Young Inventors Tackle Issues with Tech at Samsung Solve4Tomorrow Event

Samsung Electronics Maghreb Arab and nonprofit Enactus Morocco held the second edition of their Samsung Solve4Tomorrow campaign from September 16 to 18. The weekend “boot camp” saw nine teams of young Moroccan entrepreneurs face off in the spirit of altruistic competition, working together to develop solutions to improve their communities’ quality of life.

The fundamental philosophy behind the Solve for Tomorrow program is that there is a solution to every problem. By nurturing the ideas of young visionaries such as these, we provide them with the power to create a better tomorrow.

The five innovative ideas selected to advance to the competition’s final round were:

  • PillMinder: A mobile application that organizes patients’ medication-taking process, and can help them coordinate regular check-ups and connect with doctors and pharmacists in the event of emergencies.
  • MedTrainIn: A project that presents an affordable means for surgeons to share their insights with medical students via virtual reality technology.
  • Atticool: A sustainable-food project comprising a small clay refrigerator connected to an adapted solar-energy system that allows it to reach the right temperature to properly preserve food.
  • Ma Santé: A healthcare solution consisting of a control box that allows users to measure various health data and a mobile application that provides them with daily analysis of their physical state.
  • Eco-dome: A system based on the Arduino programming platform that, once installed, provides control over all aspects of energy consumption in a user’s home.
