The James Dyson Awards have a simple brief: “Design something that solves a problem.” The top video is for a conductive body paint (not sure what problem that solves, but still cool), the second is for a kind of fastener technology for consumer electronics that would make post-consumer disassembly much faster and cheaper (looks like a bonus app in hardware hacking, too!).

You can see all the entries on the link below – the winners will be announced in November.
