Professor Eric Fossum came face to face with himself as an “Inventor Superhero” at the National Inventors Hall of Fame Museum’s May 3 ceremony for 2018 inductees. Fossum was inducted in 2011 for inventing the CMOS active pixel image sensor that makes cell phone cameras possible. “Thanks, NIHF,” he says on LinkedIn. “Hope I can live up to my life-sized image!”
