Taiwan inventors walked away with 35 awards from this year's Nuremberg International Invention Exhibition yesterday. Some 700 works by inventors representing 32 countries were entered in the annual event this year, which took place in Nuremberg, Germany, from Nov. 2 to 5. The Taiwan delegation was headed by Kao Fa-yu (高發育), former president and founder of the Taiwan Prominent Inventors Association. The Taiwan delegation submitted 36 works and captured 34 awards, comprising 14 gold, five silver and 15 bronze medals -- a record for Taiwan inventors in the Nuremberg exhibition. Far East University in Tainan, which is noted for its ability to roll out new inventions, won a special award from organizers. Inventions submitted by members of the Taiwan delegation included a stove that uses nitrogen as fuel and a vehicle auto-brake system for anti-retrogression.
