For this week’s activity, I would like you to look for examples of products that have been SCAMPERed. Lots of new ideas that are on the market are simply old ideas with a new twist. I want you to spend some time flipping through catalogs and finding 10 examples of products that illustrate the SCAMPER techniques. Ideally, you will find at least one example of each technique, but if you cannot, do not worry. Just describe ten in total. Examples of products can be found anywhere, but these sites can get you started if you need help:

If you have other examples from different companies by all means, share them. To complete this activity, you just need to give me a product description for each example.
Share your thoughts on completing this activity and the SCAMPER method in general. How could you apply this in your professional life? Your personal life?
