 Here comes another intriguing one!
“Emergency blood autotransfusion system” (EAT-SET); Africans are really paving the way in science and technology. The device (system) is a low-cost blood transfusion system which has the ability to recover blood from a patient’s internal bleeding organs and then re-infuses the blood back into the patient’s blood system at the same time preventing blood loss. The most interesting part of this is that it has been designed to transfuse blood in a safe and non-infectious manner. It also works without electricity.)


Rtd. Brig. Gen. (Dr.) Oviemo’s invention, the EAT-SET is a simpler, inexpensive and effective compared to the conventional Auto-transfusion technique being used in the industrialized nations.

Meet the two Nigerian brothers who are Polymer and Textile Engineering Undergraduates of the Nnamdi Azikwe University, Awka, have invented the machine to support the Proudly Nigerian initiative and to strengthen the country’s agricultural sector through technology. The device, Oganihu C², named after the two brothers, Ubaka Chukwuebuka Patrick and Atikpo Chukwuebuka Patrick. According to the brothers, they were inspired to create the machine when the governor of Anambra state said he washed bitter leaves with washing machine in Europe in 2015. This came to them as a challenge and decided to come up with the idea of a machine that washes vegetables. The machine, Oganihu C² would help in the easy processing of the foods and getting them ready for consumption.

Ibrahim Adekunle, a Nigerian, 26 years of age with only an O’ level qualification, has invented a Tricycle with several coaches popularly known as “Keke Marwa”, but this Tricycle is stretched to contain more seats. It carries about 10-13 people. Ibrahim built and designed it himself. The work was one of the featured invention on the BBC coverage of the Maker Faire Africa, an exhibition which took place in Lagos, Nigeria. This young man can be encouraged to do even more challenging feats in the future.

A Nigerian scientist and Silicon Valley-based inventor & CEO of Koniku Kore Inc., Mr. Oshiorenoya Agabi has built a device called “KONIKU KORE”. He said; this device can be used to detect the smell of explosives and cancer cells.

Agabi says ‘the Koniku kore device is the “world first” that is able to breathe in and smell air, being the reason it could detect volatile chemicals and even illness such as cancer. The system is made from a mixture of living neurons from mice stem cells fused into a silicon chip, with sensors that can detect and recognize smell.’ However, the 38-year old inventor who grew up in Lagos had a Bachelors’ degree in Theoretical Physics in Lagos, Nigeria before taking an interest in Neuroscience and Bio-Engineering for his PhD in London. He envisages a future where such device can be discreetly used at various points in airports, eliminating the unnecessary queues to get through airport security. In addition, it can also serve for bomb detection and illness by sensing diseases in the air molecules that a patient gives off. ‘Looking at technology with the goal of fixing urgent world problems, one of the problems that plagues us right now is security, which the koniku kore device could be solving.’

In a world in which technology determines the state of our lives and living, everything you could ever only conceive in your imagination now becomes a reality; human efforts will be of little or no use in the near future.

The future of Africa in technology can only be brought to reality by supporting young inventors, like Chukwuemeka Ekwealua Caleb & Lambert Prince Maduabuchi, from Ikedurulga of Imo State (Nigeria) students of Mechanical Engineering from Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Imo State, Nigeria. The duo built and designed a Jet by name, SR-71 Black Bird Spy Jet. Meeting one of the young inventors, “this is an ambition I had always nursed from childhood, with the hope that someday I will design one”, Caleb said.

With this there is a possibility in the future for African technology and in Africa as a whole; if we support young inventors, Africa will be better through technology.
