Why “Star Trek Vision” is the Design Mechanism for Breakthroughs

It’s often that designers are called upon to show what can’t be done, what hasn’t been done and essentially how these two situations can be solved. The underlying issue is of course how to do that in a time frame that is possible and within market reality.

It isn’t too hard to see how epicenters push shockwaves to lower lying areas and then reflect back along the lowest point and shortest possible route and exactly similar to the way Stanford interacts with Silicon valley design leaders. In a recent article SRI’s Curt Carlson Wrote the Book on Innovation we see the absolute basics and fundamentals of how SRI has moved breakthroughs to the market faster than any other Silicon Valley long view firm. Regardless of model, it’s Curt’s simple and direct mechanisms that have allowed this to create consistent output outpacing the market.
