Thomas Alva Edison created the
first research and development lab at his home in Menlo Park NJ in
March of 1876. The story goes that when a new employee once asked
about lab rules, Edison said, "There ain't no rules around here!
We're tryin' to accomplish somep'in."
At that location and with that
attitude, they pushed the limits of materials and knowledge farther than ever
before. Many of the designs and innovations changed the way people lived and
worked forever as well as setting the highest standards for innovators for
generations to come.
With this heritage in mind, the people of
Menlo Park Research & Development, set about re-creating this environment in
the modern age. Spanning the country via the Internet, engineers, designers and
programmers come together to find solutions to todays challenges.
