Throughout the day there were a variety of speakers presenting different design topics. One of the speakers, Dan Brown, caught their attention about his process of inventing the Bionic Wrench.  It was a story about the inventor’s struggle with Sears knocking off his original invention.  This is an issue that WhiteBoard can relate to.  We help our clients everyday be aware of this issue moving forward through their product development process.  Click here to hear his story.
