A quirky genius with a sharp wit and a provocative worldview, Dean Kamen takes on the world's grand challenges, one invention at a time. Best known for his Segway Human Transporter, Kamen has re-conceived kidney dialysis, engineered an electric wheelchair that can travel up stairs (the Ibot), reworked the heart stent, built portable insulin pumps and founded FIRST robotics to inspire young students. Holder of over 440 patents, Kamen devotes himself to dreaming up products that improve people's lives. And for the last 15 years, he has relentlessly pursued an effective way to clean up the world's water supply.
