Military innovation and the spoils of battle

War! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing – except for a range of very handy innovations that we take completely for granted.  Peter Lee shows us some of the civilian applications for the latest military technologies.

Peter Lee, consulting professor, commercialisation and entrepreneurship at the University of Auckland and chief technologist at the New Zealand Defence Force, explains how businesses old and new can use the tools at our disposal to adapt, innovate and find new opportunities.
