Frugal Digital er af projekterne hos CIID Research, som er super inspirerende at følge. TED har netop lagt Vinay Venkatramans præsentation op fra TEDxSummit i Doha fra engang i foråret, hvor han introducerer et par af projekterne.
“Two-thirds of the world may not have access to the latest smartphone, but local electronic shops are adept at fixing older tech using low-cost parts. Vinay Venkatraman explains his work in “technology crafts,” through which a mobile phone, a lunchbox and a flashlight can become a digital projector for a village school, or an alarm clock and a mouse can be melded into a medical device for local triage. Vinay Venkatraman aims to design technological devices for the “bottom of the pyramid” rather than simply for the affluent.”
Så, hvad går du og bruger dine design skills til?
