Getting a patent is really a very simple task. The hope for a patent is that a magnificent invention worth millions comes out of the whole endeavor.
These patents (as you may have already figured out) simply did not make the cut.
The inventions behind these patents are not completely irrelevant, and some actually appear as rather ingenious.
The simple truth is that you would probably never need a clock for an animal, electric soap, or a head rest for a urinal (many will beg to differ on that one).
Based on these patents in the gallery, I’ll let you be the judge.
