I thought the plucked hair patent belongs to Gho. But now Aderans has their own patent on the same thing?

Gho was way ahead of his time. That has been obvious to me for quite-a-while, and I think it is going to become more obvious to everybody as time goes on. On this forum, Gho is a dirty word, but over at ARI, the scientists there have a great respect for his single-handed pioneering effort and early vision in this field. As Washenik once put it, “he (Gho) foresaw the others.”

It is a shame that early pioneers often have to take all of the criticism and crap, but it is the others that come along and mop up the profits while encountering way less critism and resistance to their efforts of advancing the technology forward. But that is how new ideas tend to progress.
