TIS Weekly (#40): Medical Devices: If You Cannot Afford It, Make It

[March 13th, 2016]

As president Obama was addressing the global tech community from the United States, Europe was getting a little closer to finding a way to deal with the refugee problem. For us at TIS HQ, this once again proves that innovation is everywhere and impacts the lives of all people in the world!

Obama speaks

This week, the biggest technology (and film & music) festival kicked of in Austin, Texas and for the first time ever, the sitting president of the United States was present and gave a talk.

If you cannot afford it, make it!

As you know we are focusing on health this month. José Gómez Márquez brings the learnings from DIY and the maker movement to the medical world in a very inspiring talk. If you cannot afford it, make it!

Innovation in many ways

Last month, we dedicated our resources to refugees by finding out what kind of innovations they use and what are available in their world and situation. From the best videos we made an impressive and beautiful short film with many examples of innovation for as many problems.

OK that’s it for this week, friends of innovation. Keep on submitting, keep on voting, keep on innovating. Questions? Remarks? Ideas? hello@tis.tv is the address! From TIS with love, Erwin Blom.
