A baby bootie that could help prevent sudden infant death syndrome won Jacob Colvin the title of BYU Student Innovator of the Year. The boot monitors a sleeping infant's heart rate and blood oxygen. See the boot in this video.

Follow the Money
The World Bank said it couldn't be done, but going one country at a time, BYU students have mapped every known project funded by foreign aid. See their AidData maps.
