Samsung was granted a design patent yesterday for a baffling desktop that defies convention. Is it something already on the market that I'm just not aware of? Is it something that Samsung is really thinking of bringing to market? Other than providing standard backside ports, nothing about this design could be explained by simply looking at it. What is the single large nob for? What do the connectable components do? Does a display screw into one of the rounded docks?
Samsung wins Design Patent for a new Desktop
Samsung won a design patent this week for a "Desktop" as noted in the patent figures below. It boggles the imagination. In the specific patent figure directly below Samsung notes that the desktop figure below supports two "unclaimed components." Even the components are off-the-wall.
Unfortunately Samsung's design patent doesn't explain anything about the components or the "desktop" in general. We are provided with only patent figures as is the case with all design patents in the U.S.
Samsung filed for this U.S. design patent back in Q1 2016. It was granted yesterday. If you happen to know what this design is for or if it exists and I simply can't find it, then please send in a comment below with a link to it somewhere on the web. If it is in fact new and you want to take a guess at what it could be for, be my guest and send in a comment.
