The Dominic Muren keynotes bring light to revolutionary ideas geared towards creating less wasteful and more useful electronic devices. Muren believes in the need to look at organic life as a benchmark for device designs in order to create consumer products, with improved quality and less harmful impact on our natural environment. Throughout his keynotes, Dominic Muren strongly advocates that a new approach to the design of electronics should incorporate multiple ideas before going into the production phrase.
