Will Broadway's "Isobar" has been designed to keep vaccines at the ideal temperature while in transit in developing countries.
And Will doesn't plan to make money from his creation.
His focus is to get it to people who need it, which is why he won't be trying to get a patent.
This invention by a British student could save millions of lives across the world - BBC Newsbeat

Brilliant...but he really should get a patent on it.

People in California almost universally have access to reliable refrigeration. People in many parts of Africa do not.
