James Dyson Awards Releases Very Lengthy Shortlist


Looking for something to do on a slow summer-time Wednesday? Well here’s a good way to spend the next six or seven hours. Everyone’s favorite school-less vacuuming guru, James Dyson, has unveiled the second round of shortlisting for this year’s James Dyson Awards and it is anything but “short.” There are 184 design projects to sift through from all over the world, which is exactly what Dyson’s engineers will be doing for the next few months before they announce the final-final shortlist of 20 in next week. If you’re not eager to dig through that many, you can also take a look at the winner of the People’s Choice shortlist, the peepoGPS that helps the visually impaired, or the very large National Judges’ shortlist, which are also being quickly whittled down. There’s loads of interesting projects in there, fortunately all translated into English, which is very helpful considering what a wide net the Dyson Awards tends to cast. Go forth and enjoy.
