The importance of technology cannot be over emphasized in our modern world. Looking at the western country, technology has played a vital role in developing their economy.
Few months ago, YEN.COM had an encounter with a young Ghanaian genius frank Darko who resides in Takoradi in the western region, he was a final year student at the Takoradi technical university formally known as Takoradi Polytechnic, pursing a course in graphic design but deferred in his final year in school due to personal reasons. He invented a bicycle that runs on water
He said his creativity was as a result of his love for science and technology, the young investor revealed that this special bicycle was aimed at helping school children in the community who had to swim to school to find an easier path and also solve situation whereby communities located along riverside and are cut off during huge rainfall or river flow find a means.
He said his invention started in august last year and with lots of effort and hard work he managed to finish his invention.
Now the young inventor believing in his finished work, decided to test it out on the sea to prove to the world that his invention is real and have come to stay.
This is a wake-up call on Africa and its leaders to encourage and support our young inventors for a better Africa.
