Inventors: Meet Michael Worden, a
classic amateur inventor.
Michael Worden is a tireless, self-funded tinkerer interested in everything from deep-fat frying to heart defibrillation. Before going back to school at Arizona State in Tempe, where he is a senior in industrial design, Worden worked full-time at an Arizona door and supply company, but managed to develop literally hundreds of inventions in his spare time. These include an antilock bicycle brake and a centrifugal fryer that spins the fat out of food.
