The runners up

2nd place - The Pressure Alert

Designed by Glasgow School of Art student, Jude Pullen, the Pressure Alert is an adaptation for a medical device called an Endotracheal Tube, inserted into the patient's airway allowing them to breathe during anaesthesia. The airway is sealed to prevent leaks by inflating a balloon called a Cuff. If the Cuff pressure is too high, it could bruise or split the trachea.

Currently, a safe pressure is judged by feeling a pilot balloon, which fills with air in proportion to the cuff. However, this is a delicate procedure, even for seasoned anaesthetists. The pressure alert is integrated into the Pilot balloon and gives a "pop-up" warning to instantly alert the user when the pressure becomes too high during an operation - reducing the risk of injury.

3rd place - Folding Plug

Finally, a solution to those bulky plug and adapters under the desk. The folding plug is just

1cm thick and a quarter of the size of standard plug. Its three pins can be folded so they are flat, drastically reducing its width.

An adapter allows you to plug three appliances into a single socket. Inventor Min Kyu Choi, who recently graduated in product design from the Royal College of Art in the UK, came up with the design when he became frustrated with carrying bulky UK plugs around with his slim laptop.

The plug could become the standard power source for laptops and other portable electronic devices.
