Ever removed a cork from a wine bottle? If so, you also know how to remove a baby from its mother’s birth canal!

Just kidding. That is certainly not true.

What is true, however, is that a very important medical device has been invented because one man learned how to remove the wine cork that was stuck in his wine bottle. He did so by using something called analog transfer.

In this episode, I’m going to share the story of that medical invention with you. Then I’m going to explain how analog transfer was used in the story and how you can also use this method in your innovation efforts.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  1. How a car mechanic took methods for removing a stuck wine work and applied it to babies stuck in the birth canal.
  2. The device that was formed from his ideas.
  3. What analog transfer is.
  4. How to apply analog transfer in your life.
