As something to think about. For some urgent products. Perhaps some climate related products. Is there a way to accelerate the innovation process and getting it production ready much faster than we currently do?
My idea is to test if a collaborative first generation and good enough product could be made. The idea is that several companies join forces to get that start product. From out of this first generation companies could then start to evolve it as their own product.
The important thing is that we get that first good enough generation of products.
Maybe something like this could be tested for some needed product.
A test if this idea works could be for a much more advanced peltier device. Not for electricity generation but for cooling. Or why not a new type of air conditioner.
