Tan Kah Kee Young Inventors’ Award Competition 2012
The Tan Kah Kee Young Inventors' Award has been in existence since 1986 to laude inventors for their inventions that are original, practical and which can be commercialised to generate wealth for the country.
Tan Kah Kee Young Inventors' Award is jointly organised by the Tan Kah Kee Foundation, the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), the Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) and the DSO National Laboratories, with the support of Science Centre Singapore. More details can be found at: http://www.tkkfoundation.org.sg/tkk/foundation/young/invest_eng.shtml
Their project, Collapsible Personnel Weapon (CPW), has won the commendation award. The CPW is an outer shell design to be used with a sub-machine gun. The invention allows the traditionally bulky profiles of a regular sub-machine gun to be collapsed into a hexagonal pipe shape for easier storage and concealment. Figure 1 shows the team members, while Figure 2 shows the team’s poster and their prototype.
The event is on 24 Mar 2012.
