15 common ideas with MURAN 

Hello. This is Daniel from the PR Group of DENSO MURAN.  

We have less than 3 week left until the deadline for the Idea Contest, which has a maximum prize of 1 million yen. As a committee member, I would like to collect as many ideas as possible to make the contest more exciting! I’ve been thinking about it, 

We will be posting articles to help you come up with ideas. 

Since we are asking you to come up with ideas, we would like to increase the rate at which your ideas will pass the judging process. 

So this time, we would like to introduce 15 “common ideas ” that have been submitted, commercialized, or patented many times in the history of the MURAN contest. 

Please note that these stories must be innovative in their means of solving problems in order to pass the screening process.
