”Nigeria is blessed with intellectual resources, but we’ve been mentally conditioned to tapping the resources under our feet rather than those between our ears. Well, times have changed, and believe it or not, within the next four years, a Nigerian made phone will dominate… the global phone market and shock the world. We’re hungry, dogged, and strongly determined to make the memory ours, while others are still dreaming.”
The statement above is by a final year University of Benin student, Omijie Emmanuel Osas, who invented an amazing technology.
An inspiring video demo which he released online shows how a phone can be operated completely by a finger 2cm above the screen. The phone was built with locally available parts. “I’m working hard on adding lots of cool features and improvements in the lab, this is just a tip of the mountain of innovations,” he said.
