PopimsCode patents

PopimsCode is the industry's first set of solutions for consumers and businesses providing anyone the ability to quickly and conveniently verify the authenticity of products and documents.


Most of them are patent protected.

PCT/FR2012/000096 with a April 5. 2012. priority, valid until April 4. 2032

This patent is the main one. It has already been delivered in the United States of America (US 9,058,535). It protects all the Popims 3DShining™ technologies (3DShiningFlakes™, 3DShiningTextures™, 3DShiningNature™ and 3DShiningFrost™) as well as the HD3D™ and HDLenticular™ technologies.

Here is a synthesis of the main claim:
A tag composed of modules with optical disturbers that can be too small to be voluntarily placed in a precise position, authenticated by a simple webcam comprising positioning means in three dimensions co-operating with a recognizable graphical structure said "marker".
To establish the authenticity of an object protected by this code, one compares the description made after its printing which is stored in a database, with a new description resulting from at least two acquisitions,
one in the same conditions,
and the other by changing the point of view defined in three dimensions, and/or lighting.

We strongly believe it is the industry's first and only solution for consumers and businesses providing anyone the ability to quickly and conveniently verify the authenticity of products, and documents.
The patent protects all tags with 3 dimensional structures, which are the only ones impossible to reproduce by printing techniques.
Anyone using a smartphone application implementing this method is counterfeiting this patent.

PCT/FR/2009/050883 with a May 13. 2008 priority, valid until May 12. 2028

It is one of the two main Popims LensPrinter patents protecting specifically the HDLenticular™ technology. It is already delivered in the United States of America (US 8,472,118). Il protège la technologies HDLenticular™™.

This technology enables the manufacturing of printed optical elements by starting with printing "optical members" with a varnish that has a high superficial tension and is repulsed by the printing media. These optical members are small enough avoid coalescence-merging therewith before curing. Additional layers of vernish are then printed, still repulsed by the printing media to make the lenses or other optical elements grow..
This technology enables for example the manufacturing of optical lenticular arrays with inkjet printers.

PCT/FR/2011/000315 with a June 3 2010 priority, valid until June 2. 2030

It is the second main Popims LensPrinter patent protecting specifically the HDLenticular™ technology. It has just been issued in the United States of America where it will be published shortly (US US2013071568 (A1)) où il sera délivré dans les jours à venir. Il protège la technologies HDLenticular™™.

This technology enables the manufacturing of printed optical elements by starting with printing "fences" with a varnish that has a high superficial tension when the varnish is liquid, but has a low superficial tension when it gets hardened. One covers then these fences with flat tints of layer having a high superficial tension, and these flat tints are repulsed by the fenses to make the lenses volume grow.
This technology enables for example the manufacturing of optical lenticular arrays with flexographic printing lines.

Patent US 6,833,960 with a March 5. 2002 priority , valid until March 4.2022
Brevet US 6,856,462 with a February 28. 2003 priority, valid until February 27.2023
Brevet US 7,609,451 with a February 5. 2008 priority, valid until February 4. mars 2022

These patents protect devices comprising lenses manufactured with printing techniques (i.e. the HDLenticular™ technology). They are all delivered in the United States of America (US 6,833,960 , US 6,856,462 et US 7,609,451)
