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. Read more about Street Swags.

In 2007, the winner of the People’s Choice Award was Danish designer Hân Pham. She won the prize for the design of Antivirus; a yellow plastic cap that turns beverage cans into a container for used needles. Read more about Antivirus:

The first winner of the People’s Choice Award, back in 2005, was Vestergaard-Frandsen’s iconic LifeStraw™, which a short time before had brought home the INDEX:Award in the Body category. Read more about the LifeStraw™:

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...

Im Focus: Scientists improve forecast of increasing hazard on Ecuadorian volcano

Researchers from the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, the Italian Space Agency (ASI), and the Instituto Geofisico--Escuela Politecnica Nacional (IGEPN) of Ecuador, showed an increasing volcanic danger on Cotopaxi in Ecuador using a powerful technique known as Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR).

The Andes region in which Cotopaxi volcano is located is known to contain some of the world's most serious volcanic hazard. A mid- to large-size eruption has...
