Iconoclast, Kamen is a modern hero. His inventions, mostly medical devices, help people in need and ease suffering. SlingShot is a film about an indomitable man who just might have enough passion, will, and innovative thinking to create a solution for the dire water crisis that affects billions.
A quirky genius with a sharp wit and a provocative worldview, Kamen is our era's Thomas Edison. He takes on the world's grand challenges one invention at at time. Best known for his Segway Human Transporter, Kamen has reconceived kidney dialysis, engineered an electric wheelchair that can climb 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.
