Innovation, especially innovation that disrupts industries, is pretty exciting and fun to watch. Innovation is such a buzz word in business right now, too. It’s taking place all around us. Yeah!

I read an article in Popular Mechanics recently, and it got me thinking about all the inspiring and just plain awesome innovation that is changing our world. So, today I want to share that article, The 15 Patents that Changed the World, with you.

I found it interesting that many of the patent schematics have so little detail. The iPhone for instance, a device that has revolutionized the way we send and receive not just phone calls, but information as a whole, is a very basic drawing called simply “Electronic Device.”

Anyway, I think you will enjoy the read and the visuals. My hope is that your simple schematic––your big idea––will be on the next list.

Onward and upward––
