Need some inspiration? Meet 15-year-old Kelvin Doe from Sierra Leone.

What a great story: Kelvin Doe, a teenage engineering whiz in Sierra Leone, has taught himself how to reverse engineer electronics by studying items in garbage heaps.  Very cool stuff, so just watch the video.

Thanks to visual artist Hank Willis Thomas for the heads up.
