  • Amuzing as always – The British Invention Show 2017

    Posted on November 10th, 2017 Mr. Leo Siemann No comments

    The BIS 2017 was held at Barbican Exhibition Hall in London, same place as last year. The first difference I’ve noticed was Banksy art at the wall right opposite the front door :) The next one was that international number of inventors had risen compared to previous year and number of British inventors was a little less , say 1/4 th only. Exhibition was groovy as always. I saw very simple inventions and complicated ones. The youngest inventor at the show was 12 years old Sarah from London with her LollySpin, the flashiest was Paul A. Sparrow with his  X-Pro Tools , the sharpest was Martin Chard with his Marxman pen , the furthest South-Korean Electrical Corporation Inventors with their Cable Failure Detection and Line Finder and  the coolest for me personally were National Defence University of Malaysia professors with their inventions Bamboocrete and  How to make the Hydrogen out of Algi.  Yes, there was lots to see and discover and surely we will go back to the show next year. To prove that here is well educational interview with the english inventor Paul A Sparrow who invented this new kind of spirit level and also started a very first crowdfunding platform in Britain :

    The Awards & afterparty  were held at Charted Accountants House which is a impressive building in the City of London and also has a great cuisine. The band which played  for us  was led by Roderick Brosse who is also an inventor but  known to the public as quitarrist from the Beatles album “Imagine”. Awards ceremony was held by Kane Kramer, the founder the British Invention Show and inventor of the first Digital Audio Player. Here is a great chat we had with Kane later on

    The slideshow can be seen here which was taken by my mate Inch. Enjoy :)
