[Wired] NASA Puts Nanotechnology Swarm Patents Up for Auction

Psst. If you’re thinking of getting into the intelligent smoke-detector business or building a swarm of nano-bots, NASA has a few patents for you.

In fact, you might even get them at a bargain price. They’re up for auction Thursday in Los Angeles, at an event run by the patent-selling company ICAP Patent Brokerage. NASA (the National Aeronautics and Space Administration) is listing them as part of a pilot program that has been running for the past four years, trying to make its space-aged technology available to the public.

Who wouldn’t want a crack at the NASA patent, “Swarm Autonomic Agents with Self-Destruct Capability?”

they really need to STOP giving out patents for ideas instead of actual working prototypes. There you have it folks: you cannot actually invent nanobot swarms without paying somebody first, hows that for innovative freedom? Tell me this isn't ridiculous.
