London, Oct. 27 (CNA) Taiwan bagged 22 gold, nine silver, seven bronze medals and three special awards at the 12th British Invention Show, its best showing ever at the United Kingdom's largest exhibition of invention, innovation and technology. Taiwanese research teams from eight universities, two high schools and two companies presented 23 inventions offering new applications of wave power, green energy, and optoelectronics.
