Innovation is not about what you know but about what you don’t know
When Steve Jobs first came up with the innovation for the iPod, it wasn’t actually a machine he had in mind, but “a thousand songs in the pocket.” It was, at the time, an impossible idea, because hard drives of that capacity and size just didn’t exist. In fairly short time the technology caught up to the vision.
For someone who thinks innovation is either really new or only limited to things like social media, have a look at the list below:
Supersonic jumbo jet the XB-1 Supersonic Demonstrator is designed to travel at up to 2,333kph, which would make it the fastest civil aircraft ever made. Created by Denver, Colorado-based aeronautics startup Boom Technologies, the plane is intended to fly up to 45 passengers from London to New York in under three and a half hours.
3D-printed houses are nothing new – but this printing technique is. After winning the Freeform Home Design Challenge competition run by Tennessee-based startup Branch Technology, WATG’s Urban Architecture Studio in Chicago plans to create this 75-square-meter home in Chattanooga, Tennessee, using cellular fabrication techniques in the construction process.
Vertigo sufferers look away now: suspended ten storeys above the ground, this 25-meter swimming pool will sit between two apartment buildings in London as part of HAL Architects’ Nine Elms Embassy Gardens development. The pool will hold its water in thanks to a 20-centimeter-thick glass bottom, and swimmers will enjoy views of the nearby US embassy.
When this robot chef goes into production in 2017, it will offer to cook from 2,000 recipes, using 129 sensors and 20 motors. Developed by London-based Moley Robotics, it replicates the movement of human hands to stir, pour and check the temperature of a meal.
These amazing bulbs have been appearing in the market recently and they will revolutionize the industry! Smart light bulbs utilize LED technology to create both energy-efficient and controllable bulbs. Each bulb comes with a Bluetooth or WiFi module which allows it to sync to your phone, tablet or computer, giving you control over illumination, on/off functions and even changing the color of the light.
Created by artist Klemens Torggler, this door opens and closes with a light push and can be made of wood, glass, metal or plastic. Incredible!
