This is an old idea, maybe six years old? My former employer wanted to get a patent for it, then they decided not to pursue the patent. This happens from time to time, patents are expensive. But now, the patent application is in the public domain, which means no one can patent the idea. That is pretty cool, because anyone can build on these ideas, for FREE.
