Great Inventors: James Dyson - Episode 63
When you think about James Dyson, you probably think he is just a guy that invented an expensive vacuum cleaner, and you would almost be right.

To his inventor cred, he also created that disgusting air blade to dry your hands and a handful of other inventions. Really cool though, Dyson is the biggest supporter of robotics in the UK! He is way more interesting than one would think, so take a half hour and hear why.
