    Amazing talk, I especially love the point about having a child like mind in order to create and solve problems better.
    I've always wondered why i've got a non-conforming mind. I'm often bouncing outside old routines all others would be in, finding ways more efficient, even when I was in the Army. The ideas helped my peers but not always my hierarchy, as most were old school and stubborn. But turns out no one likes change until they're child minded also.

    The sticker is an interesting one, so many ways to identify an apple. But you can't go too nuts, trying to modify it, cause customers still want to buy a normal APPLE. To marking the skin, to sticking the labels on the stalk. I could even think of putting the barcode on the batch of apples, where the apple came from, and then have a machine flash a batch number on the skin where it only pigments it, and then the register can scan that number.
    Totally edible, but less simple

    The fruit sticker analogy is great to describe the subconscious and our habits.

    I'm a designer, much like Mary there. Can't sell squat. Even had the uspto deny a patent because I didn't define myself as small entity instead of my actual status which is micro entity. I sent them all of the documentation. I've discovered that one of the ways to actually change perspective in design is to literally be broke. Kind of stuck in an area, solving basic survival problems, and the resulting mental energy and flat out boredom, you start to notice what people aren't doing, in a big way. You can't afford a product, so you start curiously looking for better ones, whats out there, what would be better with less income, and you start improving it, automatically. I pay 10 bucks a month for internet, its well worth it, and it has slowly been turning me into a design genius.

    How will a set of screws inside a packaging lead to increased sale? I get his point of practical inventions but I doubt people look inside the package to see what kind of screws there is before they buy the product.
    Except if they first buy the product, find out it lacks practical screws in case they want to buy more of the same product. Then they risk to lose the upselling on that product on this specific customer.
    But then they have to outweigh the cost of designing and produce these new screws against the lost revenue on only the specific customers that are potential upselling for more of the same product. And therefor it might be a risk that its not worth it.

    Excellent Video clip! Sorry for the intrusion, I am interested in your opinion. Have you researched – Fiymaria Graphic Gainer (do a search on google)? It is a good one off product for getting the best graphic design for your project without the hard work. Ive heard some super things about it and my best friend Jordan after many years got great success with it.

    Give a computer input of what details exist, and it can figure out what can be built or found out from it.

    As an aim-to-be product designer, this is the best speech I've ever listened to. I'm now more confident than ever that product design is my path, to make the world better. Thank you so much Mr. Tony Fadell
