Due to too many "broad" patents being defined over the years, the patent office requires an in depth report of how an idea works. This includes the "digital" layer.
So if I make a patent saying "The use of 4 eyes to see the ball" That will get rejected.
If I make a patent saying "The use of four eyes to calculate the rate that a ball passes between one set of eyes, and makes it into the other to perform a logorythm that allows me processes to close the bolt using a calculated time sequence that is proprietary"
They will review that one with the one that says "I will use four eyes to make sure that a ball has completely passed the feedneck, and has settled into the breech appropriately allowing my bolt to close"
and accept it.
The difference between those two is that the second one uses 1's and 0's, while the first one uses an actual calculation to "best guess" how the loader operates, so the hopper and marker can work with each other efficiently.
Now I've only seen these in the pics, and have heard third party information, so I don't know if I'm even in the ballpark on how the Onyx works, but that's what I'd set up.
