Method and device

Sam Lavigne's Patent Generator transforms literary and philosophical texts into patent applications.

So! Kafka's The Hunger Artist becomes "An apparatus and device for staring into vacancy." Heidegger's The Question Concerning Technology becomes "A device and system for belonging to bringing-forth." And—my personal favorite—​The Communist Manifesto becomes "A method and device for comprehending theoretically the historical movement."
