    • “Innovative” Technology•  Something truly original?•  Something existing, perfected?•  Something existing, adapted?•  Something existing, new application?“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Arthur  C.  Clarke  
    • The First Example•  Augmented Reality
    • The First Example•  Augmented Reality since 1990!•  Perfected through years of research•  Open source packages available Why now?•  Processing power ++•  Rise of the Almighty Apple•  Mindset of the public
    • More Examples•  1966: Ivan Sutherland invents the head- mounted display•  1915: E. Porter and W. Wadell do the first red-green anaglyph tests•  1989: Gameboy released
    • The Second Example•  Leap motion and Computer Vision“It’s like Kinect for your hands!”
    • The Second Example•  Computer Vision since (before) 1982•  Perfected through years of research•  Only now entering consumer market Why now?•  Processing power ++•  Nintendo Wii + Microsoft XBOX•  Mindset of the public
    • What I’m trying to say…•  Often huge gap between research and consumer application ||•  Huge opportunities for small businesses to “innovate“! –  Technology is perfected and available = Short time to market –  It’s like magic to the public = Easy way in
    • What I’m trying to say…•  Nice example: Angry Birds•  Rovio made 50+ games!•  Took advantage of new platform•  Now best selling company!•  Stolen idea, simple code, excellent execution!
    • What I’m trying to say…•  Games are leading the way –  Driving “consumer innovation” –  Extremely challenging and rewardingI don’t want to be a researcher myself…… but big thanks to all the researchers out there! In tech: everyone is on the front-lines
    • The Final Example
