I want to set this up with the LEGO, but I thought to pop it up online now, for entertainment!

Innovation is inevitable if you frustrate people enough with the current reality of how things work and give them some perspective and experience playing with new ideas. It is that simple.

(You also need to give them some time to play as well as resources necessary to actually implement change; if you don’t, you just add to the levels of frustration among all of the participants.)
