The Future Of Work

PSFK’s Future of Work report has highlighted the state-of-the-art lab that product design incubation company Quirky has created for their crowdsourced designers and engineers to develop, prototype, and test products. Quirky, which we have written about previously here and here,  receives over 100 product ideas per year; submitted from their community of inventors and influencers.
