Slingshot is about Segway inventor Dean Kamen, an indomitable man who just might be creating a solution for a crisis affecting billions.
A quirky genius, Dean Kamen lives in a house with secret passages, a closet full of denim and a helicopter garage. His latest passion is the SlingShot water purification system, actually a 15-year quest to obliterate half of human illness on the planet. An eccentric genius with a provocative worldview, Kamen takes on grand-challenges one invention at a time, helping people in need. Half of all human illness comes from water-borne pathogens. Kamen’s SlingShot is an energy-efficient machine that turns any unfit water (seawater, poisoned wells, river sludge…) into pure, safe water – no chemicals or filters needed.
Recently, Kamen allied himself with Coca-Cola . Will Kamen’s technological know-how combined with Coke’s global reach be a powerful enough force to address this global challenge? Find out at the next Greens N Grains Dinner and a Movie Night on Thursday, March 17.
SlingShot is both an inspirational character study and a look at the trajectory of Kamen’s vapor compression distiller from its earliest development through recent trials in rural Ghana and beyond.
