A FORMER Bradford student, who came up with a stunning design for a stage lighting cowl, inspired by the scales of an armadillo, has seen his work exhibited on London's South Bank.

James Ward, 22, is a former Dixons City Academy pupil who has recently graduated from Brunel University where he studied engineering and the cowl was his final year project.

He said: “Standard stage lights look incredibly ugly and dull so one of the first aims was to design a shell – inspired by the armoured body of an armadillo, to make them elegant.

“But the product, called the Veil, is about more than just pretty looks. It also contains tiny lights which can respond to both voices and musical instruments glowing and changing colour during a performance.”

It featured in the Made in Brunel Exhibitio at the Barge House, Oxo Tower Wharf, London.
