Ghanaian builds water bicycle – Frank Darko was a final year student at the Takoradi Technical University, Ghana, pursuing a course in Graphic Design before he deferred the course due to some personal reasons.
The young man who resides in Takoradi in the Western Religion has made a name for himself after he designed a bicycle that rides on the water. Yes, a bicycle which on its wheels, has paddles that cause it to float when on water.
The inventor Frank Darko reveals that the special bicycle is his first invention and that it was built in four months as he started working on it since August this year.
He shared this and more when he interacted with YEN.com. According to the young inventor, the bicycle built to move on water is just one of the many things he hopes to build in future.
Frank is a lover of science and this same motive inspired him to venture into the business of solving common day-to-day challenges faced by people in the society.
