Over 300 patents were filed under the name of Apple’s former CEO, the late Steve Jobs. Many of the product designs protected under those patents have changed the way we learn, communicate and live. National Public Radio recently interviewed Jobs biographer, Walter Isaacson regarding Jobs’ role in bringing these revolutionary designs to life.

The exhibit The Patents and Trademarks of Steve Jobs: Art and Technology that Changed the World is showing at the Smithsonian’s S. Dillon Ripley Center in Washington, D.C. now through July 8, 2012.
