Terrorists pose challenge to innovators
We always advocated technology diffusion except two technologies- missiles and timer bombs. Reports say assembling these timer bombs has become a cottage industry, cost less than Rs 25/ to make and there is no shortage of buyers. With terror moving to streets, there is a pressing need for innovators to come with smart solutions that detect these bombs. TePP supported one innovator Biju Varkey to improve his low cost bomb disposal robot.
Innovators taking the challenge to develop low cost bomb detection and disposal gadgets can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for funding under TePP.
