U.S. Patents Awarded to Inventors in Colorado (Dec. 11)

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Targeted News Service Targeted News Service ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 11 -- The following federal patents were awarded to inventors in Colorado.

*** Colorado Inventor Develops Patent for Angular Momentum Torque Enhancement for Spherical Vehicles ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 11 -- Gregory C. Schroll, Fort Collins, Colo., has developed a patent (8,322,471) for an "angular momentum torque enhancement for spherical vehicles." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An apparatus and method are described for utilizing internally generated angular momentum for supplementing the propulsion of a mobile spherical vehicle capable of motion by rolling over terrain, thereby enabling such vehicles to climb steeper inclines and overcome larger obstacles. Torque generated by counter-rotating gyroscopes was used to supplement gravity generated torque produced by a pendulum drive propulsion system. Precession torque may be generated along a desired axis by changing the angular momentum of the gyroscopes while leaving its magnitude unaffected." The patent application was filed on Nov. 16, 2009 (12/619,582). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,22,471.PN.&OS=PN/83,22,471&RS=PN/83,22,471 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.
