Pretty impressive for polaroids. But a little to SFW. You should add the "NSFW" tag anyway

Dean Kamen for starters. Vancouver's Phil Nyutten, who is an active explorer, inventor, submersible engineer, and ocean researcher, as well as a collector of rare original studio master tapes. Most shuttle/ISS astronauts would qualify as Renaissance people.

There are so many Renaissance people around in fact, that we could use a more updated name for them.

I haven't heard of Phil Nuytten but Googling him tells me that he is simply a technology based businessmen. Dean Kamen I'll go for.
