Sponsored Video: Three New Things
Virgin are always at the forefront of everything cool, with Mr Branson at the helm they are never far away from a good story or front page, and Virgin Media with brand ambassador Usain Bolt is the perfect example. Virgin Media Business have been working with entrepreneurs from around the world with their latest Three New Things campaign, as they try to choose a winner and a technology that they believe will change the world as we know it.
The three technologies couldn’t be more different (apart from being awesome) and include:
- Solar Charging Hubs from Buffalo Grid
- 3D Printed Satellites from CubeSat
- 3D Printed Shoes (to fit) from Three Over Seven
The event and presentations were held in London, with the winners being chosen by the audience at the event in a live type finale affair, with the winning idea and company going on spend time with Richard Branson himself and help develop their ideas. The idea with the most votes was Three Over Seven, who offer customers the chance to scan their feet with their mobile, and craft themselves custom, made to fit shoes that are delivered within 24 hours. The perfect fit to your own feet!
Peter Kelly, Managing Director of Virgin Media Business, said: “When cutting edge technology meets imagination, the results can be spectacular. Reading these entries has been an inspiring process and has unearthed some genuine game-changers with the power to change lives around the world. As the UK gears up for growth again, this is exactly the kind of creativity and entrepreneurialism that we need to nurture in this country – from Government schemes to community networks: we all have a part to play in supporting UK innovation”.
Three Over Seven have already been on our radar for the Wool Runners, and creating shoes completely out of woll, and we wish them all the very best, and maybe the chance for some new shoes very soon?!
