I think I shared this once before when part one of the invention came out, but
it was fun to see this again. I basically made all the drawings for my own
invention.

It looks like a complicated game of hurdles. I don't think the game will 
be added to the Olympics any time soon, though.

An interesting use of POV-ray!

From looking at your patent pages in Firefox's built-in PDF viewer, it seems
that the images have been down-sized to a *low* greyscale resolution--i.e.,
compressing them into something like 4-bits of greyscale tones or less-- or else
the images were scanned(?) for printing, with a coarse-dot 'screen' during the
scan. (Sorry if I'm not explaining that well.) In other words, the POV images
look like a coarse newpaper rendition (which eliminates much of their detail and
tonal differences.) I'm curious if that's a normal result when submitting
higher-resolution/contiuous tone artwork to the patent office.
