The Ignite: Diabetes Ideas Challenge is calling upon designers to submit innovative proposals for an insulin delivery device. This competition hopes to bring forth concepts that build upon previous user experience and technological advances, to provide new, innovative, cost-effective and scalable ways to deliver insulin treatment to people living with diabetes. Submissions must meet the following three criteria to be considered: accessibility—the design must be usable by a broad population, including the young and old, people with strong or weak hands, or others with impaired hand use or vision; appropriateness—it must be easy to integrate into daily life and aesthetically pleasing in form, while also being robust and of high-quality; functionality—designs must meet the requirements of being a medical tool. Prizes of $5,000 each will be awarded to the ten most exceptional designs. The deadline to enter is May 10, 2013, and the winners will be announced May 30, 2013.
