Togo is one of the smallest countries in Africa. Still, from it came Sam Kodo who is regarded as one of the continent’s greatest innovators. Kodo developed a humanoid robot, able to communicate with humans when he was only 19. He has gone on to invent the first African low-cost computer. It was at the age of 7 that Kodo began working on his first Robot. With the help of his parents, he got toys and old gadgets which he broke down and built back up. By the time he was fifteen, his robot could do some important things like recognize faces and objects, as well as speak and understand. His journey took him to the creation of smartphones and PCs which he makes through a company he founded called Infinite Loop. The company deals in the production of low-cost personal computers for students.
