Geschreven op 28-9-2017 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Agenda, Design Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

5 September 2018: The 2018 National winners are announced. One national winner and two runners have been selected in each of our 27 countries and regions.

This year over 1,200 students submitted their design solutions into the James Dyson Award. 

Local judging panels of tech experts, entrepreneurs, leading engineers and designers reviewed, discussed and debated all the entries to select their national winners, who will each receive £2,000.

International winners will receive £30,000 to launch their idea. On top of this, their university will be given £5,000.

Dyson engineers will now whittle down the remaining competitors to a shortlist of just 20, which will be announced on 21st September.

22 June 2018: James Dyson is on the hunt for bright minds with fresh ideas. If you have an invention that solves a problem, they want to hear about it.

The James Dyson Award is an international design award that celebrates, encourages and inspires the next generation of design engineers.

It’s open to current and recent design engineering students, and is run by the James Dyson Foundation, James Dyson’s charitable trust, as part of its mission to get young people excited about design engineering.

The entry process is simple, the prize is significant. First register your details. Then, tell about your invention. If your entry is accepted, they publish it on the website. Entries close 20 July 2018.

Don’t worry, nobody won’t claim your idea. Your work is your own. You could win £30,000 to kick-start your career, earn the esteem of your peers – and perhaps gain the confidence to launch your own business.

27 October 2017: A team of medical and bioengineering undergraduates from McCaster University, Canada have been chosen as the international James Dyson Award 2017 winners. Their design solution, the sKan, is a low cost and non-invasive melanoma detection device.

The sKan was chosen as the international winner by James Dyson who says “by using widely available and inexpensive components, the sKan allows for melanoma skin cancer detection to be readily accessible to the many. It’s a very clever device with the potential to save lives around the world. This is why I have selected it at this year’s international winner.”

Annually, skin cancer accounts for 1 in every 3 cancer diagnoses. The estimated 5-year survival rate for patients whose melanoma is detected early is approximately 98 percent. Current melanoma detection methods either rely on a visual inspection, or need a specialist’s opinion which is time consuming and costly. With high numbers of patients needing a rapid diagnosis to begin treatment, the health services are at maximum capacity. The sKan poses a viable solution.

Research shows that cancerous cells have a higher metabolic rate than normal tissue cells. When an area of interest on the skin is rapidly cooled, cancerous tissue will regain heat at a faster rate than non-cancerous tissue. The sKan uses accurate and inexpensive temperature sensors to pinpoint areas of tissue that gain heat quicker than the surrounding area of skin. The results of this are displayed as a heat map and temperature difference time plot on using a regular computer. A medical professional can use the quantitative findings produced by the sKan to indicate whether the patient needs to be referred for further investigation or not.

“We are truly humbled and excited to be given this remarkable opportunity,” says the sKan team. The team plans to use the $40,000 prize money to reiterate and refine their design to ensure it passes the US Food and Drug Administration’s standards.

The international James Dyson Award runners up are Atropos and Twistlight. Atropos is a 6-axis 3D printing robotic arm that uses continuous fiber composites material, to produce high-performance objects. The designers, Gabriele Natale and Michele Tonizzo, hope to tackle the amount of waste produced by current high performance 3D printing tools. Twistlight, designed by Tina Zimmer, uses LED lights to make veins appear highly contrasted within their surrounding dermal tissue. The light can be used to easily insert needles and catheters into a patient’s skin. Despite being the most common medical procedure, 33% of first vein puncture attempts fail. Multiple discarded attempts cause patient pain and waste medical materials.

28 September 2017: James Dyson is looking for students and recent graduates of design and engineering who have an idea that solves a problem. The James Dyson Award is an international design award that celebrates, encourages and inspires the next generation of design engineers. The Award is open to current and recent design engineering students. It’s run by the James Dyson Foundation, James Dyson’s charitable trust, as part of its mission to get young people excited about design engineering.

This year’s competition is closed. The top 20 designs for The James Dyson Award 2017 are announced. On October 26 2017 the international winner of The James Dyson Award 2017 will be announced.

Ecohelmet Wins James Dyson Award 2016. Bike share programs are used by millions of people around the world. But bike share users rarely wear helmets – a potentially fatal decision. According to the Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute, more than 800 cyclists were killed on US roads in 2015. Isis Shiffer, a recent graduate from the Pratt Institute of Design in New York City, set out to address this problem. Her solution: EcoHelmet, a folding, recyclable helmet for bike share users.

EcoHelmet uses a unique honeycomb configuration to protect the head from impact, and folds flat when not in use. A biodegradable coating makes it resistant to rain for up to three hours. The lightweight, durable design of EcoHelmet empowers cyclists to ride safely and confidently.

The cell structure of EcoHelmet distributes any impact evenly around the head as effectively as a traditional polystyrene helmet. Due to the radial nature of the cells, it will protect the user from a blow coming from any direction. The simplicity of EcoHelmet’s construction, coupled with its inexpensive materials, will keep the manufacturing costs low – meaning they can be sold for $5 at bike share stations.

As international winner of the James Dyson Award 2016, Isis will be awarded $45,000 to further develop her invention.
