I used to know him. From what I can remember, I'm not surprised he is an *acclaimed* designer. Indeed a rare Nepali.

Its definitely good news for Nepal and the budding Milan Karki. I saw this piece a while ago on slashdot.org and could not decide of anything after reading a few comments. I hope this is real and that he is making Nepal truly proud. At least one thing is certain - he has generated a deluge of media exposure and that is wonderful.

I am a science student, but I really don't have any idea of the design behind Milan Karki's product. 23 Sterling pounds is certainly not kids' play (as least in my day) and human hair certainly does not seem to be a major component in the device. Moreoever, I am amazed how human hair works as a conductor. I must be getting really old.. ;) Anyway, kudos to the budding scientist.
