A 91-Year-Old Lives Her Dream as a Silicon Valley Tech Designer
Ever since she was a child, Barbara Beskind dreamed of being an inventor. (Even at age 10, she was building a hobby horse out of old tires!) But she was told that inventing was a path only for men. Now at age 91, Barbara's dream has been realized: in addition to inventing items such as walking poles and a couch handrails, she designs for the Silicon Valley firm IDEO.
