Autodesk Labs is home to lots of technology previews. You download an add-on for one of our design applications or a stand-alone program, you try it, and you let us know if you like it or not. An alternative to downloading is trying a web service and sharing how you feel. But there have also been times where we have collected feedback on concepts instead of technology previews. I remember having an Autodesk Labs page about human computer interaction back in the day when we were working with the Perceptive Pixel Multi-touch device. So it's in that spirit that I have created a new page on the Autodesk Labs site.
Bill O'Connor is my colleague. We both report to Jon Pittman who is VP of Corporate Strategy. Bill has been working on something he calls The Innovation Genome Project. Bill studied years of innovation and looked for the essence behind them. He boiled it down to 7 questions, that when asked and answered, can help create innovations. So check it out.
So like with any technology preview on Autodesk Labs, we are eager to hear what you think. Would The Innovation Genome Project be applicable to your engineering, civil, mechanical, or film-making projects? You can let us know in a few ways.
Innovation genetics are alive in the lab.
