Santa Claus Detector

The Santa Claus Detector is a device patented by Thomas Cane in 1996.

The most widely recognized and embraced folklore by young children is Santa Claus - a plump, white-bearded and red-suited gentlemen who delivers presents to 'good' children at Christmas time. To young children, the arrival of Santa Claus on Christmas Eve is an event filled with joy. Indeed, it is the culmination of days filled with great anticipation and expectation.

The Santa Claus Detector is therefore an object of the present invention to provide a children's device capable of providing selective illumination to signal the arrival of Santa Claus. This is particularly important to young children, providing reassurance that the child's good behavior has in fact been rewarded by Santa Claus.
Santa Claus Detector patent #5523741.

To see why the Presurfer still matters in the blogosphere:
