James Roberts, a design and technology graduate, has scooped the coveted 2014 James Dyson Award for his incubator 'MOM'. The winning design provides a collapsible incubator unit for use in troubled areas of our world. Incubators with similar capabilities cost some £30,000 - James's unit can be manufactured and shipped for £250!
James Dyson (who was the ultimate judge) said: "James' invention shows the impact design engineering can have on people's lives. The western world takes incubators for granted -- we don't think about how their inefficient design makes them unusable in developing countries and disaster zones. By bravely challenging convention, James has created something that could save thousands of lives."
