  15. 15. Chindogu?   Coined by Kenji Kawakami, Editor of “Mail Order Life”   Means “Unusual Tool” Chindogus solve everyday problems   “Unuseless” = useful (i.e. not useless) but very crazy or inconvenient to be usable   If it is worth stealing, then it is not Chindogu!

  26. 26. Why build something “unuseless”? What’s the use of a newborn baby? – Benjamin Franklin, 21 Nov 1783
  27. 27. “I have coined the term “bisociation” in order to make a distinction between the routine skills of thinking on a single “plane”…and the creative act, which…always operates on more than one plane.” -  Arthur Koestler,
  28. 28. Bisociation Examples   Louise Braille: pinecone + reading => Braille system   George de Mestral: burr from burdock plant + zipper => Velcro   Jake Ritty: ship’s engine room + cash problem => (eventually) NCR!   Edwin Budding: clothes factory + outdoors => lawn mower   Christopher Sholes: saw piano and thought if it each key could write a letter => Typewriter
  29. 29. Let’s play Bisociation   Think of an object   Think of any activity you can do with it   Exchange the “object” with anyone in the room   Exchange the “activity” with another person in the room   Now think of something you can do with what you have!
  30. 30. Now let’s work together as a team   Form teams of 5-6 each   Think of a problem you want to solve, maybe even a fictional one – product, service, design…even think of a story if you want, or draw something if that works for your team   Each team needs only one paper   Taking turns, each person writes their idea in just a line. The next person builds on it.   Time: 5 min
  31. 31. Bebrief   Use the whiteboard   What did you like / dislike   How was working alone vs working as a team?   How was working on a given task vs. creating something?   What did you learn?
