Inventions “R” Us
It’s been said, “Inventions are the by-product of necessity.”
Why do we invent things? Because we need them. Or, we need something better. But, sometimes, you just can’t build a better mouse trap.
I remember once at Boeing, a fellow Designer said, “Doesn’t this part look sexy?” I said, “Yes, but does it work?” Functionality is more important than looks. A part must work first … you can always make it “sexy” later.
What product out there do you think needs to be improved upon?
