I'm trying hard not to add to to my OCD-worthy accumulation of useless books and disposable pop cultural detritus, but when I spied this yesterday at Daedalus Books & Music for a mere $5, I could only mutter "Must. Buy. Now." As the back cover so aptly states, this book of real patent applications from the U.S. Patent Office is a "celebration of innovation...designed to titillate and facilitate" which leaves one begging the question: "Where can I buy one?"!
Worth it for the illustrations alone, not to mention the detailed accompanying descriptions.
Is there an app for this?
