The Dean of Invention: Bringing Science Fiction to Reality


Interested in getting an early look at the breakthrough technologies of tomorrow? The Planet Green’s Dean of Invention show, featuring legendary inventor Dean Kamen, premieres Friday, October 22:

“Dean Kamen is a globally renowned inventor with more than 400 patents, including the Segway, the insulin pump and the robotic prosthetic “Luke Arm.” This fall, the inventor will play the role of investigator—leaving his private island to jet around the world in search of the technologies of tomorrow. In the world premiere original series Dean of Invention, Planet Green joins Kamen on his quest to find the next scientific breakthroughs that will improve life for all mankind. Dean of Invention airs in Planet Green’s VERGE primetime block at 10/9c beginning on Friday, October 22.

Dean of Invention follows Kamen and correspondent Joanne Colan as they explore the emerging technologies being developed to tackle the most daunting global challenges of today. In each episode, Kamen and Colan encounter the world’s latest cutting-edge creations by embedding themselves with leading scientists, doctors and inventors. From space-age robotics to artificial intelligence to biological breakthroughs, Dean of Invention reveals the visionary scientific advancements that have the ability to reinvent the future.”

I’ll be at the “Dean of Invention” TV premiere launch party in Brooklyn this week and will be posting photos, tweets and Facebook updates from the event. (Thanks, Maia!) Dean Kamen will also be showcasing FIRST, a non-profit organization for advancing the study of engineering and robotics for teens.
