Dr. Yoshiro Nakamatsu

Dr. Yoshiro Nakamatsu (or Dr. Nakamats as he is widely known), world's most prolific inventor, has over 3000 patents to his name (source: NYT article in 1995). Dr Nakamats said that he dives underwater to create higher level of invention in his mind. He reasons that lack of oxygen makes better creation from the brain. Just a caution, oxygen is much needed for the human body to work well and lack of oxygen is dangerous for the human body. 
He also said that no music is the most ideal condition for invention.

Well, I think the ideal situation for creativity and innovation differs for each person. The most important thing is to find your own ideal spot/condition that will help you spark creativity and innovation.
