How 1% Performance Improvements Led to Olympic Gold.

When Sir Dave Brailsford became head of British Cycling in 2002, the team had almost no record of success: British cycling had only won a single gold medal in its 76-year history.

How 1% Performance Improvements Led to Olympic Gold

That quickly changed under Sir Dave’s leadership. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, his squad won seven out of 10 gold medals available in track cycling, and they matched the achievement at the London Olympics four years later. Corporate Earthquakes.

One such endeavor has resulted in this particular machinery which is more than just a symbol of great engineering, it is frikkin’ cool and awesome. How much paving you reckon, a paver is able to accomplish in a day? The right answer is 100 sq. meter. Autos - The train that powers its station. When I press the brakes on my Prius, the hieroglyphics on the dash tell me that I’m charging the battery — enough, I’d guess, for a few minutes in EV mode as I circle the Whole Foods parking lot.

Autos - The train that powers its station

But the Tube train that rolls into London’s Holborn station has a little more heft than my hybrid. In fact, with some new technology, stopping a massive commuter train can generate enough electricity to power the whole of Holborn station for two days a week. Does this eight-legged transforming robot portend our future cars? When you picture the vehicle of the future, you probably imagine something solar-powered that hovers, but how would you feel driving around in a self-driving, giant transforming horseshoe crab?

Meet Halluc IIx, the second iteration of the Hallucigenia Project, which made its debut at Linz, Austria's Ars Electronica festival from September 3-7. The aim of the project, under development at the Future Robotics Technology Centre of Japan's Chiba Institute of Technology, is to review the relationship between society and the automobile. From there, the team hopes to advance the basic principles of the vehicle towards a changing future and the increasingly limited space in crowded cities and urban environments.

Intelligence collective

This app lets you visualize the WiFi signals pulsing around you. We all inherently understand that there are various types of electric signals bouncing around us at all times, but since we can’t see them, their existence is easy to forget.

This app lets you visualize the WiFi signals pulsing around you

But a new iPad app created by Richard Vijgen, called Architecture of Radio, visualizes the overlapping signals that envelop us — from cell towers, WiFi routers, and even satellites flying overhead. (Juuke Schoorl) The app, at the moment, is site-specific to an installation in Germany. It uses GPS to get the user’s location then finds nearby cell towers using OpenCellID, and has been custom-programmed to map the WiFi routers and Ethernet cables in the exhibition space.

L'innovation se crée dans les erreurs. Parmi les nombreux mythes qui s’agrègent autour de l’innovation, l’un des plus vivaces est celui qui fait croire que l’innovation est créée par des visionnaires. Essentiellement ce n’est pas le cas et l’innovation va se créer une fois que ceux qui pensent voir le futur sont mis en échec et que d’autres approches sont prises.

Carbon3D: Amazing new 3D printing technique up to 100 times faster using light and oxygen. A start-up has debuted a new 3D printing technique that is between 25 to 100 times faster than conventional 3D printing techniques today and inspired by an iconic scene from the movie Terminator 2.

In Terminator 2, the robotic villain T-100 rises fully formed out of a puddle of metallic goo, and this is the inspiration behind Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP), a new additive manufacturing technique by Silicon Valley-based firm Carbon3D. Currently, 3D printers use Stereolithography (SLA) technology to print out objects, where a laser or projector cures a photosensitive resin, slowly printing and building up each layer of the object until the item is completed. Why Group Brainstorming Is a Waste of Time.

To grow and innovate, organizations have to come up with creative ideas. At the employee level, creativity results from a combination of expertise, motivation, and thinking skills. At the team level, it results from the synergy between team members, which allows the group to produce something greater than the sum of its parts. Creating a culture of innovation.

Finnish phoenix: The start-ups rising from Nokia's ashes. 29 January 2015Last updated at 19:02 ET By Padraig Belton Business reporter Cold calling: Polar Bear Pitching in the northern Finnish city of Oulu, in an ice hole in the River Oulujoki For many, Finland and Nokia were synonymous. And when in 2012 and 2013, Nokia shed 24,500 employees and sold Nokia House (and its mobile phone division to Microsoft), they called it the "Elopcalypse" after then-chief executive Stephen Elop.

But the sinking of Nokia has led to an explosion of start-ups, as a skilled workforce jumps ship and begin businesses. The Three Breakthroughs That Have Finally Unleashed AI on the World.

Four Types of Innovation and the Strategic Choices Each One Represents. If you’re like me, you want your brainstorming sessions and new product development projects to be productive and you want the ideas you (and your team) come up with to be relevant to your business’ overall goals. That’s what this post will help you with – giving a guidance to your ideation/new product development efforts and some insight into how those ideas might fit into the overall plans of the business for the future.

When coming up with a new idea, often it can be helpful to think through categories of ideas first. For example, I don’t know about you but my creativity is actually enhanced when there are a few constraints put in place to help me know what is in scope or out of scope. Additionally it can also be helpful to know how some ideas can contribute to the overall strategy of the company or organization. You may come up with a fantastic idea but if it doesn’t jibe with the goals of the overall business, it will most likely get scrapped. Breakthrough.
