WATCH: This College Inventor Wants To Help You Make Stuff Instead of Buying
Angelo Casimiro thinks of himself as a “tinker” and an inventor. The 21-year-old electronics and communications engineering student from De La Salle University-Manila has an account on TikTok where he posts DIY (do-it-yourself) tutorials on making anything from microphone pop filters, ring lights, phone camera dollies, even a scanner that turns old film negatives into digital images. And many, many more.
Casimiro has been attracting buzz as an inventor for years. In 2014, he invented footwear that generates electricity (and can help you charge your phone) when you walk. He also created a working BB-8 droid from the Star Wars films in 2016.
“I decided to post my DIY content on TikTok because TikTok is a rising platform and is a great way to share my DIY educational videos to everyone,” he says.
Casimiro also has a channel on YouTube called TechBuilder.
The idea, he says, is to encourage people to consumer less resources by making stuff from things they might already have lying around instead of buying new things.
