Inventology

Garden Street: Lower Level

Why do some people hit on solutions that everyone else misses? In her just-released book, Inventology, New York Times contributor Pagan Kennedy takes the reader through the methods that visionaries use to imagine new technologies. Based on interviews with inventors, economists and psychologists – as well as evidence from studies– the book reveals the steps that produce discoveries.  Steve Hollinger — an inventor who holds many patents — will join Kennedy to demonstrate some of his prototypes and talk about his own creative process.
