In recognition of Steve Jobs’ contributions to technology, the Smithsonian’s S. Dillon Ripley Center will display the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s exhibit, “The Patents and Trademarks of Steve Jobs: Art and Technology that Changed the World.” The exhibit includes a display of 30 4-by-8-foot panels made to resemble iPhones, showcasing more than 300 patents and trademarks granted to Jobs throughout this career. Each panel displays facsimiles of the front pages of 12 patents granted to Jobs, totaling 312 of the 317 he acquired in his lifetime.
