[Kelvin Doe,] a young boy from Sierra Leone, has left the world without words as he keeps inventing things by gathering broken electronic parts and putting them together into a new form. 

He has already created batteries for his village, as well as managed to put together his very own FM radio transmitter. The list goes on and on…

DJ Focus. 15 years old. What an awesome kid.

The story of course reminds me of William Kamkwamba, who built a windmill as an electricity source for his family in Malawi and later wrote a book about it.
