Rickard Hederstierna from the Lund Institute of Technology in Sweden is the winner of the Electrolux Design Lab 2009 competition for inventing the Cocoon, the meat and fish maker.

"Cocoon" is a sustainable response to the world's growing population and its desire to consume meat and fish. Similar to heating popcorn in a microwave, Cocoon prepares pre-packaged meat and fish dishes by heating muscle cells identified by radio frequency identification (RFID) signals. The signals detect the specific dish and then suggest the required cooking time. This process uses science to create food, lifting a burden on the planet by reducing the need for further intensive farming and fishing.

Second place was for the Water Catcher, the flying rain catcher and water purifier by Penghao Shan from Zhejiang Sci-tech University, China

Third place was for Renew, the smart steamer by Louis Filosa from Purdue University, USA

The People's choice (as voted for online) was for the Teleport Fridge, the refrigerator that teleports food by Dulyawat Wongnawa from Chulalongkorn University, Thailand.
