This page consists of patents I have come across that are definitely a little unusual and often pretty funny.
My first is post is my favorite… Patent 3,139,622 for a “Moon Capsule Suit”. I do not know what I like the most, the huge satellite dish coming out of the helmet, the pleated space skirt, or the little lunar sandals. The inventor was Ottto Schueller from Dayton, Ohio and he was worked on this patent for the US Air Force at the time. The patent itself is interesting to read since he anticipates a number of technical challenges to human exploration beyond our own planet.
