Theme: Upcycled Thinking

"UPCYCLE (v): to reuse, repurpose, revitalize in such a way as to create a new product of a higher quality or value than the original."

Out with the old, in with the new? We disagree.

Innovation isn't just about novel creation and pursuit of unexplored frontiers. Some of the best innovations in tech, entertainment, and design create new value simply by "repurposing" discarded stuff.

The word upcycle is fairly new to our lexicon, but the concept is showing up in people and places that astound and inspire. We're not just talking about a wine box turned shoe rack. It's transforming anything--tangible or abstract--into something better.
