DEAN KAMEN HONORED AS IPOEF INVENTOR OF THE YEAR
The IPO Education Foundation is delighted to announce that DEAN KAMEN will receive the Foundation’s Inventor of the Year Award for his Slingshot™ Water Distillation System. The Award honors inventors whose creations have made a significant impact on national economies or quality of life. The Slingshot™ system boils and evaporates dirty water, allowing the pure water to condense and be collected. The system can produce 10 gallons of water an hour on less than one kilowatt of electricity. It is being increasingly used in developing countries. Kamen is best known for his invention of the Segway personal transporter.
The Inventor of the Year Award will be presented at the IPO Education Foundation Awards Dinner on December 10 in Washington, DC.
