A quirky genius with a sharp wit and a provocative worldview, Dean Kamen is our era's Thomas Edison. He takes on the world's grand challenges one invention at a time. Best known for his Segway Human Transporter, Kamen has reconceived kidney dialysis, engineered an electric wheelchair that can travel up stairs (the Ibot), reworked the heart stent, built portable insulin pumps, founded FIRST robotics to inspire young students, and on and on.
Holder of over 440 patents, Kamen devotes himself to dreaming up products that improve people's lives. For the last 15 years, he has relentlessly pursued an effective way to clean up the world's water supply and has invented an energy efficient vapor compression distiller that can turn any unfit source of water (seawater, poisoned well water, river sludge, etc.) into potable, safe water without any need for chemical additives or filters. SlingShot is a film about an indomitable man who just might have enough passion, will, and innovative thinking to create a solution for a crisis that affects billions.
A film by Paul Lazarus [88 minutes]
