Dean (Kamen) of Invention

Dean Kamen, inventor of the Segway, recently unveiled his latest project: a television show by the name of Dean of Invention.  Teaming up with Planet Green and correspondent Joann Colan, Kamen will travel the globe investigating and exploring today’s most innovative and creative technologies.  Together, Kamen and Colan will encounter and interview leading scientists and inventors in pursuit of technological breakthroughs “that will improve life for all mankind.”

Last year Kamen spoke at the Wilson Center about his water purification project which is designed to provide clean drinking water to the 1.1 billion people who currently do not have access.  Commenting on the daunting challenges anyone faces when they address a task as monumental as providing access to clean drinking water the world over, Kamen noted, “I’d rather work on the really big stuff.”
