Michelangelo Is Working In Apple’s Patent Filing Department [Humor]

Hey, drawing hands is hard!

As spotted by the beautiful souls over at Reddit, someone in Apple’s patent filing department seems to have taken a shortcut in illustrating an application for way to make a touchscreen iMac useable by tracing the hands of of the divine Renaissance artist, painter and sculptor, Michelangelo.
