Mouser Electronics has allied in recognizing the 2020 contest winners, who were announced at a special virtual awards ceremony on November 10.
Mouser is the sponsor of the Create the Future Design Contest. Mouser’s valued suppliers, Intel and Analog Devices teamed with Mouser in sponsoring the 18th annual contest, produced by SAE Media Group, a SAE International Company.
“We congratulate this year’s winners and thank all of the entrants for their participation,” said Kevin Hess, Mouser Senior Vice President of Marketing. “Mouser strives to empower innovation, and we are proud to sponsor the Create the Future Design Contest and its mission to foster and reward ingenuity.”
Together with COMSOL and SAE Media Group, Mouser will award the $20,000 grand prize to the team at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, who developed RepelWrap, a nature-inspired, transparent and flexible plastic film that significantly repels contamination.
Finalists were selected by senior editors at SAE Media Group, producer of the contest, and judged by an independent panel of design engineers.
The Create the Future Design Contest brings attention to product designs that enhance quality of life, improve the efficiency and quality of healthcare or help to reduce dependence on non renewable energy sources.
