Submission + - Thatcher to Brando: The unexpected inventors (humansinvent.com)

An anonymous reader writes: "There is a saying, ‘everyone has a book in them’ but I have a similar theory that everyone also has an invention in them, or at the very least, an idea for an improvement to an existing product. With this in mind, I began to wonder if my theory might apply to people in the public eye.
Are there inventions and patents being quietly filed by people we are all familiar with, and if so, what might their patents tell us about these people when they are out of the spotlight? Using Google’s Patent Search engine, I decided to investigate, and to my delight, I have discovered dozens of bizarre ‘celebrity Inventions."
