Pick your favorite design among the 60 finalists for INDEX: Award 2011 and cast your vote.
The design with the most votes on August 26th will be crowned the winner of INDEX: People's Choice Award - and between all the votes for the winning design, we will pick a lucky winner, who gets to go to the award show with a friend.
INDEX: People's Choice Award 2011 is kindly sponsored by renowned Danish furniture manufacturer Fritz Hansen, and the winner will receive "The Egg" - a beautiful chair designed by famous Danish designer Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for the Radisson SAS hotel in Copenhagen.
During the competition, everyone can vote for their own personal INDEX: favorite. You can vote for as many different designs as you like, and you can vote as many times as you like. Good luck!
In 2009, at the INDEX: Award Ceremony; Jean Madden from Brisbane, Australia, was declared the winner of the People’s Choice Award. The winning design, Street Swags, is a bed and a bag designed to provide more comfort, warmth and protection from weather for people living on the street.

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...
Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion
Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
