We’d like to teach the world to think
4 July 2012 Sydney, Australia
Two entrepreneurs from Sydney, Australia have developed a simple to use, yet extremely powerful, iPad app to help stimulate creative thought and increase our capacity to think creatively. The Thinking ThingamabobTM app coaxes the brain into thinking new things.
“The brain is just an endless knot of connections. And a creative thought is simply … a network that’s connecting itself in a new way” – Jonah Lehrer
The first decade of the 21st century has come and gone, providing a range of brilliant new inventions and technologies, like the iPad, yet seemingly intractable problems like climate change, terrorism, poverty and war still remain.
Conventional thinking alone will not be enough to solve these problems. In future years extraordinary, creative thinking will make the difference. Bright, fresh, creative thinkers will be the ones to solve these major problems and to shape the future. The question is will you be left behind?
Sir Ken Robinson, an internationally recognized leader in the development of education, creativity and innovation, argues that it probably won’t be school and believes that “We are educating people out of their creative capacities”. He explains it this way “We have sold ourselves into a fast food model of education, and it’s impoverishing our spirit and our energies as much as fast food is depleting our physical bodies.”
The Thinking ThingamabobTM app was developed to stimulate creative thought and to develop the creative leaders of tomorrow.
The Thinking ThingamabobTM app is deceptively simple to use, but its real power is that it is based on the latest research on theories of the mind, in particular brain neuroplasticity – that thoughts can change the structure and function of your brain. Using the Thinking ThingamabobTM app coaxes the brain into creating new thoughts that didn’t exist before. Thus unlocking the potential of your brain. Better still, using the app helps one to learn how to think differently.
“Using the Thinking ThingamabobTM is the creative thinking equivalent of taking a relaxing warm shower and letting your mind wander.” – Steve Brodie, CEO and founder.
At the moment the Thinking ThingamabobTM app offers a creative thinking module specifically designed for young children and a standard module designed to help anyone think more creatively. In the future the team plan to release more tailored modules focused on creative problem solving, creative story writing, inventing and many more.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein
