MN Invents Volume I


MN INVENTS chronicles the colorful behind-the-scenes history of Minnesota’s fertile culture of innovation and invention. Encompassing things like the stored-memory computer, the pop-up toaster, the retractable safety belt, the in-ear hearing aid, water skis, Spam(!), and even a miniature helicopter piloted by mind control, the list of Minnesota-born inventions is long and gets longer every year. MN INVENTS is happy to introduce this cavalcade of ingenuity to the world.
