This is an excellent invention by a designer. It is a bicycle without the front fork.
By removing the assumption that a front fork is necessary he forced himself to think of other ways to control the bicycle.[
Hi, We are trying to make an innovative design for a wheelchair and we have identified some physical contradictions. We are trying to find some references about the standard solutions of TRIZ . Anyone has an idea where to find them?
Thanks in advanced
Free Book on Creativity and Innovation
My name is Mark L. Fox and I am author and leading authority on teaching practical creative thinking techniques for business. At age 31, I was the youngest person with the title of Chief Engineer on the Space Shuttle Program.
My latest book “Da Vinci and the 40 Answers”, A Playbook for Creativity and Fresh Ideas has been getting great reviews.
I just wanted to let you know that I have decided to provide the entire book for free in electronic (PDF) format.
We had Shankar visiting us at Bangalore last month. One of the activities that we did while he was here was without getting into any technique-terminology of TRIZ is it possible for some one to use TRIZ?
We took one sample problem from the IT industry context about a web site experience. While we were doing this I was actively applying TRIZ techniques without deliberately naming it. As a note of thanks to Shankar I created a visual representation of what we did that day.
Stories feeds our pattern searching mind surely and so we all love stories as it feeds us with to find patterns.
One thing is sure about India (I am no longer dead sure about other things after knowing little bit of TRIZ as I remain most of the time in defining problem … so rarely reach judgment part !!!), It has lots of stories and great ones. Ramayana, Mahabharata… endless ones.
I had recently been to a star hotel in Chennai
(Name not revealed as it a public blog)
This was where I was staying when attending a workshop
The hotel room was good but what triggered me the most was the shower
It took me close to 10-15 mins to know how to operate it
And operating it left water spraying from all different unexpected corners
How does one identify function of each of the ten knobs?

It is customary these days to eat out on a pre-diwali day with colleagues and this Diwali was no exception. This year we visited Delhi Durbar, a famous restaurant in Colaba, downtown Mumbai. The first impression of the restaurant was that of a cramped space (what can you expect in downtown Mumbai) but after inflowing inside I felt it was also roomy (Roomy, cramped are all relative terms so your opinion may differ).

I was seeing through some of the slides that Shankar had so kindly shared and also the Videos that Prakasan had shared about Altshuller giving sessions on TRIZ
It set me thinking on one strange line of thought, that even TRIZ was A contradiction
The contradiction being that
We want Breakthrough innovations and making
it systematic and reachable and doable to everyone just makes the final
idea that is generated not “WOW” enough or thrilling enough
