Vinay Venkatraman - Technology Crafts for the Digitally Underserved

Venkatraman talked about little shops in the developing world that fix broken electronics. They have a culture where they fix things locally and use cheap fabrication. During the industrial revolution, people made stuff at home, and now people are doing the same thing – tinkering. Venkatraman worked to repurpose some technology to make a cell phone projector lunch box that can bring video to classrooms in India. He also made an alarm clock mouse microcontroller that can provide cheap health diagnostics.
