_Search is on for new metaphor for innovation_
**Cupertino** – It seems the bell has tolled for the concept of ‘the wheel’ as a benchmark for human ingenuity. Instead, the search is on for a new metaphor to describe the crazy ideas inventors can come up with. Experts in the field of inventionism have already decided that the circular object no longer can maintain a stable position as forward thinking rolemodel. “I mean, it wasn't even invented for vehicles. The ancient Mesopotamians used them for creating pottery.” says history buff Robert Ignacious Peter van Winkle.
And so, a challenge has been issued to the scientific world: come up with something inventive, darn it. A prompt has been created. Van Winkle: ”We feel it's probably good to be forward thinking and futureproof this idea. So that when something better comes along, people should be able to say ‘This is the best thing since X.’ X being the amazing invention we're looking for, of course.”
**库比蒂诺** – “车轮”——曾经的人类智慧共识——貌似现在已敲响了钟声。人们正在寻找一个新的比喻来描述发明家们能够想出的疯狂想法。发明主义的专家们断定：圆形物体已经不能再保持一个稳定的位置，作为前瞻性的榜样。“也就是说，车轮当初并不是为车辆而制造的。而是古代美索不达米亚人为了制作陶器而发明的”，历史爱好者罗伯特·伊格尼斯·彼得·范温克说道。
于是，科学界迎来了新挑战：注入点新鲜血液吧！一个提示已经产生了。范温克说：”我们觉得也许应该有前瞻性的思考，并对这个想法作进一步验证。这样，当有更好的东西出现时，人们应该能够说‘这是自 XXX 以来最好的东西’。而 XXX 就是我们要找的那个惊人的发明。“
