Weird patents

I've always liked odd things in general, and strange and unusual inventions in particular.

Here are a few favorites.

"Device for Waking Persons from Sleep"

"Gas Powered Pogo Stick"

A novel use of horsepower

One of the great patent drawings: "Voice Communication With a Local Entity"

A new application for a plant patent.

Patent title : Dianthus plant named 'WATERLOO SUNSET'

I presume the name for the plant comes from the song,since the same breeder patented a plant named "Ruby's Tuesday".
