Die Zentrifugal-Geburtsmaschine

Dieses Patent von Blonsky und Blonsky hat schon jetzt den Spitzenplatz für den Mad Science Award des Jahres gewonnen. Eine Geburtshilfemaschine für Menschen, die mit Zentrifugal-Kräften arbeitet… alleine diesen Satz zu schreiben fällt schon schwer. Weitere Patentskizzen gibt es bei Ptak Science Books.

„In their patent application, Blonsky and Blonsky explained the need: „In the case of a woman who has a fully developed muscular system and has had ample physical exertion all through the pregnancy, as is common with all more primitive peoples, nature provides all the necessary equipment and power to have a normal and quick delivery. This is not the case, however, with more civilised women, who often do not have the opportunity to develop the muscles needed in confinement.“

„Therefore, wrote Blonsky and Blonsky, they would provide „an apparatus which will assist the under-equipped woman by creating a gentle, evenly distributed, properly directed, precision-controlled force, that acts in unison with and supplements her own efforts“.
