20110086716Novelty eye patch with artificial eye or eyelid - A novelty eye patch with a retaining, elastic band connected to a gag, false eye, eyelid or other embodiment, concealed beneath the patch. The patch and false eye or lid will be adjoined by a small, hidden spring, built onto two (2) hard wire frames. The spring will compress the false eye or lid against the user's real eye while allowing the patch to be lifted, revealing the gaff eye or lid. The two (2) steel wire frames will be concealed, along with the adjoining spring. One wire frame will be sewn into the outer circumference of the eye patch while the other frame will be molded into the underlying gaff or falsetto eye, to conceal their identity while maintaining stability to the patch and the gaff. Opposing force, created by the hidden spring, will compress downward the false eye or lid firmly against the user's real-eyelid, while maintaining a constant upward force of pressure on the patch. The spring will include a locking clip to keep the patch lowered to the position of the user's eye until such time that the user elects to lift the patch to reveal the gaff. This pressure will make lifting the patch more simplistic, while conversely maintaining an opposing force against the gaff eye or lid thereby preserving firmness of the gaff onto the user's real eyelid.04-14-2011

The pitch axis extends through or proximal to the center of mass of the body, and the pivotal connector that supports the vehicle in a pendular manner is spaced apart and above the center of mass. The linkage assembly may include one or more four-bar linkages to provide two degrees of freedom of the body relative.08-20-2009
20110177873Potential Energy Assisted Motion Simulator Mechanism and Method - This invention is a compact motion simulator incorporating a potential energy assisted drive mechanism and a direct memory motion method. The mechanism provides movement of heavy loads with reduced power compared to simulators of its type employing direct drive mechanisms. Potential energy devices are connected to rigid leverage members extending from the rotational axes. When moved about said axes, by means of powered actuators, displacement of the load away from center causes the potential energy devices to expand and store energy. This energy acts on opposition to the forces that created it producing a state at or near static equillibrium and thus greatly reduces power required to move the load back to center. The direct memory motion method uses a software component memory reader that gains access to the running process of a simulation program and derives motion data from memory addresses used by the programs graphical and physics engines.07-21-2011
