Dean Kamen

He brought us the Segway but also so much more: The Luke prosthetic arm is something way beyond those monkey robots. Kamen’s made a career of thinking differently. He revolutionized dialysis treatments, created a stair-climbing wheelchair, all before unleashing the Segway on the world. His newest project is a lightweight arm that’s fully customizable and lets the wearer pick up a grape and eat it. Kamen’s also working on a version controlled fully by the user’s thought, which can be read non-invasively using infrared.

I mostly like old, unpopular things, like from 2002. I'm also 102 years old.
