According to the studies carried out by Ugandan inventors, Koburongo a Telecoms Engineering graduate, from University of Makerere and four others came up with a biomedical Smart Jacket known as Mama Ope (Mother Hope).
The Jacket detects and analyses pneumonia symptoms in children, with the aim of providing more accurate diagnosis on the extent to which the disease has affected the lungs. It also enables tracking the process of the disease. After displaying the result, the app goes on to advise on the appropriate action for instance, if the disease is severe, it advises the user to reach out to the nearest referral hospital.
According to the inventors, the jacket has the ability to detect pneumonia up to three times faster than a doctor can and reduces human error.
Looking at Nigeria as a whole, one can say we shouldn’t be lagging behind in Technology Advancement. Meeting a young Nigerian; Wisdom Ibeauchi Eze by name, who Manufactures Cars from scrap metals, this shows that Nigeria indeed is filled with great potential and rare talents.
Technology they say “is a word that describes something that doesn’t work yet, but some day it will work”. Therefore potentials like this should be supported and encouraged for the benefit of our country and Africa at large . Let’s support talent and better the lots of our country.
Nike, has brought the self-lacing shoe dream to a reality. When wearers press a button near the tongue, the Hyper Adapt 1.0s automatically tighten and loosen around their foot. And although this technology may sound frivolous, it’s not just for kicks, it simplified shoe fastening could give athletes an edge during competition,
Since he was a child, Simon Morris has been obsessed with making objects float in midair. At one point he even managed to turn a skateboard into a hoverboard, Now he is applying that same passion to Flyte, a lightbulb that relies on electromagnetism to levitate and spin, and on resonant inductive coupling a technical term for wireless power transmission to shine.
Imagine, you are gushing blood. Nothing seems to make it stop. Then you apply a gel to your wound, and the bleeding stops within seconds. You’re healed in minutes. This is the premise of VetiGel, an algae-based polymer created by Joe Landolina a 22 year-old who invented the product when he was just 17. Landolina is now the cofounder and CEO of Suneris, a biotech company that manufactures the gel. Suneris announced last week that it would begin to ship VetiGel to veterinarians later this summer. Humans won’t be far behind. When injected into a wound site, the gel can form a clot within 12 seconds and permanently heal the wound within minutes, Landolina says.”The fastest piece of equipment we have measures every 12 seconds, “So we know that it happens in less than 12 seconds.” The science that makes this all possible is surprisingly basic.
