A polytechnic in Lagos has produced its first prototype of a drone. Lagos City authorities have said, if developed fully, the state could employ the drones for security surveillance.
A talented 17-year-old David Opateyibo heads up the development of a drone which authorities in Lagos hope to deploy for security surveillance. The drone, a high breed mix of existing drone components and locally fabricated material, seems to fly normally but David says there is a lot more room for improvement.
“Aside from using drones for aerial surveillance, you can also use them for aerial photography and videography, or for broadcasting, incidence control or pipeline and power line inspection. You can also use drones in agriculture, to analyze farm produce,” David said in an interview.

A 13 year-old Ukoma Michael from Nigeria is one of the youngest and best upcoming tech entrepreneurs in the world. He invented a battery-operated fan that will last for up to 19 hours. He calls them “Blue Wind Fans,” and they come in different shapes and sizes from table top to free standing. Once the fans are charged, they can run for up to 19 hours!
How he does it
Michael makes his fans from aluminum and wire, and uses old cartons for packaging. This makes them very affordable for low income families, but the fans are presentable and modern looking, blue with a high-tech appearance. As a young entrepreneur, Michael has more plans in his future; he wants to eventually manufactor not just fans, but also engine parts, and aircrafts.
A new trend in Africa
Michael represents a growing trend in countries like Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, and South Africa where schools are increasingly becoming dedicated to encouraging youths to develop exceptional solutions to the country’s problems.
Young tech entrepreneurs like Michael are not disappointing the schools or their communities as they develop innovative products that will not only improve lives, but also have huge potential for commercialization as Africa continues to develop.

The trailer for his “Only One” video game, which he previewed at the Yeezy Season 3 show in February, made its official debut at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles on Monday (Jun. 13).
Back in February, Mr. West explained the game’s inspiration. “The idea of the game is my mom traveling through the gates of heaven,” he said, referencing his late mother, Donda West. “I just wanna bring as much beauty to the world as possible.”
It’s unclear where “Only One” will land and its release date has yet to be announced.
Donda West died in 2007 after complications stemming from a plastic surgery procedure. She was 58.
FIFA 17 has finally been revealed and with it masses of changes to the game which we hope will translate to a far superior experience when game hits shops later this year.
We’d already learned that the game was transitioning to the Frostbite engine used by so many of EA’s games, but finally we can see the authentic true-to-life action thanks to a new gameplay trailer and several screenshots.
There’s also been plenty of gameplay advances, including everything from new run types, more skill moves, new tackles and also 3x the amount of animations previously available in FIFA 16 – to name but a few of the new features.
However the biggest overhaul will be felt in the games set pieces, which now includes a new system for taking corners which removes the hit and hope feel of the last game.
In addition, Penalties have been overhauled, allowing you to run at the ball from different angles and adjust the speed at which you run in.
But if that wasn’t enough you can also move along the touchline when taking a throw in and even fake a throw to fool your opponent.
However, the biggest change to the game undoubtedly comes from the new career mode called ‘The Journey’.
Within this new addition to FIFA 17, you’ll play as Alex Hunter, an up and coming new star in the Premier League who comes from a long line of footballers.
The immersive experience, takes players for the first time to the back of stadia and into the dressing rooms, tunnels and even Alex Hunters childhood home.
Essentially the game lets you pick a club from Prem and start your career. You’ll be given objectives in the match and you can see your rating during your match to show how well you’re playing.
If you use a phone with Android operating system, you should think twice before visiting any fishy-looking websites. Even if they promise just cute kitten videos.
Some 275 million Android phones are vulnerable to an attack that uses infected online video files to spy on the devices, according to a research paper by cyber security firm NorthBit.
The attack works on Android versions 2.2 to 4.0 and 5.0 to 5.1.
The attack works on Android versions 2.2 to 4.0 and 5.0 to 5.1, according to thehackernews.com.
As seen in the video NorthBit provided, all the user has to do is visit a website that contains an infected video file, although the victim “has to linger for a time in the attack web page,” the paper reads. That time can be up to two minutes, but it can also be just a few seconds.
Chelsea’s woes continue at Goodison Park, as a Steven Naismith hat-trick does the damage for Everton. Everton were superb from back to front – Stones and Jagielka dealt with a raging Costa with ease, and the Chelsea midfield rarely wrested control from Barry and McCarthy. Jose Mourinho’s side are a mess, not that he’ll admit it to the TV cameras here, and they don’t have much time to find a solution before the pacesetters disappear over the horizon
