Saul Griffith is an inventor whose designs look like they're straight out of science fiction: wind turbines that float like kites, and inflatable robots that resemble walking animal balloons. The San Francisco-based co-founder of Squid Labs talks about his latest creations, his comic book for inventive kids, and his vision for the future of renewable energy. It's part of Forum's "First Person" series where we talk to the leaders and thinkers who make the Bay Area unique.

Host: Scott Shafer

Guests:

  • Saul Griffith, inventor, engineer and entrepreneur; founder of Otherlab; and recipient of the 2007 MacArthur "genius" grant
