Museum of Failure Opens In Sweden

Slashdot reader swellconvivialguy writes: A new museum in Helsingborg displays more than 70 failed products and objects, including the Apple Newton, Google Glass, Sony Betamax, Harley-Davidson perfume, and the Donald Trump board game. According to curator Samuel West, “none of the companies that I contacted wanted to cooperate. I approached quite a few innovation directors and asked them for examples of failure that they’ve learned from. I thought it would be easy to get them to collaborate but none of them — zero — choose to cooperate.”
The curator urges people to accept failure — “as an essential aspect of progress and innovation.”
