A chair that calms autistic children, a solar-powered fridge and a solution to global water problems…

Cambridge engineering students display their latest innovations

A chair that creates a safe haven for autistic children, a fridge powered by the sun and an economical way to provide clean water in developing countries are just some of the latest ideas by Cambridge University students hoping to bring new products to market.


The ideas went on display at the Design Show this week run by the University’s Institute for Manufacturing (IfM). The annual showcase is a chance for the best undergraduate manufacturing engineers to show off their ideas to local inventors, industrialists and designers, looking to spot the next big thing.
