Digital x-ray glasses and student innovations

brilliant students from universities around the world who have developed a number of world-changing inventions will present their ideas at the Red Bull Cellar Global Finals in March.

Incredible innovations such as Digital X-Ray Glasses, Noise Canceling Moving Space and Dynamic Smart Pens are set to be unveiled to global visionaries including Kudzi Chikumbu, a leading community builder and developer of one of the world’s largest entertainment short-form video platforms, Gener8 Founder and CEO Sam Jones, Founder and CEO of World Wide Generation, Manjula Lee, Gaming and eSports General Manager of Intel, Marcus Kennedy, and Senior Vice President, Marketing Operations at NTT Ltd, Ceri McCall.

The 44 teams from 43 different countries will take part in three intense days at the Global Final in Istanbul from March 25th to 27th, with workshops and mentoring sessions as well as access to some of the most innovative thought leaders in the world.

The technical solutions imagined by the Red Bull Basement finalists focus on eight sustainability categories inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: Body and Mind, Careers, Clean Water, Climate Action, Education, Empowerment, Energy and smart cities.

The finalists’ ideas include Noise Canceling Moving Space, developed by a team of students from Japan’s Mie University, which reduces the impact of external noise such as trains and traffic, a dynamic smart pen from New Zealand’s Media Design School that translates handwriting into a digital format also converts collecting medical and mood data and digital x-ray glasses pitched by two sisters from the University of Johannesburg that allow the wearer to take and transmit X-ray scans instantly.

Presenting their idea of ​​digital X-ray glasses, South African twin sisters Matlhogonolo and Masego Mphahlele said: “Our journey began in 2019 when one of our teammates was injured playing football. Seeing her pain while waiting for an x-ray in the hospital, we realized there had to be a quicker solution, and so the idea of ​​our digital x-ray glasses was born.

“We can’t wait to present our project to the jury and if we are successful we hope to be able to take X-ray technology to a new level, giving hospitals access to this innovative technology while reducing the time patients wait for a scan.”

Other finalists include a solution by a team of Italian students looking to improve recycling statistics, with a smart bin that automatically recognizes and sorts waste, starlight tiles to be put up by a team of Loughborough University students illuminating when enter and a portable drinking bottle that sterilizes water with sunlight to provide clean water anywhere, anytime, developed by the team from Brazil.

Teiba Ahmed and Amy Dring Loughborough University students, who will propose their idea of ​​starry light tiles, said: “Our idea was prompted in part by recent news about Sarah Everard, women’s safety at night and by a women’s group at Battersea Park called Wandsworth Angels, of which Teiba was involved. They have created a petition to add more street lighting in Battersea Park but due to wildlife the park cannot be lit overnight.

“So as a solution, we designed unobtrusive pedestrian walkway tiles that activate built-in LEDs when walked on, illuminating the pedestrian’s path without having a negative impact on the environment or society.

“Winning Red Bull Basement would give us an absolutely incredible opportunity to take our design to the next level and as such we look forward to introducing the concept to the judges at the Global Final.”

Students from previous editions of Red Bull Basement have made a global impact. In 2020, Brunel University’s Joanna Power and Paramveer Bhachu designed and built an innovative water-saving device, the Lava Aqua X portable electric washing machine.

In 2019, winners Sophie Bolzer and Nadine Szentivanyi from Austria founded Audvice, which helps companies unlock the power of voice messaging to more effectively share information between their teams, partners and customers.
