My Patent Face-Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl Half Time

Hey Little Monsters-Here are some inventions/patents relating to Lady Gaga’s Half Time Show.

Microphone

In 1827, Sir Charles Wheatstone was the first person to coin the phrase “microphone.” In 1876, Emile Berliner invented the first microphone used as a telephone voice transmitter. … In 1878, the carbon microphone was invented by David Edward Hughes, and later developed during the 1920s.

Fire on Stage/Pyrotechnics

Apparently this has been going on longer than we thought:

The theater has depicted fire for centuries, of course. The representation of fire has been one of opera’s preoccupations since the beginning of the genre. In Act 1 of Landi’s Il Sant’ Alessio (1631) the fires of hell seem to consume a stage filled with demons (Fig. 1). In the prologue of Lully’s Cadmus et Hermione, “a rain of fire spreads over the whole stage.” And Metastasio’s Didone abbandonata (first set to music by Domenico Sarro in 1724) culminates in the destruction of Dido’s palace by fire, into which the heroine throws herself. These were among many seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century operas with stage directions calling for fire

With Mohr IP Law you don’t have to worry about getting caught in a “Bad Romance”.  Just pick up the “Telephone” so “You and I” can talk about intellectual property protections. We aren’t perfect or a “Perfect Illusion,” but we are kind and hard working. Maybe we were “Born This Way?”
