1. Glass Creation

2. Power at your fingertips

3. The White Heat of Technology

Highly Commended Everyone Else

Practically each and every one of us will be looking at this or something similar as I speak. So this is spot on.

This puts me in mind of the Smash Commercial, which depicts potato peeling as somehow prehensile and 'old tech'! This one certainly made me think...

This one is so on spec, it hurts! Nevertheless, I hope you all agree, David is onto a Winner with this one.

I can see where you are coming from with Flight. I think Harold Wilson saw Concorde as the Great White Hope which turned out to be a White elephant, while this Vulcan had more staying power as a military plane.

This one almost looks Spooky!


Engineering must have been where it all began!

Highly commended

Even Scientists can have a close shave!

Another highly commended entry

It is not often you can say of a building 'We have lift-off!'

So we round it all off with some wonderful kit which we can all feel at home with.

Many thanks for all your entries. I now pass the baton over to David Trout. Well done, Everyone!
... the best lack all conviction, while the worst
are full of passionate intensity.
