Abstract: As an inventor and entrepreneur, Dean Kamen's life brims with scientific achievements. His portfolio of patents ranges from helicopter designs to heating and cooling machines. In early 2003, he came out with the ‘Segway Human Transporter’ (Segway HT) which had its origins in one of his previous innovations – the ‘iBot’, a six wheeled mobility device with balancing mechanism for the disabled. In 2003, he came out with the low cost, low power, water purifier (nicknamed 'Slingshot'), designed specifically for solving drinking water problems in the Third World countries.
