User-centered Innovation

Category discussions, ideas — studioludens @ 5:16 pm
I found this amazingly interesting video from Eric von Hippel where he talks about user-centered innovation. For us, stimulating this type of innovation and giving more people access to tools with which they can innovate is an important goal. What I noted in the examples von Hippel mentioned in his talk was the skill of users to modify a product or create a totally new one. What if users who do not have the tools now to build something will have them in the future. Could that mean that we can access a whole new field of knowledge that has never been used before? hippel.jpg From: Eric de Bruijn
