20120028721Method for Tactile Signaling of Touches in the Sport of Fencing - A method and apparatus are described for adding tactile signaling to the electronic scoring equipment used in the sport of fencing. The tactile signaling introduced by this invention is intended to complement, not replace, existing electronic fencing scoring systems and the signals that are already employed to indicate touches, both optical and auditory (i.e. lights and a bell or buzzer, respectively). The system here would receive indication that a touch had been scored from an existing scoring system. Signals would be transmitted wirelessly to a unit on or near the director's person. Tactile signaling would be accomplished by a pair of offset motors attached to each of the director's hands (or wrists or arms). When the fencer to the director's right scores a touch, the right motor would vibrate. When the fencer to the director's left scores a touch, the left motor would vibrate.02-02-2012
20090156316AutoClock: a timer for fencing scoring apparatus - A device to activate a timer integrated into, or attached to, an electronic fencing apparatus whereby the fencers themselves may activate the timer with their fencing equipment, eliminating the need for an official, thereby facilitating training. Upon activation, the device will wait an unpredictable amount of time before starting the timer, preventing competitors from anticipating when the event will begin, which facilitates a fair competition. When a third party is present and able to activate the timer, the unpredictable delay also eliminates intentional or unintentional unfairness on the part of the third party.06-18-2009
