Next Big Thing 2017

Healthcare Competition


A group of students recently took part in the Siemens Healthcare 'Next Big Thing' competition, which is organised by SATRO.  Competing schools included Charterhouse, Gordons, LVS Ascot, and ACS.  

After discussing and researching various ideas, our team came up with an excellent product:  Visionvibe - a headband with a camera and bone conduction earphones and linked app to assist deafblind people. The developed their idea with the help of a mentor from Siemens and had to consider its marketing, finances and production. 

Their stand was superb and they gave a brilliant presentation, which the judges said was the best in the competition, but sadly, another team took the overall first prize.
