When Flinders University’s Professor Colin Raston unboiled an egg earlier this year with his ‘Vortex Fluidic Device’, in a feat previously considered impossible by science, he made TV screens and front pages all over the world.
Flinders University can boast an Ig Nobel prize! Professor Colin Raston has been honoured with the coveted award for inventing a device that can change the structure of proteins, famously demonstrated by uncooking an egg.
The feat of science that has “made people laugh, then made them think” has earned him and his team a “baby” Nobel, a prize almost as famous as its Swedish namesake.
A world-leading expert in manipulating the human experience by playing with the senses, is joining forces with Flinders to find out how people influence our ability to pay attention to the world around us.
