- A water filter “which will cost very little and will give people in poverty clean water to drink”
- Personalised speakers made using recycled materials to “help prevent the environment from further harm and depletion of natural resources”
- A guitar capo made using generative design to use “the minimum possible amount of material in the minimum possible amount of time”
