    My office has been super quiet this morning so I thought I'd go on a expedition in the USPTO patent & patent application records. Guess what - there is cool Oakley stuff in there.

    Aside from the historical significance and very cool patent drawings (x-metals, plate, c-six hinge, etc)...

    It's a great way to see what the design gurus are working on.

    X-Metal Patents:
    Romeo 1: D410,484;
    Mars: D408,049; D422,618; D427,226
    Juliet / XX: D422,298

    Elite:
    C-Six: 8,444,265;

    I will be editing this post over a few days, trying to exhaustively add links to some of the cooler patents I mentioned above. My little contribution to the community. Keep me going on the project by liking this post!!

    With that said... Looks like the Google Glass is getting "Thump"-ed. Which kind of makes sense.

    There are tons of them. Use Google Patent Search to really explore. I've done it and it gives you a feeling of the original inspiration and exclusivity Oakley had designing all the legends.
