Dapo recently returned from the Maker Faire in Accra, and has made some great contacts while there. We are starting to form a valuable network of people in Ghana, which will be extremely helpful when Rebecca and I are in Tamale in September.
Until then, we are working out of a prototyping lab at MIT to create something more robust for testing, and working out some logistics for the trip.
As usual we have all been pretty busy, but steadily making progress and preparing for testing!
