Safety Inventions

Safety Inventions

I was the innovation keynote speaker this week for the St. Louis Safety Conference on the topic of safety inventions and I realized this is one of the most important industries for inventors. A great safety invention could save lives and ultimately change the world....

The Role of Serendipity in Innovation

The Role of Serendipity in Innovation

I often speak about the role of serendipity in innovation as an innovation keynote speaker. Many products inventors come up with are "happy accidents", a word coined by English writer Horace Walpole in 1754. In the fairy tale "The Three Princes of Serendip", the king...

Accidental Innovation – The Microwave Oven

Accidental Innovation – The Microwave Oven

Many of the inventions we have now started out as accidents. One accidental innovation was the microwave oven. We take it for granted when we want a quick cooked meal, popcorn or a warmed over slice of pizza from the night before. It's easy to wonder how we ever lived...

Fads – Group Think Gone Wild
