Comments Off on 23-Year-Old Wins Dyson Award With Inflatable Baby Incubator Developing Countries Can Afford

James Roberts, a 23-year-old recent graduate of Loughborough University in the U.K., has just been announced as the international winner of  the 2014 James Dyson Award . His winning project was truly remarkable. It’s a portable, inflatable incubator for preterm babies that only costs around £250 ($400) to make, compared to the roughly £30,000 ($47,000) price of conventional hospital incubators. Roberts was inspired to develop the incubator after seeing the shocking infant mortality statistics  in refugee camps, where the price tag and prevailing conditions mean purchasing traditional incubators is out of the question.
