In their innovative development strategy, the third world countries should escape the sheep-like behaviour by following the same pathway as the developed western countries. Because they don’t have the same historical, geopolitical and social factors. There's a lot of truth behind Bruce Lee's well-known quote: “Using no way as way; having no limitation as limitation” by using practical technique with flexibility and reliability instead of theoretical and rigid method. The Frugal Innovation is a good demonstration of this practical way with the ability to “do more with less” [1-2] by creating more business and social value while minimizing the use of diminishing resources such as water, energy and funding. Within this context, the aim of the VOLT valve, where VOLT is the abbreviation of “Valve Opening with Low Tech”, is to propose an autonomous, low tech, eco-efficiency and compact product. This innovation have five distinct aspects that can be resumed in two words, WLoG NoTS (Water, Low, Green, No Touch and Social Technology) which is reflecting a homophony with “ Have nots “ who need to meet their energy and water needs in a quick and smart way.
