    There's a stair-case like that at a local shopping... and it's been there since about 95/96. He copied it.
    Wow, the man IS manic. Obsessive-possessive ?

    Yeah I have walked up many like this, I bet they were never patented, after all who would patent a staircase? More to the point the IPad is patented as a "Portable Display Device" this could cover no end of different equipment, all of his top 10 patents have pretty generic names, IPod is a "portable music player" so was the Sony Walkman. He is a smart guy with an eye for making money.

    I wasnt even aware it was possible to patent an entire staircase. The materials maybe.

    Wow. Just wow.

    Of course they do.

    Except they're plastic.

    And they only go in one direction.

    And there are no railings.
