_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. Invention experts have already decided that the circular object no longer can maintain a stable position as a forward-thinking role model. “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 future-proof 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.”
