I’ve always had a fondness for Dean Kamen and his engineering company, Deka. His stair-climbing wheelchair is inspiring. He was a long-time customer of my father’s business (AutoCAD distributor). He lives in my home town. And he’s a benefactor of the world’s largest Lego minifig-scale installation (https://www.see-sciencecenter.org/visitors/millyard-project.aspx) which is very near the Deka offices.
This article includes a flattering bio of him as a person, and goes into depth about one of his most interesting projects.
