Boulder resident inducted into National Inventors Hall of Fame

“I think there’s a lot of educating that could go on to help people understand how they could contribute inventively and I think most of us have the tools.”

University of Colorado, Boulder alumnus (Ph.D), Gary D. Sharp was recently inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame. Sharp, alongside Inductee Kristina Johnson, invented polarization-control technology used in products such as projections televisions, front-projection displays and more 3D digital cinema installations today.
