Technology fusion involves a transformation of core technologies. An example is the fusion of mechanical and electronic engineering to create mechatronics.

Fusion[edit]

The fusion of technologies goes beyond mere combination. Fusion is more than complementarism, because it creates a new market and new growth opportunities for each participant in the innovation.

It blends incremental improvements from several (often previously separate) fields to create a product.[1]
