In 2015, I did some research on curves (the sort of curves made if you play with a guitar string or a piece of springy wire), and my employer, Robert Bosch GmbH, decided to patent it. The patent application is now listed. Here’s a blog post describing my work.
Honestly, I don’t know if my patent will make any money for Bosch. The computer graphics industry doesn’t really buy patent licenses (a lot of companies would rather make do without), but other engineering fields sometimes will (e.g., the animation industry won’t license T-Splines, but engineering firms do). Anyway, I just thought I’d share this; I’m so excited.Published in
