Over the summer we wrote about the Israeli inventor who created the first cardboard bicycle; a project many experts had considered impossible.

Well, Izhar Gafni and Nimrod Elmish of  I.G. Cardboard are expanding on their first venture and  developing  cardboard wheelchairs!

An amazing and incredibly simple innovation is helping Sudanese refugees cook despite the scarcity of resources.  To help them rebuild their lives,  a UK charity organization  is sending families “solar cookers” which reduces the need for firewood (a very scarce resource in eastern Chad).
