NASA Applies Crowdsourcing Site for Product Discovery

1 min read

online licensingNASA is using the crowdsourcing platform Marblar to share the agency’s scientific discoveries with the public and seek new ideas for applying the technologies, FCW reported Wednesday.

Reid Davenport writes NASA has published 35 patents on the Marblar online community to date with the goal of spurring innovation through a collaborative approach.

FCW reports that NASA engineer Fred Schramm discovered an X-ray fluorescence-based technique to inspect and identify objects.

Marblar users submitted ideas for applying that method in order to detect counterfeit medications, according to the report.

Through the crowdsourcing site, people also suggested using NASA’s ultra-low temperature fluid storage technology to preserve biomedical tissues, Davenport writes.
