The source of Innovation

The Source of Innovation makes me think on the topic Technology / Design.
First of all: are we designers designing for people, for ourselves or for them? In this era more then never before ‘I believe that’ the world have incredible interactions in between computer / human also this interaction it self is evolving creating something really big not yet identified. Imagine the world five hundred years ago when we started to challenge the oceans, weather conditions and even fear also and our own limits.

“Necessity is often not the mother of invention. In many cases, it surely has been just the opposite. When humans possess a tool, they excel at finding new uses for it. The tool often exists before the problem to be solved.” Nye, D. E. (2006).

It is often said that the invention is not innovation and I believe it. Invention has to have socio-economic value to become innovation. Sometimes inventors  act as designers in this way they link their inventions to the society with the understanding the necessities of that culture. Taking into account the significance of the safe reliability and validity being both necessary and not the opposite.
Frequently on blogs and even on forums I see the constant need of oppose ideas when it comes to understanding design. When I work or collaboratively I am involved in frustrating projects i notice that innovation or creative ideas It is not always understood as such because there are so many old fashionable misunderstandings composed around design and even in design of thinking perception.

How easy is to invent a new concept that truly fits on people's lives and needs?

Focusing on how information, design and technology is socialized and subsequently digested can be a good point to start. Society has changed almost radically and growth perceptions obviously followed this evolution. I agree without any doubt that design – design thinking are the methods and processes that help to shape our future “designed” and also believe that designers are facilitators or drivers of innovation and will always play a growing role ‘socialize technology’ .
As matter of fact, I am sure that society is becoming increasingly impatient. Almost desperately because we all want to know what comes next.
More than ever, society is now more open to change and more open to radical advances fact is that we are more familiar with what is different. perceptions of “innovation” What was once considered “disturbing” if we look back a few years ago, triggers different perceptions today.

Innovation arises from a dialogue between design and technology so without design, that shiny new technology often sit around doing not much, likewise without technology, bright designs will eventually run into a ceiling where no more important innovation is possible. believe that  innovation is the result of an interaction in between the two disciplines, together with an business analysis.
