We people never think about farmers and the agricultural process. With advance technology in the developed countries, it’s very easy to store the mass cultivation, fruits, vegetables for many days without getting spoiled, that’s not the case in rural areas, especially in developing countries like Africa. For farmer it’s very hard to keep their produced goods fresh, before reaching the market the fruits and vegetables are getting spoiled, thus 45% of the produced goods are going wastage.
To solve this issue the Belgian product developer Arne Pauwels created Wakati one thanks to 3d printing technology. The Wakati One is an inventive innovation that builds the time span of usability of leafy foods for small holder agriculturists. With a little sun powered board of only 3 Watts, Wakati makes a cleaned micro atmosphere that significantly builds the time frame of realistic usability of yields.
It is more affordable than a fridge, where farmers can store up to 200 kg of goods. Arne planned to make it as affordable as it can be, since he wants to deliver much cheaper Wakati One to farmers as they can’t spend too much to get one. The only way to get the Wakati affordable is to create via 3d printing. 3d printing technology not just well-known for its quality, it is much known for cost effectiveness.
Arne decided to approach Materialise, who produced the molds for blowers, (a ducted centrifugal fan, especially when used in a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning system) using (SLA) technology. Hope Wakati One solve the issue for millions of farmers all over the world and boost them to produce more healthy foods for a healthy human life.
