Patent nonsense

Here's an interesting new feed: obscure_patents, syndicated from Eugene R. Quinn's "Museum of Obscure Patents". It has a number of interesting patents already, such as the "beer-brella" (an umbrella for beer bottles to keep them cool, apparently), a headmounted letter "M" display (which is quite literally a giant "M" you wear on your head), or even a "hyper-light-speed antenna" (which should most likely be something that's physically impossible to construct), and new stuff should be added regularly, too (well, at least I think it should).

Quite a funny read, originally pointed out by the fine folks at http://www.freeculture.org (__freeculture).
