PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#EIT—Mouser Electronics Inc. and celebrity engineer Grant Imahara join forces for the fifth consecutive year in this latest edition of the award-winning Empowering Innovation Together™ series: Engineering Big Ideas. To watch the first video, go to https://youtu.be/VRrqHSJFqlM.
This four-part series will explore the process of turning an idea into a product and examine the path to commercialization — from discovery to design and eventually development. Imahara and Mouser will explore the stops, the starts, the pitfalls, and the excitement of bringing an idea to life. They will take a closer look at how individuals and small groups can move from idea inception to an end product in the absence of huge corporate resources and technological infrastructure. The Engineering Big Ideas series is supported by Mouser’s valued suppliers Analog Devices, Intel®, Microchip Technology and Molex.
To kick off the series, Imahara visits the Arizona test track of Nikola Motor Company. There, he talks with CEO Trevor Milton about how Nikola Motor Company is bringing its vision for hybrid truck design to market, and revolutionizing the economic and environmental impact of commerce in the process.
