Maker Faire Africa 2010 - UoN

On Friday 27th and Saturday 28th the University of Nairobi played host to a very wonderful event that brought innovative makers together to showcase their works and share ideas.I happened to go to the climax event on Saturday and I was amazed at the creativity of young minds bound to change this world as we know it in a night.The Make Faire event has been running for some time and has provided young makers a launchpad for taking their wonderful creations to a whole new level.
As i made my way though the exhibitions, I made a few stops to ask questions and take a few pictures at the creations.
Specifically, Maker Faire Africa focuses on the following:
----Brighten the light on local examples of the “fabrication” ethos
----Provide mechanisms to incubate these innovators and their products to a point where they can be taken to market
----Connect refined plans to disseminate innovations with...

venture finance.

such a scientific event other than inside the University
of Nairobi.Kudos to them
More pictures.

 The following is a compilation of what transpired at the Saturday event with pics of the hottest innovations. 
 Norbert's Solar Powered Street Light using LED.
This project captured my eyes as i made my way into the ground.It involves a street light that are powered by a battery which is charged using a solar panel.One would say that this is very common because of using solar panels but he employed LEDs which use low power and have a high luminous intensity.
