What is non-obvious is having the design element reveal information that is not static.

As far stealing the idea being impossible because it hadn't come to market - That would be true only in the universe where patents are not available for public scrutiny. Inability to create a viable product with your innovation does not in any way diminish your rights in that innovation during the limited term of your patent. Failure to assert your rights under the patent does diminish them in fact if not in law.

Microsoft can negotiate to license this innovation, fight it in court, buy the innovator's firm or change their software. It is not like their hands are tied.
