Far too often innovative ideas must be changed because there are no materials available to bring them from concept to reality. With the accelerated pace of product development, especially in the Silicon Valley, materials have increasingly become a limiting factor to the creativity of Product Designers. This has resulted in markets saturated with products that are all essentially the same. Truly innovative products begin with innovative materials. This talk will focus on five innovative materials that Hitachi Chemical has developed to help bridge the gap between concept and reality.
