This year's Microsoft Imagine Cup set out an ambitious challenge for student inventors — how to use technology to solve the world's toughest problems.

Teams from all over the world participated and flew into Sydney to proudly display their gadgets, some of which have been months, if not years, in the making.

ZDNet hit the Imagine Cup 2012 showroom at the Sydney Convention Centre to experience first-hand just what the participants had on offer.

Highlights include the demonstration of a Kinect-controlled shopping trolley, gloves that can translate sign language and a mobile phone application that can detect explosives.
