Date:


Up to six projects by students from the Master's Degree in Product Design and Development are competing in the prestigious international James Dyson Award product design competition.

The projects correspond to the 5 working groups of the Master's course 2020-21, formed by 22 students of the programme and tutored by Xavi Riudor, Salva Fàbregas and David Adrover; as well as the project 'ATHOS', which was born in the previous edition of the Master's course and which its authors have continued to develop on their own in collaboration with several companies. The 3 winning projects of the national phase of the competition will be announced on 25 August. Discover the nominated projects:

Urbee

Urbee' is a hotel for pollinating insects made with Multi Jet Fusion technology and designed to improve their condition and environment by providing nests around the city. It also measures temperature and humidity, providing insight into indoor environmental conditions.

Pango

Waistcoat with back protection for motorcyclists. Lightweight, breathable for warm weather, foldable to take up minimum space and to be able to store it in the helmet, customizable, printed in 3D so that the protections adapt to the back of each person.

Cervox

Cervox helps and improves the therapy of bruxism patients. Due to the Electro Anaesthesia this device eliminates the pain in only 15 minutes during approximately 24 hours without contradictions.

Athos

Climbing shoes are really uncomfortable and can cause significant foot injuries. To make climbing more enjoyable and healthier, we have designed the first customised climbing shoe to provide greater adaptability and better performance for each user.

YouCup

YouCup takes the conventional cup and adapts it to personal needs. All this is possible thanks to YouData. It is a simple device that allows to know some parameters of the vagina that are necessary when choosing a menstrual cup.

Blooming Posidonia

The problem we are focusing on is the extinction of posidonia in the Mediterranean Sea. To solve this problem, we saw that the clearest option was to design a product that would allow us to cultivate it outside the sea in a controlled way.
