Where Science Meets Real Life...

Meet Dominic, an inventor from Kenya who is able to utilize common resources found around him to create innovative tools that improve the life of those around him. His latest invention is the Flat Parabolic Mirror. That's right, you heard me correct.

This little gadget is able to better heat water, and generate electricity which is handy when living in an rural area where such luxuries are not readily available. In addition to being handy, it is extremely cheap to make, and can be easily dismantled and moved when needed.

Such innovations from people like Dominic are essential to improving the lives of those living in poverty around the world.
