In today’s world when you can really build a prototype and get running all on your own, is it really hard to innovate ? Are really really good ideas very very hard to come by ?
I think not really, there is room for innovation, still and always will be. There will not be a time ever when a person can claim – “All the innovation is done”.
We will have innovations, where solutions from one dimension are brought into the other. Like the MakerBot industries got the 3D printing solutions from the enterprise and really pricy dimension to the dimension of generally available technology.
Or innovation like Navisens which will reinvent something like tracking a moving body by using all the normal sensors which are available in the common smartphone, location of device placement & some clever mathematics. They are moving solutions from the dimension of thought to the dimension of productization.
Or there will be innovation like that of Google glass, where the power of millions of minds will come to the aid of a single one.
Or something like Trailerpop, where somethings which were found in the dimension of competitive games and related rewards is being brought into the dimension of content discovery.
Innovation will always be around, it was before and it will be after. But what is lacking is the will to build, will to create and will to make ideas turn into products. It was this will which gave necessary power to the products to be drawn from one dimension to another.
And at the end – persevere and try try try success will be yours !
