Hitachi Insert Searches For Inventors
In a recent issue of Wired, Hitachi placed an ad with an attached drink coaster. In the back of the coaster it ask people to sketch plans for a new device based on Hitachi hard drives, fill out an actual patent form on the back of the full page ad and "toast to your brilliance." Whether any patented inventions come from this insert or whether this coaster inset ever finds it's way into a bar, we may never know. You can't have enough drink coaster, though, so you might as well make use of Hitachi's. Images from Tian.
