"Living with Lions"
NAIROBI, KENYA, MARCH 7 2012: Maasai youth Richard Turere, 13, attachs his "Lion Lights" invention to the timber posts of a cattle kraal close to his home on the outskirts of Nairobi National Park, Kenya, March 7, 2013. Richard devised these lights when he was 11 years old and they are an effective local solution to lion attacks on Maasai livestock at night. "These lights are a small device which protects Maasai cows from lions," says Richard. "Lions fear moving lights so I have made a device that tricks lions into thinking that I am awake and walking around when I am actually sleeping in my bed." Richard has become a minor celebrity as a result of his invention, Brookhouse School, an exclusive private institution, has offered him a full scholarship and he has given a number of TED talks about his invention. Richard is now considering an electric fence design, but this time its aim is to keep people out.
