Product innovation -- the art of taking an existing product and significantly improving it -- has brought us some amazing advances. For example, the iPod replaced the Walkman, HDTV increased the picture quality of existing cable TV's, and the ubiquitous mouse completely revolutionized a user's computer experience.

One product that has not fundamentally changed since its inception (and was in dire need of innovation) has recently undergone more than just a facelift. In fact, it has been totally redesigned. Tesla Motors has developed a car that can outrun a Ferrari for a third of the cost, without the use of a combustion engine, and it looks simply spectacular.

Please join Martin Eberhard, Founder and CEO of Tesla motors, and moderator Robert Scoble, VP of Business Development at Podtech, in a discussion featuring the new Tesla Roadster and other products at the forefront of consumer innovation.
