Lonnie Johnson former NASA Engineer was awarded $72.9 million dollars over disputed royalties on Wednesday from Hasbro. Interesting guy - he holds over 80 patents one of which was the Johnson Thermo-Electrochemical Converter System, named a top 10 patent by Popular Mechanics in 2009.

Awesome, I had been following this story and forgot about it.

Its always nice hearing an inventor getting his due, so many horror stories of people developing things and companies robbing them of all their work with out so much as thanking them.

Agreed. Like those late night tv commercials, "Bring you invention to us and we''ll help you patent it."

What they do is steal it from you.

Had to look up that other invention in Wiki…
