The Reality of Augmented Reality Intellectual Property

Recent developments are proving that the virtual reality industry is succeeding in making immersive tech more affordable for consumers. But while it's more commonly thought of as belonging to the gaming and entertainment realms, it is used in many other areas, including the military, education, and medicine. No doubt, it's well on its way to complete world immersion.

Personal Tales of Innovation: Failure is Your Friend (and Teacher)

I don't really think of myself as an Inventor, even though I have more than 20 years in R&D and my name on over 40 patents issued in various jurisdictions around the world. To me, those patents are the culmination of a lot of people’s work. It happened to be my job to put the pieces together into some kind of solution, so I got the patent. One way or another, a central pillar of my career has been the development of innovation, either someone else’s or my own. First as a process engineer, then in a patent law firm drafting other people’s solutions, and next as a portfolio manager, finding and bundling other people’s solutions to solve still other people’s problems. Even in the course of my Masters Degree in Technology Commercialization, I studied an idea, turned it into a good or service, wrapped a venture around it, to ultimately pitched it to venture. In other words, ask for somebody else’s money to develop a third person’s ideas, in order to solve a generic fourth person’s problem. I’ve referred to it as “puzzle mentality”, where I like to think about the world through the lens of problems and problem solving.
