Celebrity Patents

Last month, Google introduced its new Patent Search feature (in beta), allowing users to dig through 7 million US patents from 1790 to mid-1996. On-line patent searching has already been possible through the US Patent and Trademark Office website, but Google makes it fast and easy using their already familiar interface.

The following 18 patents are all by celebrities not usually known for being inventors. You can follow the links to the actual patents to learn more about each one.

And here is a link to highlights from the 1988 Slam dunk contest. I loved it.
