Just a quick point to athe great blog AfriGadget which deals with innovation and creativity in Africa.

AfriGadget is a website dedicated to showcasing African ingenuity. A team of bloggers and readers contribute their pictures, videos and stories from around the continent. The stories of innovation are inspiring. It is a testament to Africans bending the little they have to their will, using creativity to overcome life’s challenges. [snippet from here]

The examples are simply stunning, reaching from farming innovations to camel-milk cooling devices, often combining high tech, low tech and garbage to create useful and simple machines.

The founder of AfriGadget is the same guy who stands behind UshahidiErik Hersman. Here is a small slideshow-presentation of AfriGadget on The World.
