Design for the other 90%

The New York Times has a great piece on an exhibit of design solutions for people that live on less than $2 per day. My favorites are a non-electric refrigeration system, a bicycle add on to turn it into a bicycle truck, and a ceramic water filtration system. It made me think of not only what we have in the U.S., but also very hopeful of simple solutions to some of our world’s problems. Make sure to check out the video on New York Times.
