The ‘Museum of Failure’ has finally opened its doors in one of the largest malls in North America, Mall of America in Minneapolis. Bringing together over 159 products and services that were a total failure, this exhibition will open your eyes on the importance of failure in life and how it can pave the way for better things.
Innovation comes from taking risks, failing over and over again, learning from your failures, rinse and repeat. And this unique museum is here to celebrate that process and focus on epic fails of the world, giving you a deep dive on why these products and services failed and how they paved the way for other great innovations.
The Google Glass (2013-2014) is one of the items that will be highlighted, and it is a great example on how even innovative products that are backed by one of the largest tech companies in the world can still flop. Other failed products that will be showcased at this exhibition are from huge companies like Amazon, Facebook, Coca-Cola, etc..
With a unique insight into the risky business of innovation, the ‘Museum of Failure’ aims to inspire and stimulate productive discussion about learning through our blunders. Everyone falls, but what’s most important is knowing how to get back up!
