Instant Battery Recharge for Cell Phones (Romain): U.S. Patent No. 9,967,377

It has happened to all of us. Our cell phone battery is dead. We forget to plug it in to charge it, the battery is low or – worse yet – dead, and we just do not have time to wait for the battery to recharge. What to do? The solution is elegantly simple: Just swap out the old dead battery for a new charged battery. However, rather than have to pop off the back of the phone and physically dismantle the thing, you use a docking pad that slides out the old battery and slides in a new fully charged battery in seconds! For you do not have the time – and, really, how much extra time do you have in the course of a day? – to wait for your smartphone battery to recharge, this invention provides a quick, easy and inexpensive way to always have a fully charged, ready-to-use mobile phone.

In fact, what most people will do – thanks to this invention – is what we do with other battery-powered devices like lawn and shop tools – we will have two batteries. One will be in the re-charging unit so when the battery we are using runs low we just swap it out with the freshly charged battery. We then pop the low battery into the re-charging unit, repeat the cycle, and go on about our busy lives. A whole new business segment will be created of cell phones with a slide-in/slide-out battery and a charging unit for the out-of-use, backup battery!

U.S. Patent No. 9,967,377 for a “Phone Instant Recharge Battery Replacement Apparatus” would be an ideal acquisition for any cell phone manufacturer that is ready to leapfrog the technology of all of its competitors and offer a level of convenience not available on the current generation of smartphones!

Dual-Mode Display/Keypad Smart Phone (Constin): U.S. Patent No. 9,292,048

Sometimes you need a small, compact cell phone that can be easily carried around with you in a pocket or pocketbook. That is not too large and not too heavy, ready to use to make or receive a phone call, and it has a touch screen display to enter the phone number you are calling or to select a number from your stored contacts. However, you sometimes need a larger, smarter phone, preferably with a keyboard and a screen, for when you need to send a lengthy text or you need to send or respond to an e-mail and you do not have access to a PC. Or you need to order on line or conduct important business, and a keyboard would sure be handy. Too bad you cannot have both.

Correction! You can have both, thanks to the invention covered by this international portfolio. The invention covers what is clearly THE next generation of smartphones and PDAs. It enables a device to have BOTH a small and compact touch-screen display AND a conventional keyboard with a display! The touch-screen display is on the top of the smartphone or PDA, and it can be used just as current touch-screen displays are now used. However, the display lifts up and off the top of the device, and then swivels around, revealing a keyboard for which the touch-screen display now becomes a display to support the keyboard!

In addition to U.S. Patent No. 9,292,048, this portfolio includes German Patent Application 1120130014335, European Patent Application 2826229 and PCT Patent Application 2013135231. The company that acquires this portfolio will own the next generation of smartphones, while all of its competitors are selling outdated, single-configuration units!

Grain of Salt Size Chip that Determines Precise Color Wavelength (Raindance): U.S. Patent No. 7,061,610

In the never-ending search for more bandwidth, color multiplexing has become a common practice. Rather than add more fiber optic cable – which means running more conduit – the same fiber optic cable can transmit multiple data streams on different colors. And not just Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Violet, but hundreds of colors, each just a slight wavelength different from another color. And it works great just as long as a color does not go slightly off from what it is supposed to be, and network data from a major bank ends up on a call to your mom in Miami.

U.S. Patent No. 7,061,610 for a “Photonic Integrated Circuit Based Planar Wavelength Meter” covers a chip the size of a grain of salt that accurately measures the wavelength of a beam of light. In addition to its usefulness in fiber optic communications monitoring and quality control, it has other applications. It can be used to diagnose an illness by determining the exact color of a drop of blood, for example. It also has consumer applications. The chip can be inserted in a cell phone so your mom can use her cell phone to check the freshness of fruits and vegetables at the market. This patent would be a strategic acquisition for any business in the fiber optics, medical devices or cell phone industries.

Increased Capacity Fiber Optic Cable (Barhon): U.S. Patent No. 7,899,290

One of the greatest challenges facing the telecommunications infrastructure today is getting all that data through the fiber optic cables and to its destination. Everyone needs more bandwidth! This patent addresses that very issue by using multi-fiber flexible flat jackets that can move freely within the cable's pipe. At specific intervals the flat jackets are stitched together in such a way that they do not apply pressure to the optic fibers and this prevents undesired sliding movement of the jackets against each other or against the pipe.

U.S. Patent No. 7,899,290 for a “System and Method for Transferring More Information in Optic Fiber Cables by Significantly Increasing the Number of Fibers per Cable” would enable any business in the telecommunications sector – especially manufacturers of fiber optic cables – to dramatically increase its bandwidth in terms of transmitting data via fiber optics.

Data Manipulation via Cell Phone Camera (Antognini): U.S. Patent No. 8,468,148

Imagine if you could use the camera on your smart phone to read a machine code (a QR, bar or other type of code), and by just moving your cell phone around, you can manipulate the image or data to which that code takes you. Thanks to this patent, now you can! The invention covered by this patent enables a cell phone camera to read a machine code and take the viewer to a specific location on the web. Once there, the viewer can zoom in or zoom out by moving his cell phone closer or drawing it back. Or search to the right or left or up or down by simply moving the phone. For example, a real estate agent can have a code that takes home buyers to the location of the property at Google Maps. Once there, the prospect can tour the neighborhood for local stores, restaurants, churches and other facilities by simply moving her smart phone around the map.

U.S. Patent No. 8,468,148 for “Searching by Use of Machine-Readable Code Content” would enable the acquirer of the patent to develop an app that would empower cell phones to read machine codes provided by location-specific businesses. It can also be used to enable smart phone cameras to be used to play video games.

Cell Phone Multiple Call Sessions (ProjectOne): U.S. Patent No. 9,049,696
