Michael Jackson Patent

Many people believe Michael Jackson is just a singer and performer when he also was an inventor of a patent on a “Method and Means for Creating Anti-Gravity Illusion” (U.S. Patent No. 5,255,452).  The patent is for a shoe system that allows the shoe wearer to lean forwardly beyond their center of gravity (a slot within the heel of the shoe would removably engage a hitch member on the stage by the wearer simply sliding the shoe forward).  See U.S. Patent No. 5,255,452.
