"I feel I’ve not only seen the future, but am immersed in the details of these tragic cases…" says Ken Burns about False Conviction, the new iBook we’ve just produced with Jim Dwyer and The Innocence Project. Here’s the trailer.

To celebrate the last day of our “22 Days Of Invention” series, we wanted to give something back to the Tumblrverse. So, we had our friends at Tattly print temporary tattoos of Thomas Edison’s lightbulb patent. 
Hit us up with some fan mail if you want one. UPDATE: Thanks for the response! Alas, there are no more tattoos. The fine print says you must be 18 or over and a resident of the U.S. for us to send you one. Additionally, Tumblr didn’t endorse, administer or sponsor these tats, and only the GE social media team will receive participant information. 

GE inventor tattoos?!
