As a new series on the Stratos blog we will be revisiting our customer's favorite blogs from the past. The series will feature one blog a month and this month we start out with lessons learned on a Tesla road trip that was originally posted in January of 2015.
This fall, my husband purchased his dream car, a Tesla Model S. He decided that we needed to take it on a road trip to visit my family for the holidays – which meant driving the Tesla from Seattle to Orange County – a one-way trip of 1,200 miles in a car that only has an optimistic range of 260 miles. Along the way, I discovered some parallels between the road trip and good product development practices.
Great inventions have revolutionized our lives. Whether life-saving devices or products that have simply made our lives easier, behind every invention is an inventor with a great idea and the courage to make their dream a reality.
In recognition of National Inventor’s Day this past weekend, we took a moment to honor the creativity and tenacity of inventors by talking with Stratos Vice President of Engineering, John Havard, about inventing and his favorite inventor.
