Celebrate design and humanitarianism by checking out all of these James Dyson Award innovations. The James Dyson Award, if you didn't know, is an international design competition that tasks students from 18 different countries to "design something that solves a problem."

Needless to say, the award has led to some pretty incredible designs. The James Dyson Award is great because it encourages designers to help out the underprivileged people of the world. Of course, the designs are not solely limited to third world countries -- a lot of James Dyson Award designs attempt to solve practical first world problems such as inferior bicycle helmets and bulletin boards that don't charge gadgets.
