Downsizing Industries Technology

I cite this SciDev article all the time so I might as well add it here.

Among several case studies the article describes an ingenious engineer who took the ‘fish meat deboning machine’ used by large fishing companies and downsized it for the local poor fisherman.

The device has benefitted not only the local fisherman by efficiently cleaning off their catch and thus allowing them to sell more meat, but also benefitted the environment by reducing the amount fresh meat geting thrown into the water.
