Following his retirement as a patent examiner, Arthur Paul Pedrick began inventing. He was granted over 160 patents in the UK between 1961 and his death in 1976. His inventions were incredibly varied and imaginative. His ideas spanned nuclear physics, golfing aids, alternative transport (sea/land/air), the irrigation of desert regions by piping snowballs from Antarctica in an effort to solve world famine, as well as his most memorable patent, a cat flap combined with a global nuclear deterrent (developed with the assistance of his pet cat "Ginger"). Based on a true story.
