Two young Kenyans who’ve created a robotic arm powered by brain signals tell BBC Newsday they want to make life easier for people living with disabilities.
David Gathua and Moses Kinua are passionate about electronic devices, and their prosthetic arm is made of discarded computer parts and recycled wood.
“Almost one million people live without an upper limb or a lower limb so we thought of how can we help them locomote in their daily activities,” Mr Kinua said.
“I was inspired by movies like Robocop… My uncle was a radio and TV repairman,” Mr Gathua said.
The pair use skills learnt from a high school science group and books.
