Incredibly simple inventions that are changing the world – The world’s most pressing issues need smart solutions, but that doesn’t necessarily mean high-tech.
While various cutting-edge innovations, such as mind-controlled robotic body suits and microchip drug delivery, are improving the lives of people across the globe, there are also a number of equally impactful inventions with little-to-no electronics, like a lamp powered only by gravity.
These inventions are saving lives through simplicity. Many women and girls around the world do not have access to basic sanitary protection – especially in parts of the developing world. The menstrual cup is one affordable and reusable solution. The bell-shaped product, made of surgical-grade silicone, worn inside, can be washed and reused.
More than 4 million people — mostly women and children – die every year from health problems associated with inhaling carbon monoxide or pollutants from stoves that burn wood, biomass or coal. The ACE 1 from African Clean Energy, is a popular, relatively inexpensive model that produces fewer emissions.
