A few months ago, YEN.com.gh had an encounter with a young Ghanaian inventor, Frank Darko, who had created a bicycle that could move on water.
He revealed that his invention started in August last year and with a lot of effort and hard work, he managed to finish his creation and tested it in a shallow dam in his area.
Now, the young inventor believing in his finished work, decided to test it out on the sea to prove to the world that his invention had come to stay.
In the many pictures that the young man sent to YEN.com.gh, some people were seen taking turns to experience the unique invention.
Speaking in a telephone conversation with YEN.com.gh, Frank Darko revealed that he wanted his invention to help the school children who had to swim to school, find an easier path to their classes.
This fact notwithstanding, he revealed that many individuals have also requested to have him make a copy of the bicycle for them.
He said he wanted to contribute to the development of Ghana with his invention. He however called on stakeholders and benevolent bodies to invest in his breakthrough invention so as to make the lives of many Ghanaians easy.
Frank Darko resides in Takoradi in the Western Region. He was a final year student at the Takoradi Technical University formerly known as Takoradi Polytechnic pursing a course in Graphic Design but deferred in his final year in school due to personal reasons.
The young inventor revealed that the special bicycle is his first invention but he had drawn up plans for many more inventions.
Frank Darko reached out to YEN.com.gh earlier and shared his amazing story and remarkable invention with us. This time, he took out his invention to do a daring test and also shared images with us.
He revealed that his creativity came about as a result of his matchless love for science, technology and the urge to solve day-to-day problems faced by people living in the community.
