Arvind Gupta makes trash into toys

Friday, April 29, 2011

Must watch! Arvind Gupta is a charming Mr. Wizard. And highly quotable:

“The slogan of the 70’s was Go to the People.  Live with them. Start with what they know. Build on what they have.”

“The best thing you can do to a toy is break it.”

“Many of our folk toys have great science principles.”

AfriGadget has a lovely post up for the new year featuring photos by photographer TMS Ruge of Project Diaspora.  This is a car made out of an empty oil bottle with wheels cut from old flip flops.
