Dr NakaMats May Have Invented Nearly Everything You Hold Dear

Dr NakaMats May Have Invented Nearly Everything You Hold Dear

This man says he invented over 3000 things including floppies and springy-shoes – frequently while diving underwater until the point of near-death. He basically thinks Thomas Edison’s an uneducated wimp who quit at 1093 inventions. Sounds ridiculous? Watch this:

Part of me wants to believe that Yoshiro “Dr NakaMats” Nakamatsus’ story is just a cleverly spun tale, that no man can be this brilliant and prolific of an inventor while still maintaining a sense of humour. But then I recall some horrifying karaoke nights and realise that only an individual with a wicked taste for the absurd could’ve wrought such a horror.

Aside from karaoke machines, NakaMats also claims to have invented floppy disks, a weird golf putter, compact disc players, digital watches, springy-shoes, hydrogen-powered engines, a crazy arm chair that which may or may not have made some man’s cancer worse, and a lot more. Sure, there’s talk that he may be a complete loon who’s just spouting lies and barely invented anything, but who cares? The man’s amusing on video. [Motherboard]
