Talking with New York City inventors

Great inventors of the past have influenced the world we live in today. Thomas Edison gave us the light bulb, phonograph, and motion picture camera. Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone. And let’s not forget Brooklyn born inventor George Lerner for his famous American Toy, Mr. Potatohead.

Today, the Big Apple is home to the creators of many interesting inventions, from a solar powered, MP3 charging bikini to a hoodie that takes photos when your heart rate increases. On this week's Cityscape, it's all about inventors from New York City.
