Not just your ordinary LEGO

Posted by innovativeip on September 10, 2010

Today’s Patent of the Day is U.S. Patent no. 6,616,500, issued September 9, 2003, and entitled “Toy Building Set and a Vehicle Therefor”.

Today's Patent of the Day

At first glance, you may wonder how a LEGO vehicle could be patentable.  However, if you take a closer look, the vehicle of this Patent of the Day has a very unique set of axles, wherein each can pivot about a central point.  As a result, the axles do not have to remain parallel to one another, thus enabling the navigation of tight turns on a LEGO track.  Rather ingenious.  I’d like to get those on my car, please.

If you’d like to take a look at the particulars of the structure, you can read the entire patent at  Enjoy!
