  13. 13. Recommendations “We know the Wheel is already reinvented and it will take a lot of pain to resell it.” • • • We do not recommend that A&M invest any additional funds into this project. The market for this technology is highly saturated and it is unknown if the technology will be marketable without first scaling it up to an industrial scale. There is simply too much risk to invest on a technology which achieves the same results as other technologies in a highly saturated market, especially when these technologies, such as Gorilla Glass are already firmly entrenched in their markets.
