It is said that necessity is the mother of invention. But our universities could make a plausible claim for parentage too. Andrei Geim and Konstantin Novoselov from Manchester University were yesterday awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics for creating the new material "graphene". Meanwhile, Samuel Adeloju, an industrial design graduate from the University of New South Wales, was awarded the James Dyson Award for his "buoyancy bazooka". Graphene, with its highly unusual physical properties, has the potential to revolutionise electronics and a host of areas of high-tech manufacturing. And Mr Adeloju's bazooka, which can fire an emergency buoyancy aid 400 feet out to sea, could be a valuable new tool in the armoury of lifeguards. These two inventions could improve lives and save them.

Unfortunately for Martin Johnson and the rest of the red-rose hierarchy, they are unlikely to be any the wiser come the end of November.
