    This thread is dedicated to showcasing the technology leaps made by Africa countries. I have scowered the internet for all African inventions except those made by white settlers in Africa. Only the inventions I could find have been posted, so there might be more out there. Some of them are old news, however, they might have gone unnoticed by many of us. Though these technological leaps may pale in comparism to those of Western nations, they show the some of our misguided need to "invade africa and civilize it". With adequate funding, we could see these developments becoming more significant.

    I post the first one:

    Unbelievable. Sometimes, the simplest of African resources such as Clay can produce cost effective productes such as a refridgerator!!
