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!!
