The fourth edition of the Global Grad Show, held in partnership with Investment Corporation of Dubai, featured a first look at 150 of the inventions shaping our tomorrow. The ideas came from passionate, upcoming design graduates of 61 nationalities from 100 universities, including Harvard, MIT and RCA to find solutions to the world’s most pressing issues.

The show provided an inspiring and optimistic look at what is in store for the next generation. The solutions and prototypes ranged from the physical to the virtual, high-tech and complex to small and conceptually simple. Technology for doctors that can identify cancer cells using a pen, solutions to combat declining bee populations, a ring that helps the visually impaired to retain their independence, affordable ways to tackle climate change and much more.
