Tomorrow’s solutions are still in development. So to understand this important process, let's look at the story behind something we use every day: The refrigerator! You’ll see industries battling each other, one clinging to the past and the other pushing for the future. You’ll learn how consumers’ fears can lead them to make bad decisions. And, you’ll hear from a VP of research at Samsung, who explains how sometimes, innovation requires thinking two different ways at the same time.
