R.I.P. Artur Fischer

According to this obituary in today's New York Times, the German inventor Artur Fischer, who died recently at the age of 96, was one of the most prolific inventors of all time.  The recipient of even more patents than Thomas Edison, Fischer made contributions to among other fields photography, home repair, and hobby kits/toys (Fischertechnik).  Here's an interview he gave to Der Spiegel in 2015 (in German).
