Inventions “R” Us

July 21, 2014




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?
