It’s Thursday and the Frugal Innovation Lab is getting some love from the New Scientist!
In the most recent issue of New Scientist, Sara Reardon wrote an article, DIY Diagnostics for the World’s Poor, highlighting the Frugal Innovation Lab, along with MIT’s Media Labs and Stanford University efforts to combat poverty using frugal innovation. It is a great article, and our own Radha Basu talks about the importance of mobile technology and frugal innovation.
