Last night our founder spoke at Pecha Kucha night in Dar es Salaam. Pecha Kucha is Japanese for ‘chit chat’ and is a unique presentation style in which speakers present 20 slides for 20 seconds each on any interesting topic. Pecha Kucha started in 2003 and is now in over 800 cities worldwide. The Dar es Salaam event has been running for about 4 years and this was the 9th edition.
Of course, Elizabeth (Beth) spoke about 3D printing! She shared examples of the amazing things that people are printing around the world…
- functioning car
- mobile phone cases
- tools and spare parts
- prosthetics & surgical implants
- functioning tissue and organs
- canal houses
- dresses & shoes
- jewellry & accessories
- International Space Station tools
- Airplane partitions and jet engines
- $100 laboratory microscopes
The audience was pleasantly surprised by what is possible with this awesome technology.
Thanks to the organizers for letting Elizabeth & Kuunda 3D participate! And kudos to all the other presenters as well 🙂
