The R&D Dept.: Local patents

Some technical stuff this week, including a genetic marker from a VCU lab and some materials processes. And a drinking game innovation for “Beer Pong.”

The R&D Dept.: Local Patents for 9.29.10

RBS has started a new data section of patents issued to local inventors. Many of them are technical. For example this week, a handful of inventors were issued a patent for a cabinet storage bin that has a lifting mechanism. Also, Philip Morris has a new patent for an aromatic pocket tear tape for a cigarette pack.
