Get Your Gears Turning - The Curious World of Patent Models - Hudson River Museum
Through January 01, 2012 - Yonkers

America's manufacturing success is primarily due to the dreams and inventions of its many citizens. Few people realize that from the time Thomas Jefferson formed the U.S. Patent Office in 1790, and throughout the American Industrial Revolution, inventors were required to submit a working, scale model of their inventions, when applying for a patent. "Problem-solving with American ingenuity" is seen in more than 50 intricately crafted, working scale, one-of-a-kind models of inventions that were submitted to the U.S. Patent Office from the 1880s through the early 1900s. Intriguing to viewers of all ages, gadget- and invention-buffs, and everyday folks, the inventions are now a permanent part of our culture from the first patented rocking chair and foldout bed to a burglar alarm. The Rothschild Collection is the world's largest gathering of viewable U.S. Patent Models. Through January 1, 2012.
