My winning proposal: Dyson award makes dreams come true

Julian Jagtenberg’s cuddly, lullaby-singing robot for people with insomnia scooped a national prize in the James Dyson Award competition in 2016. A focus on product and a visually arresting presentation helped him win, he tells Antoaneta Roussi.

The James Dyson Award is open to current graduate or postgraduate engineering or design students (including PhD students) or anyone who has been a graduate or postgraduate student in the past four years. Team applications are encouraged.

The competition, which is run by the James Dyson Foundation, is aimed at people who have already developed an innovative idea or prototype product and are looking for an extra boost to put it on the market. However, those with products that are already commercialised can apply.
