It took decades of careful experimentation to create a practical electric light bulb. It took just one accidental observation to inspire the microwave oven.
A PhD research team developed the transistor in their corporate laboratory. College dropouts started Apple Computers in their garage.
Mother Neccessity inspired a number of simple and profitable innovations, such as Q-Tips and BandAids. Koosh Balls and Rubik's Cubes, while also simple and profitable, certainly did not fulfill any dire need.
The stories behind many well-known innovations are as varied as the products themselves. What ties them all together?
Someone had a great idea.
That idea was made to work.
There was a market for the result.
Imagination, Knowledge, and Value.Three legs, forming a stable base. Technologies and maketplaces may change, but these fundamentals will always remain.

Without Knowledge, great ideas are just science fiction.
