About (Profile/Biography):

Lonnie Johnson, a well-known American inventor, was born in Alabama.  Johnson went to Williamson High School in Mobile as a teenager; it was an all-black institution. George Washington Carver served as a major source of inspiration for him. Johnson attended a science fair in Alabama in 1968 as a representative of his high school; at the time, very few African Americans worked in the scientific field. He won first place by presenting his self-built robot, "Linex," at the competition. Compressed air provided the robot's power.


Johnson worked on numerous projects for NASA from 1979 to 1991, including the Air Force missions Lab.

Johnson established his own business, Johnson Research and Development Co., Inc., in 1991.

Excellatron Solid State, LLC and Johnson Electro-Mechanical Systems are two of Johnson's technology-development businesses as of 2017. (JEMS).

Johnson "belongs to a select group of African-American innovators whose work accounted for 6% of all U.S. patent applications," according to a report.

Johnson received roughly $73 million in royalties from Hasbro Inc. in November 2013.

Achievements and Awards:

Most of Johnson's more than 250 patents are for his Super Soaker.

Super Soaker was admitted to the National Toy Hall of Fame in 2015.
