You are correct, both of them suck ergonomically
I am curious why a "suck ergonomically" work was awarded IF ? You mean IF has a bad sense in judgement? I am willing to see how your works are not ergonomics suck! Or maybe your works are all suck so that you think all other kinds of works suck!
You're still pushing this virtual keyboard thing even after 5 years?
why not since someone is liking to copy it and push it on the market even after 5 years! Further more, this is not a virtual keyboard!
Many. And they issued with real numbers.
You applied by yourself or agency? it is useless for you to understand patent if you apply through agency.You can know nothing but some basic knowledge from them. I can not believe you are professional on patent but mentioned a obviously amateurish issue. You know why? Every inventor hope to widlely protect his/her invention so that he/she must try to avoid some finite words, such as numbers, materials and colors if it is not necessary. The reason is that, like the keyboard, the patent can be easily pirated if you define one camera when others use two or three cameras. If I define the transparent material with glass, you may use transparent plastic or other kind of transparent materials.Therefore the patent is meanless. So, it is impossible for a professional to focus on one or two cameras. On the other hand , how do u know that there is only one camera in my design? Only through the picture ? It is only a design, not the real solution. In fact, two cameras located at one point towards two dirrections is a possible solution when it is produced.
Are you confident with your experience and judgement?
About prototype, I think it a useless issue though you always ask. Not all the patents need prototype. I never built one for my patents.
"James: I know how you feel too. I pitched ideas numerous times, never got it passed stage one and then saw it on the market 3-5 years later. Unfortunately, that's life."
I feel nothing in fact and it is common. Don't worry. the post is not about stage. Please read the post carefully. You may understand it when you read it thousands of times if it is hard to understand.
About patent, I already said clearly: it is still a copy even if others are not patented.right? Can you declare that it is your design if you copy a Beatles car and just because the design has been in public? Don't you think it strange?.
P.S. I never said someone is attacking me. And it is normal if someone does.After all it is not acceptable for someone to admit pirating. I can understand you.
Sorry for my frankly speaking, there is no relationship between the patent you posted and my design at all therefore I ask you to learn some patent knowledge, which may hurt you and someones else. They are obviously different technologies even if you know some simple technology( this also sharp words...)
I open a group in http://www.yisheren.net
to simply explain some patents issues. Here is the thread:http://www.yisheren.net/forum.php?mod=v ... a=page%3D1
You can easily find the author's works, blogs and videos, not only his/her barren words. It is more interesting here.
I may open a patent class for someones who can not exactly distinguish different ones in the future. Would you like to join ? ? You need pay much in your country to learn that. Of course you need not if you think you have enough patent knowledge. up to you.
