Move Innovation into Inventions

eweber   January 26, 2009   18 Comments

The moment a problem is spotted – an invention awaits the creative mind. According to Robert Lee Holtz, Wall Street Journal Science Columnist, Researchers found that sudden insights or Eureka moments show unique neural activity in EEG sensors. Interesting, ahha moments of sudden insights are the culmination of an intense and complex series of brain states that require more neural resources that methodological reasoning. It seems the brain is most actively engaged when our mind is wandering and we’ve actually lost track of our thoughts.

In addition, with each innovative solution, you toss into the ring, your brain rewires its plasticity for more potent problem-solving capability.  You could say that invention holds you at the helm of success, just as its opposite force of venting or complaining also seals your fate for more of the same misery. Discovery and development – core tools of invention – will rarely stoke ingenuity where negativity or cynicism reigns. Have you seen that too?

Look at your day with the brain in mind, and you’ll also see possibilities pop up alongside every problem you face. Never before have new understandings about the extravagance of human brainpower become more central to growth and wonder through invention. Wherever a compelling idea exists that will solve a problem you face, an invention awaits your touch today. How so?

Curiosity fuels an inventor’s ignition, and great questions spark brainpower for creative answers.

Check out Jeff Hawkins’ inventions in a video posted at Nibipedia, to see how brain research is changing the way computers will operate in future. You’ll likely know Jeff from creative solutions such as the Palm Pilot, and the Treo, yet he’s since moved into applied neuroscience full-time. Watch for even more dynamic inventions from Jeff in the near future, as he combines brains and better computing devices.  invention.jpg

In similar ways to Hawkins, Michael Neuvirth‘s company Chutzpatent, invents creations that change the world. In his blog, Doctor of Invention, Michael makes innovation appear as easy as the inspiration that drives his own thinking. What solutions could that fact yield from your brainpower by the end of the day?

Not surprisingly, when you believe in solutions enough to create an invention,  you’re also ready to demonstrate those beliefs with robust results.

Checkout life-changing facts about your brain that help to power-up invention on a daily basis. The opposite is also true. Rarely does invention spring from negative environments or by living mental mythsMultiple intelligences that fuel invention, for instance, get drained in climates where cynicism, venting, stress or anxiety work against problem solving.

What problem will you encounter at work today that calls for an invented improvement and compels your brainpower into action?
