“Your idea doesn’t have to be complicated to be useful.”
– Hashem Al Ghaili on the Hippo Water Roller
The Hippo Roller received an unexpected but marvelous gift for its 25th anniversary! Clearly inspired by its simplicity and usefulness, well known science communicator Hashem Al Ghaili created a video of the Hippo Roller and posted it on 15 May 2016.
Within one week this video had 33 million views, 250,000 likes, 433,000 shares and 6,000 comments. Wow!
Thank you Hashem and the Science Nature Page community for the lively discussion and sharing the Hippo Roller with millions around the world.
Prominent publications such as the New York Magazine, Tech Insider, UNILAD and INSIDER followed with more videos of the Hippo Roller. These videos together with that of Hashem have in total now been viewed more than 40 million times over the last 6 weeks.
Will 40 million+ views assist us to alleviate the daily struggle of many more women and children who collect water far from their home? This alone will be the real reason to celebrate.
