He currently holds over 3000 patents and is Japan's most prolific inventors. One of this most influential inventions was the floppy disk, which he invented when he was 23 years old as a student.

BBC's series on Adam and Joe go Tokyo, interviews Dr. Nakamas. It's an amusing and yet informative opportunity to see Dr. Nakamas, one of the most prolific inventors of all time, show off a few of his inventions, like the Love Spray.

The video is about 6 minutes long. Enjoy.

I want to know if they could

I want to know if they could make that set even darker. Is it me or does anyone else think they could've used a couple more lights?

This guy is a fraud...he goes around telling a bunch of lies just to get famous.

I got so fucking disappointed.
I read an interview with him and I thought
 he was the real deal...the guy that invented the floppy disk, digital watch, compact disc.... Even saved his tips to get more creative. That was until I knew that NO ONE in the world recognizes him as the inventor of these things, only himself.....Son of a bitch!!

He only invent stupid shit....but is a patent addict,  meaning he spends his days in the patent office patenting everything silly, like phrases or what have you, and of course, patenting things ALREADY invented that weren't patented specifically in Japan. 

 Joe and Adam knew that he's just a poor fellow trying to pose as one of the greatest, and it's obvious how they make fun of him in the show.
