Runaway Technology, Inc. announced on November 28, 2000 the grant of US
entitled 'Digital composition of a mosaic image.' Widely known as
"Photomosaics®," the innovations claimed in the patent are the creation
of Runaway Technology President and CEO Robert Silvers. A Photomosaic
combines the art of photography with the science of image computing to
produce original works of art. A Photomosaic works by arranging thousands of
tiny photographs that when viewed from a distance, combine to form a single
larger image. Photomosaics have been featured on the covers of Sports
Life and Playboy, touted on "Oprah," CNN and "Dateline," and have been
fashioned into movie posters, puzzles and games.
"By being granted this patent in the United States and other countries, we
can protect our proprietary innovations and continue to make unique
artwork," Silvers said. "We intend to protect our rights vigilantly and will
license rights to select companies."
