USPTO Museum Honors Steve Jobs With Patent Display
Steve Jobs death garnered attention from an incredible number of individuals and produced a wave of memorials ranging from street art to iPhone back plate mods.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office in Alexandria, Va, might outdo them all.
The office recently unveiled an exhibit of 30 enormous iPhone-like models each displaying patents listing Jobs as inventor or co-inventor. The New York Times produced an interesting interactive collection of Steve Jobs patent collection as well. The USPTO’s exhibit is free to the public and displays over 300 patents.
“This exhibit commemorates the far-reaching impact of Steve Jobs’ entrepreneurship and innovation on our daily lives. His patents and trademarks provide a striking example of the importance intellectual property plays in the global marketplace.” — Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the USPTO David Kappos.
Invent Now—the non-profit organization which runs the USPTO’s National Inventors Hall of Fame and Museum—designed and created and utilizes 30 interactive iPhone-like displays. The exhibit will run through January 15, 2012 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
