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.
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.
Anyone who has ever had a sick child knows what a hassle it can be to take someone’s temperature using the traditional method slipping a thermometer under her tongue, getting her to sit still for minutes at a time and hoping that whatever reading you get is accurate. That’s why, in recent years, many brands have started to make no-touch thermometers, which use infrared technology to measure core body temperature quickly and precisely. But one model stands out both for its design and its efficacy: Arc’s InstaTemp and its more precise, clinical version, InstaTemp MD, which was recently approved by the FDA. Once the device is placed roughly an inch from a patient’s forehead, it spits out a temperature in 2.5 seconds coded red, yellow or green, depending on the reading. “If you can take a temperature this way, why would you do it any other way?” says Irwin Gross, CEO of Arc, which is marketing the InstaTemp devices to consumers and health care professionals alike. “We think this is the way all temperatures will be taken in the future.”
