I want to like it but i'm confused as to what it exactly does. Feels over designed, like ok is this 1, a mood board, or 2, a google gather all my stuff in a place, or 3, a sciverer mac like thing or what. Like yes i see multiple users and collab and share ideas but that feels like a mood board thing.

@floozyspeak I agree. Is there a live board we could engage with? Love the idea of gathering data on user feedback.

Shape looks to be IDEO's tool for helping people or organizations share and work on new ideas. This seems like it could be a pretty solid answer to support innovation pipelines within organizations, as well as form communities around emerging ideas. I played around with it a bit (doing the onboarding) and while the tutorials are helpful, it seems like it could be a bit more intuitive....but all in all, it's pretty cool product! What do you think?
Looks like they just took Milanote and rebranded it to their own thing.

The value of this depends, almost entirely, on how large and relevant a community it can aggregate. Fingers crossed it's a success - because it has potential for some greatness. @ideo

Product discovery is essential for entrepreneurs that want to make sure they hit the right notes with a feasible, viable and desirable MVP. I hope this product delivers on that, as I get to spend the next 5 minutes evaluating it for what it might become. :)

I must say I'm pretty excited about IDEO building their own digital products! :)
