Saturday is Dr. Yoshiro Nakamatsu Day at the Comfort Inn

The Colorado Springs Independent reports:

He invented the floppy disk, digital displays and has more patents — upwards of 3,200 — to his name than Thomas Edison.

He photographed every meal he’s eaten since the 1970s, which won him a 2005 Ig Nobel Prize (for useless research).

He’s run for mayor of Tokyo numerous times, and lost.

He’s Dr. Yoshiro Nakamatsu, or Dr. NakaMats, as he’s also known, and he’s coming to Colorado courtesy of the International Tesla Society, which is based here. You can meet him Saturday [May 10, 2014] from 2-4 p.m. at the Comfort Inn in Manitou Springs, which will be celebrating Dr. Yoshiro Nakamatsu Day.

Nakamatsu is quite a character, as evidenced by this 1995 article with the New York Times‘ David Lazarus.
