    I vote for the two young men at LeHigh University who patented a less invasive device for a tracheotomy. It is a matter of life and death and must be very frightening for the patient. Anything that proves less invasive the better.

    Seen the video. the concept is very useful specially for the indian conditions where there is accute requirement of potable water in both segments , rural and urban. The cost is such that can be afforded by the lowest paid also. It could go a long way to maintain the health profile of our people. weldone OsmoPure team.

    The protection from tangential load impact (over the typical normal load impact) – using suitable viscoelastic cushioning – is a good idea.

  25. Norma Garcia Reply

    Simple and inexpensive fix that will make a huge impact!

  32. Howard Qi Reply

    The ineteresting helmet invented by the Michigan Technological University folks wins my vote I think it has potentially many uses other than for playing football.

  33. Ma Zee Reply

    I vote for the Universal connector for it will help create job and improves the live of the people in the rural area to transport their product from farm to market place where they can exchange their commodities.

  36. Dave Reply

    I vote for OneBreath! It’s helping a huge unmet need that nobody is even paying attention to. Although water is important, there’s a lot of bright folks already working on it.

  37. Mary Marcoux Reply

    Go Sarah! I am all for innovation, and years ago when I worked at UCLA we did research on hylaine membrane disease. This ventilator sounds like a boon for third world countries?

  38. Cara Siebert Reply

    LoChlorine: Need low cost chlorine producer and doser very badly also in the arsenic prone areas of India, Bangladesh and neighboring countries where pond, dugwell, river water can be used in the rural, remote areas that is arsenic safe. To develop infra-structure to supply potable water via pipeline is still like a dream for some villagers.

    Onebreath ventilaor, ventilator that is needed all over.

    Too bad OsmoPure was not already available for the folks of Haiti and Chile, just for starters.

  48. ES Karthikeyan Reply

    Kudos to AYZH! Millions of rural women will have a safe delivery.

  49. Eric Reply

    My vote is for Osmopure – seems so much more convenient than the backpack since everyone will be able to carry it and use it as needed. Good commercial and explanation too.

    Not that the other ideas aren’t useful, especially the less invasive trach, but water purification has more of an impact

    AP. What exactly makes you think cornell didn’t pay for their material? Pretty serious claims without any proof.
