There is swimsuit which includes one or more fabric elements 1, 9 with a resiliently deformable insert 4 adapted to initially be bent plastically by the wearer into a shape conforming to the wearer's body while retaining thereafter a degree of elastic resilience against further deformation. The fabric elements can thereby be shaped to clamp over areas of the wearer's body without the use of straps or ties. The insert is formed from plastic, resin,or polymer moldings and/or stainless steel wire which is sewn into the periphery of the fabric elements.

||PCT/AU2014/050004||FREEDOM FINANCE AUSTRALIA||ENGWERDA, Joshua|
A method of forming a frozen beverage vessel, the vessel having a shell of desired thickness and transparency surrounding an interior volume, the method including: (i) providing a mould having an interior surface, the interior surface having a shape corresponding to a desired external surface shape of the shell; (ii) at least partially filling the mould with a liquid; (iii) refrigerating the at least partially filled mould; (iv) rotating the at least partially filled mould, whilst under refrigeration, about an axis of rotation such that unfrozen liquid flows over the interior surface of the mould; (v) varying the axis of rotation; and (vi) repeating steps (iv) and (v) under conditions and for a time sufficient to form the shell of desired thickness and transparency.
||WO||WO/2014/146166 - A WIP MANAGEMENT SYSTEM||25.09.2014||
||PCT/AU2014/000289||INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT PTY LTD||HUGHES, David John|
A WIP management system is disclosed that comprises a data storage device arranged to store work in progress (WIP) data indicative of work in progress financial amounts associated with at least one person, and a filter arranged to facilitate filtering of the WIP data according to received criteria so as to produce filtered WIP data. The system is arranged to facilitate display of filtered WIP information indicative of the filtered WIP data, to facilitate selection by a user of WIP from the filtered WIP information and to instigate invoice processing based on the selected WIP. A corresponding method of managing WIP is also disclosed.

||PCT/AU2014/000293||TUSHARE AUSTRALIA PTY LTD||MOODY, James|
Methods and systems for managing the sending of items between users of an online service are disclosed. A request to transfer an item and location identifiers of a first and/or second user are received at a server. Instructions for transferring the item to a dispatcher are transmitted from the server. A code is received at the server from the dispatcher to notify the service that the item has been received and the server transmits location data to the dispatcher to enable the dispatcher to transfer the item to the second user. Alternatively, a code can be provided to the first user who will provide the code to a second user or the first user provides an email address of the second user and the server sends an email to the second user. The first and second users each provide location identifiers to enable a transfer service to transfer the item.

||PCT/AU2014/000303||COMMONWEALTH SCIENTIFIC AND INDUSTRIAL RESEARCH ORGANISATION||RAMSHAW, John, Alan, Maurice|
The present invention relates to a method for purifying triple-helical or collagen-like proteins recombinantly produced from a bacterial, yeast or plant host cell.
||WO||WO/2014/146164 - COLOR SELECTION||25.09.2014||
||PCT/AU2014/000235||LIFI LABS INC||DARTON, Adam|
The present invention provides a processor-based method for selecting a color via an electronic visual display means, the method comprising the steps of: displaying to a user a color spectrum on the electronic visual display means, the color spectrum comprising a first region and a second region; the first region displaying a first user observable color range, the second region displaying a second user observable color range, providing a selection means configured to allow the user to select a color displayed within the second region, wherein the number of user observable colors in the second region is greater than the number of colors observable in the first region. The invention allows for the more precise of color selection for a user, particularly for the color of light emitted by a LED lighting device.

||PCT/AU2014/000296||TECHNOLOGICAL RESOURCES PTY. LIMITED||KINGMAN, Samuel|
A method of processing mined material, such as mined ore, includes a step of exposing mined material to an alternating magnetic field and directly or indirectly assessing the electrical conductivity of mined material in the alternating magnetic field in order to determine whether there is valuable material in the mined material. An apparatus for processing mined material, such as mined ore, includes a magnetic field station that is adapted to expose mined material to an alternating magnetic field that induces currents in mined material that are related to the electrical conductivity of valuable material in the mined material.
||WO||WO/2014/146168 - AUTOMATIC DETECTION OF TASK TRANSITION||25.09.2014||
||PCT/AU2014/000292||NATIONAL ICT AUSTRALIA LIMITED||EPPS, Julien|
This disclosure concerns the monitoring of a user performing tasks. A processor receives multiple consecutive images of an eye of the user captured over a period of time. In each of the multiple consecutive images the processor determines a value representing an eye feature to obtain multiple consecutive values. Based on these multiple consecutive values the processor determines a measure of change that characterises change of the eye feature over the multiple consecutive images. Finally, the processor determines whether the user transitioned from a first task to a second task during the period of time based on the measure of change. The determination of task transitions is robust and efficiently achievable with low-cost equipment, such as web-cameras. The disclosed method is independent of the user's environment and therefore particularly applicable where no further devices, such as electronic displays, are used in the user's environment.
