Welcome to the bleeding-edge of African innovation, VR, 3D printing, AI, and the rest. The continent isn’t just driving technological change for Africa, but for the world.

3D printing – 3D printing is gaining traction in Africa. In 2013, Woe Labs tech hub in Togo made the first “Made in Africa” 3D printer from e-waste. They want to use the 3D printer to revolutionize Africa.

They’re starting by putting a machine in every school within 1 km of the workshop. Buni Hub is another tech center, based in Tanzania, that is building 3D printers.
