The James Dyson Award competition rewards young designers who come up with next generation concepts and designs. PSFK looks at the top three winners of this year’s competition:

Winner: LONGREACH Buoyancy Deployment System

This buoyancy bazooka was designed by industrial design student Samuel Adeloju and allows for the rapid shooting of an emergency buoyancy aid to a drowning victim up to 500 feet away in the water, thus enabling him to remain afloat for a longer time, while actual rescue operations are prepared.
