C|Net has a story on ‘Ginger,’ a product touted as revolutionary but shrouded in mystery.

Harvard Business School Press has paid $250,000 for a book about a mysterious invention with the code name “Ginger.” Neither the agent nor the publisher knows what “Ginger” is, but they apparently believe it is well worth finding out.

The Harvard press declined to say when the book is coming out, but the invention’s identity is expected to be revealed in 2002. The book will be written by Steve Kemper, a journalist whose articles have appeared in National Geographic, Smithsonian and elsewhere.

Reports of the deal first appeared Tuesday at Inside.com.
According to the inventor of “Ginger,” Dean Kamen, his device will be an alternative to products that “are dirty, expensive, sometimes dangerous and often frustrating, especially for people in the cities.”

The submitted proposal for the book states that Doerr expects “Ginger” to be as significant as the development of the World Wide Web. Another investor, Credit Suisse First Boston, says it thinks “Ginger” will be the most lucrative start-up in history and will make Kamen richer than Bill Gates. Bezos and Jobs were reportedly dazzled by a demonstration.

Update: Icrontic has more on Dean Kamen.
