My brother started on a research grant freshly out of MiT. Today the devices his company is creating using off the shelf parts is saving lives all over the world in poor and 3rd world countries. He spends most of his time presenting papers all over the world and working with hospitals to save as many lives as possible.

Super proud of my brother and thought I would share it.

He also did a post doc in the Sloan engine laboratory at MiT, if you have never been there it's a pretty amazing place with some really amazing projects going on. Heck MiT in general is really cool.

Cool, is he Canadian too? His invention may lead to him being famous not just now, but for a very long time.

He is Canadian but married to a wonderful American woman and he's in Boston. Miss that I don't get to see him regularly. frown

Great work, and you also need to get your bro to post here as an expert in automotive combustion!
Maybe he can teach us the secrets of LSPI...

He's usually always on a plane headed somewhere so his time is limited. I can ask though... smile

That's incredible! What a great invention! I love that he built it out of "garbage" car sensors, some great out of the box thinking there.
