I normally don't spend too much time on recreating things that have been well achieved and exploited for common good.
My efforts are mostly concentrated on the frontiers of technology.
One might safely call them Emerging Technologies Emerging Technologies...
I start from the fundamentals and first principles.
Analysing every theory, hypothesis, assumption, facts.
And then re-working from theory to applications to fundamental breakthroughs.

How does this work?

We will need a team to go back in time and play back that exist today till date and how it came to be so.
To go through the entire industry development and literature so far in the "problem" domain and all related domains.
They need to answer questions like - why everyone does what they do?
And whats possible and not possible with what exists today?
What are the things that are not possible with the curent state of human technology?
Help us in identifying and modelling the unsolvable problems.

I will take it from there.
