Segway inventor designs an energy efficient island home
Dean Kamen has given a whole new meaning to energy conservation. His home, is a lighthouse on North Dumpling Island, off the Connecticut coast but technically a part of New York state. He is the inventor of Segway scooter and other devices, and so his new island home called ‘nation’ also comprises of devices that perform the same job. He has also installed solar, wind and geothermal systems throughout the house. He claims it is a fully self-powered house with a lot of LED’s and has no room for incandescent lights. Making lighting the key asset in the house, he has tried to make the island zero-carbon and a net producer of energy.
