National Inventors Hall of Fame Moved to USPTO

The National Inventors Hall of Fame has relocated to the museum at the USPTO campus in Alexandria, Virginia. To celebrate the move, the Hall of Fame created a new display about its inductees entitled "Inventive Links." The display shows how the inventions, patents, trademarks, and circumstances of the lives of the almost 400 inventors inducted into the Hall of Fame are interconnected. It reveals how their seemingly unrelated inventions have led to major technological achievements. Information about inductees' lives is also available from an interactive kiosk.
