Oh, great -- that's _sure_ to improve quality of the patents coming out of a USPTO that's already pretty disconnected from reality. Can I be the first to patent my very own energy-saving device:
"Energy is delivered by a manually controlled electrical power circuit (1) for supplying power to an electrical load (3) requiring electrical power from an electrical outlet comprising an insulating lever (4) which can be actuated by one of several most distal parts of a limb, including but not limited to fingers and toes, present in humans and other vertebrates. The motion of the lever (4) produces positive action to close contacts (2) and to apply power to the load. Arbitrarily large energy savings can be realized by moving lever (4) in the opposite direction, opening contacts (2) and removing power from the load."
