The hi-tech gnome and other inventions


The fourth annual Made in Brunel conference concluded on Wednesday with more than 150 projects on display in London.

The exhibition marks the end of a four-year design and engineering course for Brunel students hoping to make it big with their final-year projects.

A wide array of inventions was on show, including a hi-tech garden gnome, an automated spirits dispenser and a integrated bicycle lock and pedal.

Also attending were design consultants and industrial figures, scouting out the most innovative ideas and gadgets.

Jason Palmer took a look at some of the exhibits.
