• Pyon Pyon spring shoes – shoes with leaf springs on their soles so you can bounce around which makes walking a lot easier
• Cerebrex – an armchair that improves mental functions such as calculation and thinking by cooling the head and heating the feet
• The Water Engine Car - a car that runs on only water
• Underwater Notebook – notebook that is useable under water so he can record his inventions

  4. I think I heard he's also taken a picture of every meal he ate for the last several odd years. Is this the same guy? He seems like a kind of eccentric but awesome genius. Thanks for sharing (and sorry for my recent absence from the blogosphere--I return now).
