Is this brilliant SpokePOV idea patented?

Hi,

I think this SpokePOV is a brilliant idea and totally impressed me. Actually I got interested in microcontrollers when few years ago I saw an other professional company selling similar stuff. I was suprised why I didn't see this device on every second bike when its so funny. Obviously it is patented and it may block its spreading.

Isn't it an issue if I buy adafruit version of it or build my improved RGB version?
Could you please help with this, because I know nothing about the topic.

Thanks,
Zoltán

The SpokePOV is an open-source project. You are free to modify and/or improve upon it. If you search the forums, there was a nice RGB version that someone posted here a while ago.
