Hero of The Week: Dean Kamen

After watching Iron Man over the weekend, Dean Kamen seams like a logical choice for this weeks hero. If there was someone flying around in a super high tech metal suit saving peoples lives, I'm pretty sure it would be Dean Kamen. I've been fascinated by Kamen ever since I saw him demoing the iBOT many years ago and then heard him say,"You have teenagers thinking they're going to make millions as NBA stars when that's not realistic for even 1 percent of them. Becoming a scientist or engineer is." Later I read an article (that I can't seem to find now) about his private island where his lab is deep underground, acessible only through an elevator in his house.
