502 Bad Gateway

Aspiring designers, engineers and inventors are set to battle it out in a “Dragons Den” inspired event which has become a magnet for global talent.

The annual Blackwood Design Awards attract both gifted amateurs and seasoned professionals to showcase innovations to change the lives of disabled people.

Previous winners have included a spoon that doesn’t spill and an eye-controlled wheelchair. This year the competition will be made up of two distinct categories – Best New Product and Best New Concept.

Edinburgh-based Blackwood has been a leading name for 40 years in the housing and care sector, operating across Scotland and is renowned for its work in adapting properties to let people who are disabled, elderly or have sensory impairments, to live independently.

4c Design, one of Scotland’s top product design companies will also provide some professional support and guidance on design development.
