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.
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.
