1. The Paper pulp moulded helmet is made from discarded newspapers that currently circulate the London transport network. The helmets can be produced on a large scale using little energy and can be dispensed in conjunction with the Barclays bicycle hire scheme to help encourage safety among cycle hire users. Each Helmet will cost under £1 to produce, making it much cheaper and more environmentally friendly than anything else on the market.

  2. Who we are is intrinsically connected to what we do and the things we build. So what does a lifetime of making things look like?

    The Makers of Things - a short film collection by Anne Hollowday - documents the work and workshops of the Society for Model and Experimental Engineers, a sprawling organisation with members all over the world. Their common tools and methods mask a huge array of interests and skills, from experimental tinkerers to woodworkers and librarians, all brought together under the roof of their South London headquarters.

    The Woodworker
    Norman Billingham's workshop has been pulled up around him over a lifetime. Chippings, clippings and filings fill a garage used to transform lumps of wood into beautiful pens and functional furniture. Although a scientist by training, Norman is the first to admit he's always been a maker of things.

    The Model Engineer
    In the flickering light of a cinema Mike Chrisp watched a gentle Ealing comedy that would change his life. Now the linchpin of a world-renowned group of hobbyists and tinkerers, he builds models of the machines that inspired him all those years ago.

    The Problem Solver
    Mike Kapp lives in a peaceful cul-desac, quietly shaping his house into a system of his invention. Cat-flaps, clocks and ghostly machines are the fruits of a lifetime of problem solving and inquiry. His experience holds a lesson for us all: curiosity is the key to craftsmanship.

    The Society
    SMEE isn't like any other engineering society. It's a community united by a passion for making things and testing ideas. Their unparalleled devotion to their craft is evidence of a universal truth that's relevant to us all; we learn only by doing.
