Kodjo Afate Gnikou and his $100 US 3D printer W.AFATE, which is largely made of e-waste, in Lome, Togo on May 31, 2013. Gnikou dreams of sending a larger version to Mars to print tools and homes for future colonizations. "They all say it is merely a dream and it will never happen," says Gnikou, pointing out that there are already robots on Mars. "I really want my 3D printer to be the first on Mars so people can say it was an African who had the idea to put a 3D printer on Mars."
