Google Patents

Design for a “Candy Forming Machine” filed 1928

Have you seen this yet? If not, I wholeheartedly recommend you have a look.

Although ‘only’ covering patents filed in the US (we’re still talking over 7,000,000 folks), Google Patents allows you to search the wild, wacky, sometimes ridiculous, sometimes sublime, but always fascinating world of inventions as recorded and logged by the USPTO.

Prepare to invest some serious time here. It’s absolutely cracking stuff.
