Retro Patents

It is way too easy to forget that the technology we use every single day had to, at some point, start out as an idea being drafted out on paper or on the computer screen. Retro Patents reminds us all of the humble beginnings of our daily tech by imagining what they would look like when submitted to the U.S. Patent office.

With prints ranging from Steve Jobs’ iPhone to the buzzy Tesla Model S, you can have your pick of a wide variety of fun and influential tech. Our personal favorites may be the electronic calculator, the Atari, and the trusty Gameboy from Nintendo. The prints are made up of more than just physical patents, however. Buyer’s also have the opportunity to frame PayPal’s poster, Airbnb, and even Larry Page’s PageRank from 1998. You can get these in 12 by 18 inches or 24 by 36. Prices start at $27. [Purchase]
