Unraveling colossal-problems, faced by the-humanity, in the 21st Century, requires both; Creativity and Innovation.
In-essence, Creativity is a-mere-starting-point (ideation) for any Innovation, while Engineering-Design is the only credible-link (being disciplined, meticulous, and consistent), which enables successful-transformation from Creativity (e.g., unique-ideas) into useful-Innovations (such-as: artifacts, systems, processes, and services).
This-book presents a-digest of selected-examples of Innovative Product designs, to-solve 3 conceptually-different-types of problems, such-as: (i) lack of affordable-housing (2 examples); (ii) cheating at exams via mobile-phones (3 examples); and (iii) particular-medical-condition (2 examples).
The-book also exposed a so-called ‘Paradox in-Engineering-Creativity”, where divergent and convergent-thinking do co-exist.
Moreover, a-fascinating-history of Thomas Edison’s light-bulb-invention is detailed, alongside-with current-developments in-the-field of lighting.
This-work targets Engineering-faculty and students, as well-as product design-professionals and enthusiasts.
