New thought in any global arena doesn’t take long to propagate these days.
Given an idea, there are now many small, highly skilled commando-like development teams that can employ the latest materials and technologies and rapid manufacturing and prototyping techniques to build and test a series of prototypes within a short time and develop a complete product in months … and this is such a tale, involving two such teams.
Once upon a time, the adoption spread of new technology across the world was agonizingly slow. For ideas to travel to foreign lands often took decades, perhaps even centuries.
Some of history’s killer apps, such as the wheel, the chariot, the longbow, crossbow … ad infinitum, required hundreds of years to come into common usage seemingly short distances away.
By contrast, now we’re all connected via the internet, and the tyranny of distance has been comprehensively defeated, it takes just the broad concept to enable a horde of people out there with education and new skills to take that idea and commercialize it.
