Business inspired from cross domain ideas: Skincare to space water detection

Throughout history, there are several cases of innovations inspired from cross-industry and cross-domain ideas.
Three such interesting stories,
Caudalie is a leading French skincare brand owned by a couple, Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas. The Mathilde family which owned vineyards got their idea for grapeseeds inspired skincare products when they had a accidental meet up with a  with professor Joseph Vercauteren, laboratory director of the Pharmacy University of Bordeaux, during the harvest at Château Smith Haut Lafitte.

Professor mentioned that they were throwing away a treasure. This made the family to work with the professor to take his idea to evolve to a world leading skincare product. From growing grapes to a leading cosmetic brand, Cuadalie is an interesting story of innovation.

Can you use the technology used for space research for finding water leaks underground? Yes, Utilis is yet another innovation story where the founder connected the dots from space research to water leakage detection.
Using synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data from satellites, Utilis proprietary algorithms to detect water.The user is then presented with a custom report to incorporate into their decision support system.
