Worksheet Creativity is GREATTask 6Read the following text about some British inventions of the 20th Century. Which do you think is most innovative?1935 – Cat’s EyesOne foggy night, Percy Shaw was driving on a dark winding road. His life was savedwhen a cat’s eyes reflected his car’s lights, which stopped him from going off the sideof the hill. After his near-death experience, Percy Shaw decided to create somethingsimilar to cats’ eyes by inventing a small device (made of two marbles placed closetogether in a rubber case) which would reflect oncoming car headlights to show theway ahead. Since their invention in 1935, ‘Cat’s Eyes’ have helped motorists to seewhere they are going and have surely prevented countless accidents like the onewhich Percy Shaw avoided. Shaw won an OBE in 1965 and died in September 1976.1983 – Bagless vacuum cleanerIn the late 1970s, James Dyson designed a bagless vacuum cleaner which would notlose suction as it picked up dirt. After five years, and over 5,000 prototypes, Dysonlaunched the ‘G-force’ cleaner in 1983. No manufacturer or distributer would launchhis product in the UK at that time, as they were concerned about the impact it mighthave on the cleaner-bag market. Consequently, Dyson launched it in Japan, where itwon the 1991 International Design Fair prize and sold for 2,000. Later, in 1993,Dyson set up his own manufacturing company in Wiltshire, England. Since then, theDyson vacuum cleaner has become one of the most popular brands in the UK and, in2005, it was the market leader in the US by value. In 1997, Dyson was awarded thePrince Phillip Designers Prize and in 2005 he was elected as a Fellow at The RoyalAcademy of Engineering.1993 – Wind-up radioTrevor Bayliss is another famous British inventor, whose personal focus is on usingtechnology in innovative ways to deal with social problems. He invented the wind-upradio to allow people living in remote areas to stay in touch with the world. In 1989,he watched a TV programme about the spread of AIDS in Africa and felt that oneway spread of the disease could be minimised would be by educating people throughradio broadcasts. Despite early rejection from everyone he approached, the turningpoint came when Bayliss’ wind-up radio was featured on a TV programme, creatinginterest from a number of investors. This enabled Bayliss to form his own company,and since then, Bayliss has received countless awards, met the Queen and NelsonMandela and travelled to Africa to produce a documentary about his life.Furthermore, Bayliss has updated the radio to include a solar panel so that it runs insunshine without winding. In June 2005, Bayliss received an honorary doctorate fromLeeds Metropolitan University and he now runs a company dedicated to helpinginventors develop and sell their chingenglish.org.uk British Council 2012
