Lateral Thinkg with Withered Technology

Gunpei wasn't equipped to work on the cutting edge, but there was so much information available that he could take it from different domains and merge it.

As a result, he developed this philosophy which he named Lateral Thinking with Withered Technology.

  • Withered Technology: technology that's already well understood, easily available and, often cheap.
  • Lateral Thinking: taking it from an area where everyone is used to it and merging it with something else.

This is what he used for Gameboy. Nintendo still uses this philosophy nowadays.
