Soundwave Research files patent applications on improved photographic processes
In preparation for funding and commercialization, we have or are prepared to apply for patents regarding improvements to instant photographic articles, and also a new direct positive system. While simply applying for a patent does not automatically mean it will be granted, there is a good likelihood that one or more patents will issue. Even though this has been run as an open source project, it is incumbent on us to properly file when new, useful and non-obvious discoveries are made, as investors expect it and sometimes require that intellectual property be protected. A number of discoveries have been made, departing greatly from what was, long ago, the starting point of T55, and could become quite valuable, as old T55 is too complex, requires expensive tooling, and an elaborate supply chain.
