Description: Swinburne industrial design graduate Edward Linacre yesterday received the $16 500 James Dyson Award prize money for his Airdrop irrigation-by-condensation system. A further $16 500 was presented to Swinburne's Faculty of Design. Edward’s unique irrigation system was announced as the 2011 Dyson award winner last month and has captured the attention of some of the world’s top designers and commercial developers in the US, Asia and the Middle East. Using a turbine to force air underground, the Airdrop collects and distributes moisture to crops, providing a low-tech solution to maintain agriculture in arid climates.
