According to The New York Times, in “Endpaper: Patents”, creations patented in 2009 are sorted and classified by labels like “When Life Isn’t Exciting Enough,” “Reinventing the Wheel,” and “Department of Questionable Judgment.”
Inventions include a bacon comb, an inflatable Christmas tree, water-draining shoes and a retractable chopstick.
Maybe you’ve had an idea for an invention you’d like to patent, or maybe you’ve just identified a need that an enterprising inventor could meet. Tell us about your idea, or describe a need, large or small, that you wish a 2010 invention could address. Put them in the comments.
