    If you look around your home or office, chances are you’ll see something that Andrew Viterbi ’56, SM '57 contributed to in a big way. Cell phones, wireless modems, and computers all bear the hallmark of his innovations, especially his breakthrough invention in the 1960s: the Viterbi algorithm, a deceptively simple mathematical formula that enables much of modern wireless communication. Viterbi’s contributions are all the more noteworthy for the distance he traveled both physically and emotionally to achieve them. His Jewish parents were forced to flee Italy in 1939 due to persecution…

    In some cases, a company has a product and knows immediately where it should go. GVD Corporation was not one of those cases. The MIT spinoff had developed a new approach to making polymer coatings, which had substantial industry interest. The problem was finding the specific market.

    Back in 2009, alumna Jodie Wu ’09 launched Global Cycle Solutions (GCS) in Tanzania to bring small-scale farmers an innovative product she designed in MIT’s D-Lab: a bike-mounted maize sheller. Easily attached to a bike and powered by pedaling, the low-cost, cast-iron sheller allowed farmers to process their corn 10 times faster — in one day, as opposed to weeks when done by hand. The sheller could also be shared among a number of farms. By 2011, GCS had sold shellers to more than 1,000 farmers. But its products still weren’t moving fast enough to fund product development,…

    22 Jan 2015 | 7:26 am
    A new start-up in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, is offering a rather surprising service that women are really getting excited about. Graphic Stallions is an alternative to the standard bachelorette party, divorce celebration, or even birthday parties. Instead of the standard male strippers, full bar, and insane ogling, this option is a little more genteel. This is a life drawing party with a bit of bubbly and nude male models.

    Coming five years after the original R.A.T., a computer mouse whose size can be adjusted to match one's hand, Mad Catz' Rat Pro X is the same thing, but even more modular. You can swap sensors and change the wheel tread, among a bunch of other things, and it still has the looks of something designed by aliens.

    Taxi drivers serve a number of essential purposes in this world. They deal with unfortunate catastrophes that occur while shuttling drunk people around (taking the necessity from the rest of us), they listen to the mundane details of our daily lives, and they save us from walking or driving in unpleasant weather. Even with all of that, they're still underappreciated, but that may be about to change.

    Conquering Innovation Fatigue: Helping Inventors, Entrepreneurs and Leaders Find Innovation Success

  • The Anti-Patent Revolution in the United States

    Jeffrey Lindsay
    4 Jan 2015 | 4:18 am
    Decapitalizing IP value with our current revolution Many intellectual property practitioners worldwide are scratching their heads over what is happening to IP in the United States. There’s a revolution underway that over the past few years seems to have steadily eroded the value of patents and any semblance of predictability and order in the law. Patents can still be valuable, if you are lucky and have the right connections. For ordinary people and companies, patents, once the great equalizers against big companies, are now an unreliable tool. The erosion of IP rights is becoming a…
  • Simple Steps Can Dramatically Increase Participation in Innovation

    8 Dec 2014 | 2:09 pm
    At the IP Business Congress Asia 2014 (IPBC Asia 2014), a collection of IP experts from around the world are here in Shanghai, China sharing best practices and advice to help fellow IP workers. Yesterday during a panel discussing ways to build a world-class in-house IP team, a comment from the audience provided a valuable example of how management can stimulate innovation in a company inexpensively. At Aruba Laboratories, a social event was held in which a number of people cam wearing a T-shirt that said “Thought Leader.” Before the event, such T-shirts had been ordered for every…
  • Unpatentable “Abstract” Claims in US Patent Law: How To Know It When You See It, Thanks to Abstract Art

    Jeffrey Lindsay
    18 Oct 2014 | 6:33 am
    The US Supreme Court recently ruled that “abstract” concepts are not eligible for patents. The 2014 case, Alice Corporation Pty. Ltd. v. CLS Bank Intl. or more simply Alice, is said by some to mean the death of thousands of patents if not entire industries. Critics such as Gene Quinn say it is unworkable, vague and indefinite, giving judges and enemies of patents a capricious tool to assault patents for software and other fields. One of the alleged problems with the Supreme Court’s ruling is that they expressly refused to define the word “abstract” because, of…
  • Monopolies vs. Health Care Innovation: What Happens When Incumbents Decide Who Gets to Compete?

    Jeffrey Lindsay
    6 Oct 2014 | 4:31 pm
    Monopolies can innovate, just like elephants can play tennis. The results usually just aren’t very elegant or successful. Competition, on the other hand, is famous for driving innovation. Even in state-owned monopolies, like NASA’s initial monopoly on space exploration in the US, it was competition between nations during the rush to outer space and then competition between suppliers of technology that inspired the hundreds of inventions and innovations that NASA can proudly boast. But without the incentive to do better and stay ahead of competitors, innovation is slow and clumsy.
  • David and Googleliath (or VSL vs. Google): A Small Company Fighting a Giant Reminds Us Why Software Patents Matter

    Jeffrey Lindsay
    19 Sep 2014 | 9:07 pm
    A small start-up company fighting one of the great giants of all time: it’s a classic story of David vs. Goliath, or in this case, David vs. Googleliath (a.k.a. VSL vs. Google). Googleliath’s Googleplex (source: Wikipedia). Many small companies have claimed that Google misappropriated trade secrets or other IP, but rarely has Google graciously (and accidentally) cooperated in providing smoking-gun evidence the way they apparently did for Vedanti Systems, Ltd. (VSL). In this case, they allegedly left sticky notes on VSL’s trade secret materials showing their questionable…

      Prototype designs are extremely important when brining a new idea to life. The Engineers at Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology seem to know this and have created a prototype design that will improve the quality of life of individuals. They have developed a prototype called iDETECT, which stands for Integrated Display Enhanced Testing for Cognitive Impairment. This prototype design is geared toward athletes and the military, and helps to assess mild brain injury. It can detect concussions on the spot and signifies if the individual should receive further medical…

    21 Jan 2015 | 12:23 pm
      We have all been there, fumbling with the touch screen keyboard product design on our Iphone while writing a long message or email. You don’t realize all the unintentional keys you’ve pressed in your hasty message typing and are in too much of a hurry to fix every mistake. It becomes frustrating sending numerous messages correcting yourself over and over again, which makes you look incompetent and unprofessional. Not only does the product design of a touch screen keyboard change the actual content of the message but it also changes the physical appearance of the Iphone. Excessive…

      Here at MAKO Invent we believe it is crucial that young people have the means to express their innovative ideas and turn them into an invention.  In today’s generation there is an abundance of creative thinkers but often times they lack the guidance or simply feel the development process is too complicated. After a successful competition last year with tremendous feedback, MAKO Invent has once again teamed up with Ryerson for the MAKO @Series 2015 Invention Awards.   The Invention Design Information Session Ryerson DFZ (Digital Fabrication Zone) hosted MAKO’s Vice President,…
