Episode Summary

EDIT
Interviews: Jeff Hawkins
AIRED:
Jeff Hawkins is a man whose inventions are bigger than many people's imaginations. Born on the North Shore of Long Island in 1950, he was raised on innovation. In an interview with Pen Computing Magazine, Hawkins describes his father as a "consummate inventor" who raised Jeff and his brothers in a "crazy house where they had a good time." In Hawkins' case, a good time meant building all manner of floating objects, the biggest of which was a floating platform that operated as a hovercraft on the water. The 50 ton vessel, christened "Sea Space", was powered by a household vacuum. Hawkins got his first taste of the profit potential of his inventions when a local orchestra purchased Sea Space and used it to float up to the shoreline and perform for beachgoers.moreless
