We're going to be launching an online "open innovation" pavilion in partnership with Innocentive.com, where anyone — companies, nonprofits, government agencies, universities — can put up science and engineering challenges for the general public (that's you) to solve. Whether it's some company looking for a better waterproof material, or a research lab asking for a better design for a satellite, it will be your opportunity to not just read about the future, but to be part of it. And the best part: winning entries will win cold, hard cash.
We recently blogged on Innocentive about how open innovation fundamentally changes the whole history of how people come up with great ideas. Read it, and stay tuned for the launch date.
I am totally on-board for this. I can only imagine the thought process of all of PopSci's readers working on something together to add to the scientific community.
What Is Science but A Continual Lesson of The Challenge To Studying The Entire Known Existence of Everything.
Here's the first posting: Flying Car.
Cool...as long as the contributors are recognized and awarded properly I am all for this.
What day will the pavilion be launched?
