South African twins Matlhogonolo and Masego Mphahlele have placed the country on the global stage with their innovation
They are the Red Bull Basement South Africa representatives who showcased their innovative digital x-ray glasses at the global workshop last week.
The twin sisters from Hammanskraal managed to beat 125 other applicants in this year’s local application phase of Red Bull Basement.
They revealed to the media that this vision of being innovative started in 2019 when they were doing their matric.
One of their friends got hurt during sports and when they took her to the hospital they were forced to wait for hours just to get an x-ray scan.
This is when the twins started coming up with different ideas about portable x-ray devices. Thus they decided to make glasses because they are easy to carry around.
