I watched this video because I was intrigued by the title. I got a lot more than I expected. I'm glad guys like this still exist. He is an independent EE/software engineer who made his pile consulting, and now he just does what he wants. Sounds like a pretty good gig to me.

Check out the guy's website for interesting stuff.

Also, if you don't know what a Farnsworth Fusor is, Google search it. Someday, I'd like to build a Fusor too.
