Engineer/entrepreneur Saul Griffith never seems to lack for both ideas and, more importantly, the means to execute them. With Otherlab, he and co-founder Jonathan Bachrach have put together an impressive team ranging from comic book artists to toy designers to applied mathematicians, and that's just one of seven companies he's founded or co-founded.
In this Part 2 of our interview with Griffith, shot at Autodesk University 2011, we focus on the business behind invention and ask him about two inventor tropes: The one who quickly moves from invention to invention, and the one who sticks around to turn that invention into a business. His answer will be of interest to anyone who creates something and wants to see it go out into the world.
