“W.Afate”, What is it the name ?

“W.Afate”, What is it the name ? | My Africa is... | Scoop.it

"It is said that the 3D printer will have upon our society as impact as the Steam invention . A young togolese tech community is may be writing the most beautiful pages full of hopes and promises of this new technological time. The first  “Made in Africa!” and with e-waste 3D Printer is not only an international success story but, with several original programs already driven (#3DprinTogo Conferences; 3Dprint- Cyber- Cafes ; 3DprintEducative, W.Afate to Mars, etc), is now at the heart of what  seems a real vision of development for Africa (the #LowHithTech concept) and ideally embodies the potential of innovation of this continent. We must also emphasize the fact that this project is intimately linked to the ethics of Technology Democracy governing  particular places like  WoeLab and that it would not have been possible without the collective intelligence, logistical and human resources of the community to which belongs to the inventor. W.Afate is a magnificent figure of the power of co-creation spaces and one of the symbols of the contemporary 'Collaborative' and 'Commons' movement."
