Here is a post from Mental Floss by Jake Rossen that may have a few surprises. In it, Mr Rossen lists 8 things invented by famous writers that we’re betting many of you didn’t know about. They range from the self-pasting scrapbook that made Mark Twain a cool $50,000, to a cerebral shunt that Roald Dahl helped invent which saved his 5 month old son, to the waterbed first imagined by Robert Heinlein, to the Pringles Chip machine invented by Gene Wolfe.
