Torbjørn Ludvigsen is a Swedish inventor whose company – Replicating Rapid Prototyper (RepRap) – is busy raising funds to develop the Hangprinter. This suspended 3D printer uses the walls and ceiling of a room as its “frame” and can be used to print furniture-sized objects in an entire room.

While cable-driven 3D printers already exist, this 3D printer is different. It uses a frameless 3-D printing system which is cheaper to assemble – a mere USD250. It uses an entire house as a 3D printer frame and all parts of the suspended 3D printer are mounted on a single moving unit.

The self-replicating machine is designed to manufacture a large fraction of its own parts.

Will RepRap revolutionize the construction of low-cost buildings for developing nations?

Will compost turn out to be the magic mineral for African agriculture?
Introducing phosphorous back in African soil is important as it helps plants in early life to build root systems. 80 per cent of phosphate reserves are controlled by five countries. Morocco has 75 per cent of the global reserves. After an 800 per cent price hike in 2008, phosphate rock has become costly. An alternative option is compost. Compost not only provides phosphorous and other nutrients but can also restore the soil
