WO/2016/133408 OBJECT MOVEMENT CONTROL APPARATUS AND METHOD||WO||25.08.2016|
||PCT/NZ2016/050023||BUNGY NEW ZEALAND LIMITED||WRIGHT, Kevin Andrew|
Described herein is an apparatus and method to convey an object through the air in a controlled and repeatable manner. The apparatus may comprise an object attached to at least one resilient member, the resilient member or members constraining object movement in a substantially vertical y-axis direction. The apparatus may also comprise at least one support member coupled to the at least one resilient member, and the support member or members constrain object movement in a substantially horizontal x-axis direction. In use, the resilient member is energised, movement initiated, and object movement then occurs in both an x-axis and y-axis direction, the movement path substantially governed by the resilient member(s) and the support member(s). The apparatus and method may allow the object to experience a variety of movement sensations, one being the feeling of flight or gliding.

||PCT/NZ2016/050016||CARBONSCAPE LIMITED||CONNER, Gregory Thomas|
The present invention relates primarily to methods of production of graphite from biomass, char or tar. The invention also provides novel apparatus and catalysts for the production of graphite from carbon-containing materials. In particular embodiments, the invention relates to the production of graphite by hydrothermal treatment of biomass to produce tar or hydrochar and graphitisation to produce graphite.
WO/2016/130025 OPTICAL DETECTION OF FLUORESCENCE||WO||18.08.2016|
||PCT/NZ2016/050014||AUCKLAND UNISERVICES LIMITED||VANHOLSBEECK, Frederique|
A system for quantifying fluorescence elicited on a substance or sample. The system has an excitation light source configured to direct light to an waveguide network. The network has a probe tip adapted to transmit excitation light to the sample and receive fluorescence light elicited from the sample. A detector is configured to receive fluorescence light from the waveguide network and output a signal corresponding to the fluorescence light power, and a control system comprising a memory component configured to store signal to noise ratio threshold values. The control system is configured to perform the steps of recording an optical background noise power measurement, transmitting excitation light to the sample for a first period of time, recording one or more optical fluorescence power measurements during the transmission of the excitation light, determining a signal to noise ratio signal to noise ratio from one or more of the recorded power measurements, comparing the signal to noise ratio to a threshold value stored in the memory component, and determining a fluorescence quantification measure from the one or more optical fluorescence power measurements when the signal to noise ratio meets or exceeds the threshold.
