A few days back, YEN.com.gh shared the story of a young Ghanaian inventor, Frank Darko who had created a bicycle that was purposely built to be ridden on water.
In an exclusive report made by YEN.com.gh, the young inventor shared some videos of how his invention is supposed to be used.
The first video he shared with us captured his first test which he carried out on a water body beneath an overpass. As at the time of recording that video, he was more than halfway through with his creation which he had started building in August last year.
With the second video, the young inventor, believing in his finished work decided to test it out on the sea to prove to the world that his creation was built for its intended purpose.
In many pictures that the young man sent to YEN.com.gh, some people were seen taking turns to have a feel of the unique invention and requested to have him make one for him.
Speaking in a telephone conversation with YEN.com.gh, Frank Darko revealed that he wanted his invention to help the school children wore had to swim to be able to get to school.
He also had hopes of duplicating more of his bicycles for some hotels and leisure places for people to have fun and exercise at the same time.
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.
