In the earlier article Three New Things Campaign by Virgin Media Business, we had penned about Three New Things Campaign by Virgin Media Business and now here in this article we have discussed about the winners and their innovations of the same campaign.
After the thorough evaluation of inventions, judges selected those THREE winners who got announced at the British Film Museum on 12th of March. The entries were evaluated by technology commentator Monty Munford, Dr Ling Ge who has expertise in quantum computing and nanotechnology, Ella Weston, who leads WPP’s Stream series of digital events and Emily Memarzia who is a digital consultant for the IC tomorrow programme managed by the Government’s Technology Strategy Board.
Of course it was a hard time for judges to select the best inventions as there were 250 contestants and it was up to audience who were present in the event to select the best invention among those three inventions. So which were those three new things? And which of them got the audience attention? Read it below.
Which Are Those Three New Things?
I am quite sure that you are eager to know those three new innovations and the selected three new things by Virgin Media Business campaign are CubeSat, Buffalo Grid and Three Over Seven, and one which got the highest votes by the audience from the three innovations was Three Over Seven. 7% of audience voted for CubeSat, 39% casted their votes to Buffalo Grid and 54% of the audience went for Three Over Seven invention.
Let’s know these three new things in brief.
Phillip Keane has brought the people-powered 3D space-based connectivity solution in a very low budget. CubeSat structures are the casings for tiny satellites which are now being sold for $2,500, but the 3D CubeSat pulls down the expenses by 75%. It also saves the launch cost as this space-resistant material can be 3D printed inside another structure already exist in space.
Overall this new 3D CubeSat makes it easy to explore the space affordable for everyone including schools and Universities.
Buffalo Grid is a solar powered mobile charging hub which are being distributed to African entrepreneurs for free who are not connected to the main electrical grid. The Buffalo Grid allows them to charge the mobile phones of their customers. Customers just send a SMS to pay for charging and the Buffalo Grid unlocks a charge port.

You will get your custom made shoes day after the placing of the order which perfectly fits to your feet. Three Over Seven among the three innovation grabbed most of the audience attention and got highest votes.
All three winners will get support and free business telecoms from Virgin Media Business and along with this they will be given a chance to meet Mr. Richard Branson to discuss their ambitions.
