I’m suing Samsung

Posted January 20 into Science and Tech by John Birmingham

I totally invented their projected keyboard on a cafe table in Weapons of Choice.

The New York Post reporters:

In the realm of traditional technology, CES 2020 continues to deliver gadgets both revolutionary and bizarre.

Samsung unveiled a new, experimental smartphone feature that can create an AI-powered “invisible keyboard” on the surface of any desk or tabletop.

The South Korean tech giant’s “SelfieType” keyboard app uses a phone’s front-facing selfie camera to track the movements of a user’s fingers as they tap out words and sentences on any flat surface. An artificial-intelligence engine analyzes the movements and converts them into text on a smartphone, tablet or laptop.

How much do you think I can get?

The real money will be when someone invents a working time machine and you can claim royalties on that, once you fight of the Estate of H.G. Wells of course.

I wonder if it would be enough to fuck their patent application. It is possible to submit prior art to the patent office as a third party. It would be interesting, especially as Samsung would have to address it and that response would be published.

Good luck, I'm unfamiliar with the ins and outs of commercial law, is it still settled in a trial by combat?

hrmmm can't copyright an idea, you can patent an idea/invention , but its got to be working to get approved.

But hey, Disney made Mickey Mouse exist as property forever, so lets ask Scotty from Marketing about it and get things changed for you.

Its only fair.
