    Just watched a great documentary called Slingshot about Dean Kamen. Probably most known for inventing the Segway. He's always interested me and the doc is great. (It's streaming on Netflix.) During the closing credits they show him playing a machine that is definitely custom. (Perhaps by him?) I figured I'd ask here if anyone knows anything about it.

    That's pretty neat. I liked that documentary. Didn't catch the custom pinball at the end.

    This quote in particular stood out..
    "I tell every kid I meet, figure out something you really love to do. Get so good at it, that you can make a living doing it. If you don't do that.. you're cheating yourself out of a happy, meaningful life."

    Kind of how I feel about life, if you aren't doing something that's fulfilling or meaningful to you -- or that's making you happy often, then you're just existing -- not LIVING.

    I believe he also invented the insulin pump that has enabled countless diabetics to have better lives.

    The thought a few years ago was that it was or had similarities to Embryon.

    They quickly show another view of the play field. I do see that it could of started as an Embryon
