    A gamer's journey through the body

    Imagine being able to see your illness? Travelling through your own body to see the problem area. Dr John McGhee from UNSW Art and Design is helping stroke patients at Sydney’s St Vincent’s Hospital come to terms with their diagnosis using 3D techniques normally employed in the games industry. Doctors say it makes a huge difference not having to explain conventional scan images which are usually difficult for the patient to grasp.

    "Robocop" helmet

    "Robocop" helmet

    UNSW design student Alfred Boyadgis has won a prestigous Red Dot design award  for his futuristic motor cycle cop helmet that has facial recognition technology and a fully integrated communications system. Currently, police officers on motorcycles have heavy helmets that are without any smart phone-style technology and communication devices available to other officers.

    "Even though motorcycle police are often first on the scene, they rely on poor technology," says Alfred, the 23-year-old industrial design student from UNSW. "They sometimes even have mobile phones tucked under their helmets."

    The new lightweight helmet, which has received interest locally and internationally, enables rapid communication between emergency services. Among its features is a GPS and the first semi-modular visor system to increase vision and improve safety by more than 65 percent.

But a new award-winning innovation by an Australian design student will change all that. Roam is a lightweight oxygen cylinder that was developed for a design project at UNSW Australia. It has since won two international design awards and received seed funding to get it into production.
