About the Blog

Retrovention is an eclectic site focusing on innovation, technology, design and inventions from the far, near and future past.

A historical perspective on innovation might sound odd as “innovation” is the process of bringing something new into the world, but just as every child has a mother and every chicken has an egg, the history and context of innovation can not be ignored.

The examination of history and what might seem to be obsolete can give insights into how to take what we have today and move forward.
