    Arthur C. Clarke invented the geostationary satellite. I think that beats a toy train switch for a spaz.

    Leon Theramin: spy, inventor, musician.

    Albert Einstein: widely known as a physicist, invented a refrigerator with no mechanism; the only moving part is the fluid.

    Uri Geller: cellphone radiation shield.

    Walt Disney, George Lucas, and Steven Spielberg have each made several innovations related to film-making, some of which have been patented.

    Gerry1of1, It was Lou Costello. Bud was Abbott`s first name. Nevertheless, I agree it was an invention that makes an important difference in my life.
