Most things we create will not matter. Creating Things That Matter is book is about creating things that do, from a master innovator who brings science and art together in his cutting-edge labs. Art and science are famous opposites and contemporary innovation mostly keeps them far apart. This book reveals that the secret to creating very new things of lasting benefit, including innovations we will need to sustain human life on the planet, lies in perceiving art and science as one.
