Doku: The Invention of Dr. Nakamats


(Youtube Direktnakamats, via Tokyo Mango)

Dr. Nakamats ist eine japanische Berühmtheit, Sumo-Wrestler und verrückter Erfinder, der mehr als 3300 Patente hält und das da oben ist der Trailer zu einer Doku über den Mann. Jemand, der ferngesteuerte Rollschuhe mit Jeep-Reifen und umweltfreundlichen Antrieb erfindet, kann kein schlechter Mensch sein. 2008 hatte io9 schonmal was über Nakamats:

Yoshihiro NakaMats, 79, is Japan's most prolific - and bizarre - inventor. He claims to have 3,350 patents (Thomas Edison only had 1,093), and that several of them are for the floppy disk. "Everyone knows about the floppy disk," he says. "But I also invented the fax machine, automatic pachinko, and the taxi meter." While running for mayor of Tokyo last spring, he announced that he possessed three secret tools that would save the world from mass destruction: a device capable of turning North Korean missiles around in mid-air, a love potion more effective than Viagra that would reverse the declining birth rate, and a new water-to-fuel technology that fights global warming. The weird thing is that he could be telling the truth.
