DailyDirt: Wacky Inventions and Inventors...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Inventions aim to improve anything and everything. So there are a lot of pretty trivial inventions out there, but every so often there are some really cool things, too. Here are just a few quick links about inventions and inventors. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    "It seems a bit presumptuous to call someone (other than Necessity?) a 'master' of invention."

    That depends upon your definition of master. I think people conflate being a master with someone who knows everything about a subject. I would say a 'master" of invention is someone who understands invention, understands the language of invention and is able to invent. I would also say there are many levels of mastery.

    @goo picker upper: I remember reading about a proposed hospital gurney that was similar but used two sheets, one on top for the patient and another on the bottom so it wouldn't foul in the bed sheets. Since both sheets came out of the middle of the device at the same rate, they wouldn't foul with each other either.
