There aren't many companies that can count Intel, Lockheed Martin, the U.S. Air Force Research Lab, the Library of Congress, and Herman Miller as clients. But for former Oscar-winning Disney Imagineer Bran Ferren, being an inventor means creating just about anything that makes the world a better place. Uniting technology, science, art, and the human experience--"what we desire rather than what we need"--is essential, Ferren says, whether he's working on transportation, energy, entertainment, or the military.
