Over the last three months we’ve invited people to submit their designs for computer systems that demonstrate creativity as well as tackling real social, human interest problems experienced by charities large and small: such as contributing to the battle to reduce carbon emissions; bringing conservation closer to the people that use technology; opening channels of communication for abused and vulnerable children and identifying new opportunities for disabled people. We’ve reduced the entries down to five finalists – all of whom are addressing real issues in an innovative way. Everything from “The Lean Green Wind-Powered IT Machine” to St Basils “Virtual Rucksack” for supporting homeless young people.
Now it’s your chance to vote to turn one of these into reality – take a look at all of the entries, and cast your vote by the end of Friday.
The winner will work with a team of technical architects to turn their idea into reality. Of course, they are all worthy winners. I don’t want to influence your vote at all, but did I mention St Basils work specifically with homeless young people aged 16-25?
