The sowing machine is attached to your leg and is spreading the seeds while you walk. The design was done by Lorien Duchamps, Industrial Product Design student at Howest University and the prototype was build in collaboration with the technical secondary school Koninklijk Atheneum Oudenaarde.
And how they loved the end-result! Congratulations to all students involved!
Because of the government measurements concerning covid-19, MyMachine Flanders & Brussels is unfortunately unable to organise a Grand Exhibition showing all elaborated dream machines. But luckily the schools and students were able to finish their work. So the working prototype could be delivered today. In stead of going to the exhibition, the finished working prototype goes directly to the primary school where the child-inventors can test the final result.
A big thank you to all students and educators involved for being so persistent and resilient in these peculiar times! Well done!
