Portable Device - A portable device comprises a motor for providing vibration, a power source for powering the motor, a switching device for controlling the direction of the motor, propelling means for engaging a surface and for propelling the device when the motor is vibrating, the propelling means extending downwardly at an angle to the vertical, and an input device connected to the switching device, the switching device arranged to switch the direction of the motor when the input device receives a predetermined signal. Advantageously, the propelling means comprise a set of bristles. By using angled bristles, this increases friction in the backwards direction and so causes the device to move forwards when vibrating. The bristles dig into surface when vibration tries to move the object backwards, and the bristles slide over surface when vibration tries to move object forwards.12-17-2009
20080248714Fan Attachment Arrangement - An attachment arrangement for use in connection with an existing ceiling fan having a plurality of rotatable fan blades. The arrangement includes a connecting arrangement for attaching an object to at least a portion of at least one of the fan blades, such that, as the fan blade rotates, the object rotates via the connecting arrangement.10-09-2008
20100261404Fan Attachment Arrangement - An attachment arrangement for use in connection with an existing ceiling fan having a plurality of rotatable fan blades. The arrangement includes a connecting arrangement for attaching an object to at least a portion of at least one of the fan blades, such that, as the fan blade rotates, the object rotates via the connecting arrangement.10-14-2010

20100173557Toppled Domino Resettable Track and Attachable Domino - A toppled domino resettable track is a beautiful luxury to have when those not prone to patience are engaged in setting up domino sequences for toppling. Resettable tracks are also useful for less than capable individuals, e.g. children; when they want to create topple sequences, as the tracks keep the dominos fixed to the track in their configurations. With the push of a button or puff of breath, the entire toppled sequence stands to life, ready for another run.07-08-2010
20130084765NOVELTY VEHICLE SIMULATION SYSTEMS - Novelty vehicle simulation systems including computing devices, including processors configured to execute processor executable instructions and computer readable media encoded with processor executable instructions for executing novelty vehicle simulators on the computing devices, and supports defining vehicular appearances. In some examples, supports may be configured to seat computing devices and include vehicular appearance signifying mechanisms configured to communicate encoded representations of the vehicular appearances. In some examples, computing device include vehicular appearance sensing mechanisms operatively paired with the vehicular appearance signifying mechanisms to detect the encoded representations of the vehicular appearances of the supports. In some examples, the computer readable media include processor executable instructions for translating the encoded representation of the vehicular appearances of the support to produce vehicle parameter sets corresponding to the vehicles reflected by the vehicular appearances of the supports and modifying operating parameters of the novelty vehicle simulators according to the vehicle parameter sets.04-04-2013
446233000 GYROSCOPIC 1
20130102223SPINNING TOY APPARATUS - A toy apparatus having a lower base, an upper base and a doll cover for the upper base where the lower base and the upper base attach and detach with an easy twisting motion. The lower base encloses a flywheel on a shaft, and a passageway for a rack and includes a cover with an outside screw thread. The upper base is either empty or encloses three switches, a sound generator, a light source, a controller printed circuit board, and a battery chamber and includes a cover with an inside screw thread that mates with the screw thread of the lower base. The toy apparatus has two primary play modes, a first mode where the lower base, the upper base and the cover are connected and a user uses the rack to spin the flywheel.04-25-2013
20130210317Protective Case for Portable Electronic Device - A protective case for a portable electronic device includes a cover having an aperture and sidewalls defining a cavity configured for releasably receiving a portable electronic device. A back plate is removably disposed within the cavity of the cover. The protective case contains at least two supports movably coupled to the protective case, enabling the protective case and electronic device to be positioned in various orientations. The supports pivot independent of each other into deployed or stowed positions.08-15-2013
