The British Library will be hosting a free exhibition on British inventions of the last decade.
Inventing the 21st Century will be on display in the Folio Society Gallery at St Pancras from the 6 September to the end of November. There are more details on another page.
I've been curating the exhibition and we hope that the stories behind the fifteen inventions will be inspiring to everyone, not just designers or inventors. It's been a lot of hard work, but also enjoyable choosing the inventions and making preparations, including an extensive programme of events about commercialising inventions. It's all part of the British Library's commitment to its Business & IP Centre, which fosters innovation and business.
There is also a book, also called Inventing the 21st Century, which the British Library will be publishing at the same time, with 50 stories on modern inventions. Coverage will be international in the book, and covers issues of interest and concern in everyday lives.
