The solar car and the bed that can charge a phone


We love this little story from the BBC about Samuel Karimbo from Kenya, who has been inventing all sorts of clever gadgets for nearly 10 years.

In this short video he introduces a few of his innovations including a solar car and a bed that can charge a mobile phone by capturing energy from the movements made during sex!

It’s a great example of how local innovation and manufacture in Africa can help provide jobs and products which people really need. Let us know what you think and if you have seen any other African innovations.
