The Fix to Movie Theater Seating Arrangements

"Theater Seating Equipment" Patent. 

"Theater Seating Equipment" Patent. 

Have you ever been watching a movie at a theater and came to the realization that all of the soda that you have drank has made you seriously have to use the restroom? Well, Louis Duprey has a solution to your problem. The only hitch is that his solution was patented in 1923. Duprey's solution, while logical, would be expensive and possibly not full of the technology that we are now accustomed to. Essentially, each chair would have a lift on it so that when a knob is turned, you would be lowered down to a floor below the theater, from which you could leave to take care of any problem that may arise. Check out the article to learn more about the invention!

10 Of The Strangest Patents In The World

A "Motorized Ice Cream Cone." 

A "Motorized Ice Cream Cone." 

Sometimes, patents are for inventions that can truly help to simplify our lives. Other times, patents are for inventions that are strange, impractical, and just plain weird. Take, for instance, the above "motorized ice cream cone." How many times have we watched people, especially small children, struggle with having ice cream run down their arm in the heat of summer? This "motorized ice cream cone" could be an especially useful invention, except for the fact that logistically, it is impractical. From the looks of the patent, this would be an invention that one would have to buy and carry around in their purse, waiting for the opportunity to get ice cream scooped into it. Then, when the time came, one would be left with a sticky ice cream cone that probably costs too much money to just be a disposable product. This leads to one product that probably will not sell, even with a patent.

When you travel, do you ever use some sort of travel agent? In a world filled with technology, travel agents must now be up to date and able to perform various tasks that in the past have never been needed before. What better way for a travel agent to stay up to date than for the "travel agent" to be your cellphone? 

Above is the patent illustration that Uber filed depicting how their "travel agent" would function. Essentially, a user could "input their start location, date, and time alongside a destination, and Uber would recommend an itinerary for them." However, "Uber will also organize your transportation as well."
