The name of this mechanical, hardware, and software device that has just become patent pending in the US is a “Golf Grip Hand Structure Efficiency Device” and is somewhat self-explanatory. The device in principle needs to extend through a golfer’s hands in similar fashion to a golf grip of a golf club, but be just long enough to cover the span of the golfer’s hands. Furthermore, the rigidity and stiffness that all golf shafts/grips have (referring specifically here to the section contained within the hands), which provide a very secure and common axis to both hands to help golfers coordinate the working of the hands throughout a swing much more easily, need to be removed in order to measure the true gripping hand structure efficiency of any golfer. To that end, it is generally required that the device be as small in diameter, as light, and as flexible as possible along its entire length as a few examples of its physical attributes. In other words, the device needs to behave as though there is absolutely nothing in the hands of a golfer, allowing complete independent freedom of movement of a golfer’s hands as much as possible in the course of making a swing with the device in hand. The device would feasibly have wireless sensors embedded within it at strategic locations to gather critically needed data, the data being subsequently analyzed by an appropriate software application (which is also needed). While numerous various measurements can be taken, analyzed, and be very valuable, one of the most important is a comparison of the axes of or through each of the hands relative to each other at any given point(s) of a golf swing (when no stabilizing golf shaft/grip is common to both hands), which largely determines whether a golfer’s true gripping hand structure is efficient or not. Due to the multitude of various individual golf clubs used when playing the game, it is absolutely critical in golf that a dependable and repeatable “base” reference swing be available for any golfer with no golf club in hand (in principle performing a swing as though a perfectly fit and made golf club is always in hand). A base swing performance is a foundational element toward proper and effective golf swing development and clubfitting, and the use of this golf grip hand structure efficiency device helps to determine how effectively a golfer can currently perform his/her base golf swing and how to proceed next (based upon how good the golfer’s gripping efficiency measurement, value, or rating is). A vague first idea for the hardware/mechanical portion of the device would be a very flexible piece of silicone in somewhat the shape of a blunt-ended pencil that could have some small sensors embedded within it. It is possible the sensors could be wired, but that might cause various issues based upon the type of movement performed and data needed. But there certainly could be other manifestations or embodiments of the device instead, with a couple of possible examples being virtual-reality-type gloves with sensors attached to them that can be worn, or a wireless sensor(s) embedded within something like a ring that I have seen, where of few of them worn in strategic places on the fingers of the hands could help get the type of data that is needed. I am not extremely well versed in all currently available types of sensors, materials, manufacturing methods, and so forth that could possibly be utilized for this particular device/application and which one(s) might be most efficient. I am certainly open to all suggestions at this time. More detailed information can be made available and discussed with qualified parties. I am open to working with a single entity or multiple entities that might specialize in one or more needed areas like materials, electronics, and software application programming. I am open to either fixed quotes or hourly rates for any part(s) of the project that one feels qualified for and interested in. I apologize in advance if I am a little slow to respond to any interested parties, as I have still yet to find a qualified and affordable contractor(s) to competently complete a previous project. The patent protection period has already dwindled down monumentally for that one, and as a general whole that project still needs to take precedence over this one. But the two are very broadly related and one can help the other, so I need this project turned into a sellable product as soon as possible. Thanks.

We are looking to hire a programmer(s) to build an app that will: 1. Convert smartphone 2D pictures and videos into 3D pictures and videos and 2. Convert those 3D pics and videos into Augmented Reality / Mixed Reality For step one, we're planning on using an API from Adobe Premier which will use the back-end, server-side to convert the pics and vids to 3D. So we'll need Experts who understand that Premier lets users circle or encapsulate the subject of a photo then make the background key-able or the same color. Premier at this point is vector based, not pixel based...and that is a hugely important part to understand. Step two would include server-side conversion (hopefully via API) of the 3D pics and vid to AR, like MagicLeap We are also looking for engineers to build an LCD-related revolutionary new tech that is current non-disclosable but related to the above 2 steps. Please includes examples of your work, including current projects, time availability and rate. Thanks!

Hi, I need a requirement specification for an instrument (A) that can measure an object's (B) speed, and the and distance between A and B in both length, width, heigth. The output should be top speed of B, distance between A and B, and placement of B in the moment when it passes A. Before producing the requirements, we need to discuss which type of technology that could make it possible to track that real time, and provide the relevant data.

I need help with a report i have been asked to prepare for my job. 5. Draw system-level context diagrams for the system-of-interest (you might consider the operational view, the acquisition view, and the support/sustainment view). Identify the system boundary on the context diagrams and then describe it in functional and physical terms (that is, clarify the relationship of each element in the diagrams with the system boundary/impact on system design). 6. List the system’s external interfaces and label them on the context diagram for the ‘Operational View’. Choose ONE external interface and define it (description, impact analysis, control analysis) in accordance with of activity C1.3.3). 7. Identify at least five significant system-level trade studies associated with project. Conduct ONE of the identified trade studies. 8. Starting with the content from your system mission, goals, and objectives, develop an RBS for the system down to level five (note that your mission statement constitutes level 0, so you require an additional five levels of detail). Focus on a portion of your RBS (you may have to expand it further, depending on which portion you have chosen) and complete the detail for at least 5 functional requirements in the format of Figure 8-9 (noting that you may have more than one performance statement for each functional statement).
