Wearable technology brings human connection to online shopping

Wearable technology brings human connection to online shopping | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

Founded in July 2014, the solution aims to address the discrepancy between the conversion rate online and offline; retailers have a much higher success rate when a shopper walks into their physical store compared with clicking through a retailer’s online store.
The founders discovered the biggest thing missing from the equation was the human connection and, developed a system using Epson’s Moverio smart glasses to inject an element of human interaction into the online transaction.

SK Hynix Licenses DBI Ultra Interconnect for Next-Gen 3DS and HBM DRAM

SK Hynix Licenses DBI Ultra Interconnect for Next-Gen 3DS and HBM DRAM | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

Invensas’ DBI Ultra is a proprietary die-to-wafer hybrid bonding interconnect technology that supports from 100,000 to 1,000,000 interconnects per mm2, using interconnect pitches as small as 1 µm. According to the company, the much greater number of interconnects can offer dramatically increased bandwidth vs. conventional copper pillar interconnect technology, which only goes as high as 625 interconnects per mm2. The small interconnects also offer a shorter z-height, making it possible to build a stacked chip with 16 layers in the same space as conventional 8-Hi chips, allowing for greater memory densities.

Timing of Innovation – Getting the Odds on Your Side

Timing of Innovation – Getting the Odds on Your Side | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

When it comes to innovation, there are countless ways things might go wrong. However, one of the most prevalent ones is incorrect timing.
If you manage to get the timing just right, your innovations will obviously benefit from huge tailwinds when entire industries are transitioning from the old to the new with you riding at the top of the wave. With the right timing, even mediocre execution can lead to extraordinary results.
On the other hand, get it wrong, and you’ll fail almost inevitably, no matter how great your idea and execution are.

When Licensing New Tech Is Better Than Building It In-House

When Licensing New Tech Is Better Than Building It In-House | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

Most companies fear competition from a rival’s product innovations and the risk of falling behind their industry’s technological frontier. Firms affected by such competitive pressure usually react by trying to strengthen their R&D capabilities and close the gap between their and their rival’s technologies as quickly as possible. But how exactly can firms catch up? Our research shows that rather than innovating from scratch in house or partnering with others in strategic alliances, the most effective solution may be to buy access to an already existing technology and incorporate it into your R&D.

Une tomate française hors-saison génère indirectement 7 fois plus de CO2 qu'une tomate importée d'Espagne. Dès l'instant où la première a eu besoin d'une serre chauffée contrairement à la seconde. L'empreinte carbone liée à la production peut alors largement dépasser celle du transport. On se remet les idées en place avec l'aide du patron d'une boutique en ligne affichant déjà un score carbone sur ses aliments.

Design Thinking: A Social Technology That Fosters Innovation | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it
Innovation does not happen in quiet cabins of lone strategists in higher corporate echelons. Innovation is possible when leaders step out to rediscover the consumer/user/customer; it is only when you step into their shoes/skin and identify with them so totally that you can recognize their ‘unexpressed’ needs, that your journey to innovation begins.

Validate Your Pivot with Innovation

Validate Your Pivot with Innovation | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

We are hearing the word “pivot” a lot these days. The idea is that business conditions have changed dramatically and, therefore, we need to change course. Companies are finding that they must shift business and adjust the game plan in order to survive or thrive. What we often fail to do is ask ourselves what we are changing the plan to. What, how, who and where are vital questions that need to be answered for a successful pivot. Simply assuming you will find your answers along the way creates complexity and can lead an organization to adopt what is easy, not what is strategic and value-creating.

Nanostimulators Activate Damaged Tissue to Heal Itself

Nanostimulators Activate Damaged Tissue to Heal Itself | Innovating to what's next... | Scoop.it

Peripheral artery diseases and injuries to tissue reduce the amount of oxygen that reaches the affected muscles. Such ischemia is difficult to treat, as new vessels are required to carry more oxygen into damaged tissues. Stem cells derived from fat tissues have been shown to excrete substances that spur angiogenesis and calm nearby inflammation. But when these stem cells are simply injected into living animals, the effect doesn’t last long and the stem cells stop producing so-called paracrine factors that mediate new vessel formation.

What made M-Pesa the focus for our research was that the innovation trajectory it followed was very different from the one that had been intended. The original programme was developed by a unit of UK telecommunications firm Vodafone for a corporate social responsibility (CSR) project. The product was going to be niche – a low-cost, small-scale app to help ordinary Kenyans take out microloans to set up new businesses. Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) like this are the lifeblood of Kenya’s economy, making up an astonishing 98% of all the businesses in the country.
