Get smart: ‘Invention USA’ on the hunt for the next great idea

In semi-rapid succession others followed. Food Network’s “Invention Hunters,” is a quest to find the next great food invention while PBS has “Everyday Edisons,” which, being PBS, is looking for inventions that will change the way we live. Then there’s Planet Green’s “Dean of Invention” hosted by Dean Kamen, the Segway inventor, —not to be confused with the owner of the Segway company Jimi Heselden, who met his untimely demise when he drove his Segway off a cliff. Kamen is always on the search for ecologically safe things, like how to turn human waste into coal.
