A portable picting device automatically converts an audio signal from a microphone into a digital data stream, parses a series of words from the digital data stream, and detects any words that match tags in a tag/image database. An image corresponding to the matching tag(s) is then retrieved and transmitted to a display. The images may be stored on a remote network, such as the Internet. In the illustrative embodiment the display is integrated into an article of clothing such as a shirt.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
