Google patents
« on: December 14, 2006, 12:03:58 PM »
I've just found http://www.google.com/patents - it lets you search a load of US patents.  There are some great (if wordy) diabolo history gems in there if you search for 'diabolo', including the 1907 patent for the whistling 'diabolo bobbin' and a rather special 'diabolo type toy device', complete with floor based launcher.   

I'm still flicking through them - thought people here would like a look too.

I think that's the same as the setup I've seen in an old (Pathe, perhaps) newsreel.   I'll try to find it, but don't remember which computer I had it on.
