TechALab's areas of research are inspired by real-world problems. But
what are the problems worth solving? Conventional wisdom holds that
customers notify their supplier/vendor of problems with their products
and services. The reality concerning problems is more
complex. Sometimes "problems" are not labeled and recognized as such
until long after a superior technology has already become widely
adopted. Was whiteout tape a solution that saved the time of retyping
a page from scratch? Or a messy problem made obsolete by the word
processor? Was there anything intrinsically wrong with the horse-drawn
carriage? Or the Sony cassette-based Walkman? Older innovations can
eventually become like the problems they originally fixed. At TechALabs, we
believe there is always room for improvement in the way things are
done. We attempt to fix what we think will become tomorrow's problems
by developing new technologies that will significantly improve the
quality, productivity, and safety of our lives.
Moreover, over 60% of Americans are currently overweight. Though myriad options exist for obese Americans wishing to lose weight, it is clear from the above chart that previous methods aren't working that well. Fortunately, TechALabs's novel doughs and food products will eventually be giving overweight Americans a line of healthy food products and options they simply didn't have before.
