SLINGSHOT

Dean Kamen invented the Segway and lives in a house with secret passages, a helicopter garage, a closet full of denim clothes and a massive 19th-century steam engine filling its atrium. His latest passion: the SlingShot water purification system created to obliterate half of human illness on the planet. Kamen reminisces about inventing home dialysis technology and choosing to forego parenthood while lamenting he has only one lifetime for inventing. – TM
