Australian Story - Windmills of Your Mind (Max Whisson)

Doctor and inventor Max Whisson has always taken a different view of life from most people. Where the majority would see a glass of water on a table, he would see 'a mathematical calculation for a vessel that holds liquid'. He believes he can solve the current water crisis with his Water Windmill invention, a unique technology to extract moisture from the atmosphere - partly inspired by a little beetle called Stenocara. The energetic septuagenarian’s mind is always in overdrive, pursuing a multitude of interests from music to politics and biology and coming up with weird and wonderful ideas to make the world a better place. At the height of the AIDs epidemic in the 80s, he invented a retractable hypodermic needle. And he’s gathering enthusiasm for his water windmills from all corners of the globe.
