A new exhibit showcasing hundreds of original Apple patents has opened in Denver.

Entitled “Patents and Trademarks of Steve Jobs: Art and Technology that Changed the World,” the display offers a rare opportunity to look over some of the most influential and important patents in recent tech history — ranging from the original Macintosh through the iPhone.

Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet says that the exhibit, “provides a unique glimpse into one of our country’s most iconic innovators, highlighting Jobs’ wide-ranging portfolio and lasting influence on modern technology.”

The exhibition will be open through September this year, and is free to members of the public. On loan from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the patent collection coincides with the opening of a new satellite USPTO office in Denver.

Oh, and if you see men in Samsung shirts running the various applications through the Xerox machine while you’re visiting, remember to wing Tim Cook an email. Chances are they may be up to no good.
