Innovations for rural areas of developing world need to be very sophisticated technologically.

Too often the innovations for rural areas are supposed to be tinkered and locally devised. I think innovation process whether in producing a new type of light for rural huts or for producing aircraft should follow the same method and processes. In fact innovations for rural areas will be more sophisticated since the resources are less and hence the end product has to be very efficient.

Some examples of such a process can be found here. http://www.nariphaltan.org/roi.pdf

Readers are invited to give examples of high tech innovations for rural areas for others to debate and follow.
