Inventables: Inspiration for new product developers

From the Innovation Weblog:

"I was recently alerted to a neat new product development resource called DesignAid from Inventables. The company describes DesignAid as a hands-on 'magazine' -- actually more like a kit of unique materials and technologies -- that helps to spark creative new product ideas. Inventables also provides subscribers with access to an online database that contains more information on each new material and technology.
I'm not trained in new product development, but it sounds like this may be a worthwhile resource!"
