Even if you've seen the movie Rain Man, you may not be aware that the movie was inspired by a real person, whose name is Kim Peek (nickname: "Kim-puter"). This footage is an excerpt from the documentary, Beautiful Minds: A Voyage Into The Brain.

Besides the amazing feats he performs, it's quite interesting to learn how his notariety from the Rain Man movie has really helped him open up and improve his life.

Update (6/29/06): Google Video now has some great new footage in which Kim meets Daniel Tammet!
