From the definition taken from wikipedia, the term innovation derives from the Latin word innovatus, which is the noun form of innovare “to renew or change,”. Although the term is broadly used, innovation generally refers to the creation of better or more effective products, processes, technologies, or ideas that are accepted by markets, governments, and society. Innovation differs from invention or renovation in that innovation generally signifies a substantial positive change compared to incremental changes. Creative is an adjective for things demonstrating creativity. Creativity refers to the phenomenon whereby a person creates something new that has some kind of value. What counts as “new” may be in reference to the individual creator, or to the society or domain within which the novelty occurs. What counts as “valuable” is similarly defined in a variety of ways.
wonderland, that’s how I mean a place which is creative yet innovative because of the country’s dreams had became true to create things that haven’t been exist in other places.
the wonderland in my thoughtful mind is Japan. why Japan? from my travelling hobby experience, it is the only place that has many variations of every thing. there, things that uncommon people imagine were created to be sell.
Taken from a trustable source, Japan is a leading nation in scientific research, particularly technology, machinery and biomedical research. Japan is a world leader in fundamental scientific research, Japan’s more prominent technological contributions are in the fields of electronics, automobiles, machinery, earthquake engineering, industrial robotics, optics, chemicals, semiconductors and metals. Japan leads the world in robotics production and use, possessing more than half of the world’s industrial robots.
When I was in Japan to spend the holiday with my family, I saw many unique things. First, when I was arrived at the hotel, I found that the toilet was super innovative & creative. The toilet can clean itself automatically after it is used, the temperature of the sitting place and the water can be managed by our own wants, and last it can be flushed automatically. Second, the phone that can be used there is only the one that connect using 3G connection. Third, I saw many robotic, supersonic, high tech electronic that are sold there, such as, Honda robot, uncommon technology things. Fourth, the way Japanese people dress up, like the harajuku. Fifth, the bento lunch box, the car park, tokyo flash (the futuristic watch made by japanese), etc.
Even though Japan innovates the latest creation, even though Japan has the latest technology stuffs, even though Japan leads the world in robotics, Japan still have this strong cultural that every Japanese own the culture. The culture in Japan is keep on maintained by the nation. Geisha (traditional Japanese female who skills in performing Japanese art), Samurai (term form for military nobility in pre-industrial Japan), and also Japan Architecture (temple, old castle). Therefore, it makes Japan is the most creative and innovative country that still have strong culture.
Even the west people love this country although they are feeling super futuristic by their country wealthiness. it can be seen by Disney in Japan, Disney open not only the Disney Land but also the Disney Sea in here. and by seeing, the love of Harajuku from Gwen Stefani (US billboard artist), and etc.
The reason I choose Japan is because I think the most creative and innovative country is the country that can make the thing that hasn’t exist yet without forgetting its own culture, old culture.
