Personal Tales of Innovation: Determining the Value of a Patent, Part Two.

In my last blog post, I talked about my seven criteria for valuating a patent.

The Reality of Augmented Reality Intellectual Property

Recent developments are proving that the virtual reality industry is succeeding in making immersive tech more affordable for consumers. But while it's more commonly thought of as belonging to the gaming and entertainment realms, it is used in many other areas, including the military, education, and medicine. No doubt, it's well on its way to complete world immersion. But for now, let’s take a close look into one of its original, and more whimsical, uses—an area that is (for good reason) being heavily invested in: augmented reality gaming on mobile devices.
