“A student project at Stanford University has led to the development of a low cost incubator powered by boiled water. Intended for premature babies born in the poor areas of the world, the $25 device is essentially a sleeping bag with a phase change material pouch that helps regulate the internal temperature of the child’s environment.” – Michael, Medgadget

Now this is something really cool I hope to get involved with in the future. It reminds me of the one-laptop-per-child initiative. I think what these students are doing is great and I only hope that they are in this for the cause it self and not the money. Keep it up 🙂
