We're willing to bet that today you have used one of Stanford Ovshinsky's inventions. Yes, you, the reader of this profile. Yes, today!
The odds are in Ovshinsky's favor, as he held over 400 patents, many of them for technological inventions that have become ubiquitous. (Some, like re-writable CD discs, a little less so.) Have you watched TV today? Ovshinsky is responsible for the flat screen LCD. Have you driven a car? If you got a hybrid or electric, Ovshinsky's battery is likely in there.
Have you used a computer or cellphone? What kind of a stupid question is that? Of course, you have! Well, the rechargeable batteries in it owe their existence to Ovshinsky as well.
What's this? You don't watch TV? You still drive a gas guzzler? You don't own a computer or a cell phone? Then how are you reading this profile? Someone printed it out for you and you are reading it on an actual piece of paper?
You win! But not really...
