Dr. NakaMats, inventor

Yoshiro Nakamatsu, a.k.a. Doctor NakaMats, is Japan's best known inventor. 

In fact he is more famous for being an inventor than actually inventing something as most of his inventions seem to be novelty items or subtle modifications of existing technology. Nevertheless, he is a real celebrity in Japan.

In late 2010, I visited him at his Tokyo home and H.Q. for a prospective article that never saw the light of day. In this segment of our long conversation, the Doctor talks about how Japan can be revitalized through an emphasis on non-material factors, like education, politics, and the spiritual.
