The world’s most expensive tinfoil hat

The Helpful Habits of the Tech Elite infographic lists a number of well-known and not-so-well-known techies and what they do to stay inspired. Most of them make some sort of sense — brainstorming with a whiteboard, listening to music, having a daily routine, measuring one’s life in order to better manage it, and so on.

The stand-out in this list is Yoshiro Nakamatsu, a.k.a. “Dr. NakaMats”, who has over 3000 patents in his name and whose claimed inventions run the gamut from the floppy disk to a self-defense wig that you can swing at an attacker (how has this not ended up as a prop in a Jackie Chan fight scene yet?). His way to stay inspired? Relaxing in his “calm room”, which is gold-plated to block out radio signals that interfere with creativity. Dude, that’s just a very large, expensive tinfoil hat.
