Yo quiero taco patent :-)

Posted on August 4, 2009. Filed under: intellectual property, research & development | Tags: |

Browsing the USPTO (patent & trademark office) listing of new patents is always interesting.  This one, published last Tuesday, caught my eye – Food tray insert for holding tacos.  I love it already!

Patent number 7,565,864 describes a food container insert designed to hold tacos upright in a food container and to “facilitate drainage of grease and juices from the taco filling away from the taco shell”.

You can learn the most amazing things when perusing patents.  In this one, as part of the “background” section, there’s a short history of tacos!    I’m having fun with this, but my real point – patents can be an excellent addition to your information research toolbox. 

And, as this patent illustrates, there are seemingly endless possibilities for innovation and invention. –nks
