A colleague of mine said the other day – not jokingly – that he comes up with 5 new ideas every day while in the shower – so i thought: I can do that: Here’s today 5 new ideas:
What do you think? Good ideas? 😉
A whole conference devoted to failure, FailCon, may be a first, but it’s looking like a success, with the likes of PayPal co-founder Max Levchin talking about how he failed repeatedly before making billions making the payment platform for the web.
Looking for a market to innovate in? Well here you are….
“We’re still at a pretty rudimentary stage,” Garrett said, noting educators rarely employ video, unique links, or other technological innovations.
“Will it be games? Will it be simulations? Will it be social networking? Will it be something we haven’t yet come across?” he said.
…this year, the limelight will be on the era that is to come — and a movement called Transhumanism, which supports the use of technology to improve the human condition.
The next phase of human evolution, IMHO, is us using technology we have developed in order to augment ourselves. Why wait for real evolution when we can evolve ourselves right now. We are already cyborgs in some sense anyways…
By 2015 more than 12 billion devices will be capable of connecting to 500 billion hours of TV and video content, says chip giant Intel.
A new exhibition at London’s Royal College of Surgeons called “Sci-Fi Surgery: Medical Robots” has displays ranging from the “da Vinci” system to prototype microbots designed to be swallowed and self-assembled in the human body.
Disruptive innovation is often fraught with unknowns and assumptions. But that doesn’t mean it has to be “risky business.” By utilizing a different type of approach–an approach that systematically attacks the most critical unknowns with tailored, low-cost experiments–innovators can systematically “de-risk” their strategies and thereby increase their chances of success while lowering the associated investment cost.
You too can forecast the future!
