Battery Patent from Microsoft

I don’t think I would have thought that this patent would have come from Microsoft.

InstaLoad is a patent for designing devices so that batteries can be inserted  either way, regardless of polarity.Instaload

I think this is great – sometimes it is difficult to see the markings for positive and negative on the devices. Duracell has already licensed the technology. However, Microsoft is giving it royalty-free  to companies that make products for people with hearing, vision or learning disabilities. Good one, Microsoft!
