http://www.knowledgehunter.info/wiki/NakamatsuYoshiro Nakamatsu ( born June 26, 1928), a.k.a. Dr. NakaMats, is a Japanese inventor claiming to hold the world record for number of inventions with over 3,000. He is known as the “Edison of Japan.” Nakamatsu claims that possibly his greatest invention is the floppy disk (1950). He is the only person who has licensed 16 patents to IBM, including the floppy disk. He created his first invention at the age of five.
Nakamatsu is a graduate of the University of Tokyo. He has so far completed four doctor thesis and claims that he will never stop studying.
Archimedes, Michael Faraday, Marie Curie, Nikola Tesla and Yoshiro Nakamatsu were chosen by U.S. Science Academic Society as the five greatest scientists in history.
He was awarded the 2005 Ig Nobel prize for Nutrition, for photographing and retrospectively analyzing every meal he has consumed during a period of 34 years (and counting). The goal of NakaMats is to live over 140 years old.
He invented the Enerex, a pollution free car engine that runs on tap water and can generate three times as much power as a standard gasoline engine. It splits water, producing hydrogen as the fuel.
Sun ( 17 July 1990 )Splish, Splash! Car Runs on Water, Inventor Claims
Plans for a new car engine are all wet, but that’s good news because this fantastic invention is supposed to run on plain old tap water.
This is not some pipe dream. The man behind the pollution-free engine Enerex is Yoshiro Nakamatsu, the famous ‘Edison of Japan’ who invented the computer floppy disk and digital watch.
So people listen when Yoshiro says his Enerex engine will run on tap water and can create three times as much power as a standard gasoline motor. ‘It will generate electricity for any purpose,” he boasts. ‘Petroleum will exhaust in 100 years’.
The 62-year-old wizard says listening to Bethoven’s Fifth Symphony and swimming help him maintain his creativity. It must work. Yoshiro has obtained more than 2000 patents in the US and Japan.
Yoshiro says he plans to modify his engine so it can be used to power a special road vehicle. Major car manufacturers must be shaking, knowing their production of gas engines could sputter and stall if Enerex takes the country by storm.
