Finalists at the Danish Design Award

The AeroSlider and Quantum Kate AR have been selected among the finalists for the Danish Design Award.

Quantum Kate AR has been shortlisted in the Better Learning category.

Jury statement:

"Studies show that it is a challenge to get children to concentrate on learning and retaining their attention on complex topics. Quantum Kate AR gets children out into the real world, while also teaching them quantum physics. It merges with the digital reality that children and young people live in today, and is designed to appeal especially to girls. Thus, it may contribute to the challenge of getting more girls into STEM-education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). We need to get this into schools."

The AeroSlider has been shortlisted in the Visionary Concepts category.

Jury statement:

"What if?! If nobody had ever thought about going to the moon, nobody would ever have flown to the moon. This solution may not be technologically or commercially feasible at present, but it is bold and truly innovative. Visionary concepts suspend boundaries and do not get bogged down by processes and rules (e.g. geographical borders and government.) The concept solves the problem of air travel and puts minimal strain on the environment, as it is emissionless. We have already seen examples of projects going in this direction (Hyperloop and Maglev solutions), so it may actually be within sight in some years."
