Patents via PDF

Pt 2139
This site is super handy (pat2pdf) you can get a patent sent to you via PDF instead of a staring at a bunch of TIFFs!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. I usually use google patent search: http://www.google.com/patent

    It returns results in pdf as well.

  2. Or just look up the same patent on Google and view it in your browser:

    http://www.google.com/patents

  3. I concur! Google patents is where it’s at!

  4. Or use this handy script, which essentially does the same.

    The images from the USPTO are usually much better resolution than PDFs from Google.
    We also used them in this project: Perpetual Storytelling Apparatus http://storyteller.allesblinkt.com

  5. I see you’ve found my favorite patent….
