The innovation zone was packed full of ground-breaking engineering projects. This includes a robot from Sundance and an impressive EOD Bomb Disposal Suit from Creative Hubb.


NTU's product design showcase demonstrated the creative, innovative projects of the next generation of product design engineers. Recent graduates of NTU's product design course were on hand to overview their innovative projects and discuss their ideas with industry professionals at the show. Graduate projects on display included:

  • BSc Product Design student Tom McNeill's purely mechanical lead climbing auto-belay. Lead Solo offers rope freely to the climber as they ascend the route, and catches them if they fall, safely lowering them to the ground. 
  • BSc Product Design graduate Joshua Dennis presents the NextGen robot, Standing 140cm tall, and made of aluminium, steel and 3D printed parts, NextGen is the perfect platform for education, teaching pupils about electronics, mechanics, programming and, of course, robotics. 
  • Arshiya Jain presents Skinease - This innovative 3-in-1 product offers personalized relief, cooling therapy, and safety features to transform the lives of those struggling with persistent skin irritation.
  • Outdoor enthusiast and product designer Ben Holmes unveils his latest creation, an updated and improved ‘Immediate Care Rucksack’ specifically designed to enhance the capabilities of mountain rescue teams in the UK. This innovative backpack combines functionality, durability, and portability to provide an all-in-one solution for immediate medical care in challenging mountainous environments.

    Furthermore, they demonstrated the latest in visualization tools - Gravity sketch.
