Garrett Brown invented the Oscar-winning  Steadicam® stabilizer and used it on nearly 100 movies beginning with ‘Rocky’.  His Skycam®, Mobycam and Divecam still pursue athletes worldwide and in ’09 chased their inventor into the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame.

A legend in Hollywood for 40 years, Garrett still lives and works in Philadelphia, venturing out around the globe to teach camera workshops and inventing seminars.

Brown is a 2013 inductee into the National Inventors Hall of Fame, but he is neither a scientist nor an engineer—just an extraordinarily motivated, at-times comically challenged, incredibly persistent human being.  

Garrett Brown and Chris Fawcett are the inventors of a potentially important new mobility device, which Brown teased at EG10. Between them, Brown and Fawcett have more than 60 patents and they combined forces in 2013 to advance geriatric and re-hab mobility. For those battling age, injury and disease, their ‘Elevating Walker Chair’ elegantly bridges sitting, standing and walking. Now here, for EG12, is a first look at the joyful and startling ‘Zeen’—and a chance to take one for a spin during breaks!
