Innovative waffle machine designed by IfM students competes for Dyson Award
A revolutionary continuous-flow waffle machine designed by undergraduate students at the IfM has been entered into the James Dyson Award 2016 competition - an international design award that celebrates, encourages and inspires the next generation of design engineers.
BrekTech Wafflestation?is an automated solution for medium-scale waffle production which features remote Bluetooth control. It is unlike anything on the market and is suitable for shops, cafes, hotels and restaurants. The device was designed by Manufacturing Engineering Tripos (MET) students Anthony Rubinstein-Baylis, Adam Gristock and Zoscha Partos.
MET is a programme for 3rd and 4th-year engineering students who have successfully completed the first two years of an engineering degree. As part of their studies, MET students are asked to design a new product with real business potential, which over the years has generated some exciting new ideas and innovative technology.
The James Dyson Award is run by the James Dyson Foundation, James Dyson?s charitable trust, as part of its mission to get young people excited about design engineering. National winners and finalists will be announced on 8 September.
