TED: Anil Gupta: India’s hidden hotbeds of invention in the slums

Inspiring talk about the Long Tail… how small innovations in micro-economies change lives in a big way.  Poor people are very frugal and are always looking for a cost-effective way to improve their lives – with practical, low-cost inventions. Check out the 70 year-old Indian who invented an amphibious bike so that he could cross the lake to his lady love… Lovely!

TED: Anil Gupta is on the hunt for the developing world’s unsung inventors — indigenous entrepreneurs whose ingenuity, hidden by poverty, could change many people’s lives. He shows how the Honey Bee Network helps them build the connections they need — and gain the recognition they deserve.
