Honeybee Network

If you're a really bright and clever person with great ideas, yet live in a remote part of the developing world, how can you make your contribution to the greater society? Perhaps by letting people find you.

An initiative in India called the Honeybee Network seeks to locate smart people with innovations and put them in touch with other villages who could use their ideas. Example of such clever folk inventions discovered through the network are a device for scaling coconut trees and a fully functioning robot.
