Brilliant:

"Figure 3 is a perspective view of the completely satisfied spectator"

Reads like a patent from a u/dys-topian future world.

Fantastic. The inventor of this tool should apply for a patent.

Now, we just need to figure out how to work this out in reverse, so we can take all the inane patent applications and figure out what they're actually trying to patent.

Given how accommodating the USPTO has been lately, this alternately amuses and terrifies me.

Maybe you should have waited for the author to post the promise web version. I remember when the swing-ifier was posted on Metafilter but only as code, and the inputs were different between the different provided programs, causing the average non-coder-type-person to curl up in a ball and weep at its impenetrably inscrutable behavior. Of course, as things stand now, if anyone posts the web version on the front page when it comes out, the most likely response will be 'dupe, flagged, mod plz delete'. Yay.
