Stan Ovishinsky, self taught electrical genius dies at 89


Recommended Posts

Stan Ovishinsky who had over 200 patents has died. He invented the nickel hydride battery used in hybrid cars. But that is only a small indication of his talent. He was self-taught.

for a bio on this man and a list of his accomplishments.

It is good to know that this country is still capable of producing people like Ovishinsky.

He reminds me of a prolific self educated inventor I met in Dayton OH about 1990 who had about 300 patents - some related to LCD screens.

He had an 8th grade education but worked for the Mead Corp.

My uncle lives in Kettering, a suburb of Dayton. In 1995 we drove by a mansion on a huge lot near his home. See that? He said. The guy who lives there invented the valve used in pressurized spray cans--all of them.
