VPP008 – How to tame diamonds with Robert Bogdanowicz


Diamonds are with us since the very beginning and they will outlast any form of life, that’s for sure. They’re beautiful, expensive and unbelievably practical in technology. How many different uses could you name for diamonds? Five, ten? Or maybe a hundred? Robert Bogdanowicz knows the answer?

How Robert Bogdanowicz uses diamonds to change the future?

Let’s stop for a moment and think about innovation because that’s what this is all about. What comes up first in your mind when you hear the magical buzzword? Progress, achievements, technology, improvements or maybe anything else?

Let’s look at what Cambridge Dictionary has to say…


It doesn’t say anything spectacular does it?

In other words, I reckon in order to innovate you have to start somewhere. Start with something that’s already very well known or even almost forgotten and use it in a new way, so it brings extraordinary benefit to anyone. That’s true especially when using a very inexpensive thing or method to create something completely new of higher monetary value. Just google “smart taper” in the ITS industry and you’ll be blown away with the level of innovation!

In principle I don’t believe that it is possible to innovate out of the blue, therefore there is always an origin. And today the origin is a diamond!

In this episode my guest is prof. Robert Bogdanowicz, one of the top Polish scientists. We talk about some great use cases for diamonds and other things which go throughout researchers mind. Enjoy!

Please keep in mind that there is a lot of technical jargon in this episode, you’ve been warned! 🙂
