Kodjo Afate Gnikou has imagination, talent and ambition.
Using rails and belts from old scanners, the case of a discarded desktop computer and even bits of a diskette drive, he has created what is believed to be the first 3-D printer made from e-waste.
It has taken him several months to put together his experimental device. Lifting designs off a computer, the 3-D printer produces physical objects. He shows us by “printing” a small round container.
