13-Year-Old Nigerian Boy Builds Fan That Last Up To 19 Hours Without Electricity

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.

Kanye West Only One Video Game

Kanye West is taking over the gaming world.

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: New gameplay trailer, images and more revealed at EA Play

Fifa 17 Gameplay Trailer

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.

275 Million Android Phones Exposed to New Hack, Security Firm Says

Android-mobiles-2

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.

Video : Everton vs Chelsea 3-1 Highlights and Goals (Premier League 2015)

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

Shock-resistant Samsung Galaxy S5 Active now available through AT&T

2014-05-30-image-5

 

Water-resistance was a welcomed addition on Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 smartphone but for the most active among us, they could have taken it a step further. Fortunately, AT&T is now offering a more rugged version of the flagship for that demographic aptly named the Galaxy S5 Active.

Internally, the phone is virtually identical to the original with a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC operating at 2.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel camera and so on.

In addition to the IP67 water- and dustproof rating, the Active meets US Mil-STD 810G for shock, temperature, humidity, rain and altitude.

As you’d expect with the addition of shock protection, the chassis is a bit beefier. There’s also a new button on the side of the phone, something Samsung calls the convenience key. This button is used to give you quick access to the handset’s apps relating to outdoor activity.

There are some sacrifices that had to be made, however. Most notably, the built-in fingerprint sensor has been eliminated. That may not be too big of a hit considering how stubborn it is to operate. In our recent review, we found the feature to be both frustrating and cumbersome.

The Galaxy S5 Active is available in camo green, titanium gray and ruby red as of writing through AT&T. Pricing is set at $199 with a standard two-year service agreement or $714.99 sans contract. The phone is also eligible for AT&T’s Next installment plan over the course of 12 or 18 months. If you go that route, expect to pay an additional $35.75 each month with the 12-month plan or $27.50 every billing cycle if stretched over 18 months.

Here’s how users can exercise their ‘Right To Be Forgotten’ on Google

2014-05-21-2

 

The Court of Justice of the European Union ruled a few weeks ago that Europeans have the right to be forgotten online of they so choose. Google has been forced to allow individuals to have certain links and content removed from search results and will begin doing so starting today.

Individuals who want content removed need to fill out an online form (seen in part below), at which point Google will then decide if the particular request is worthy of action or not. The particular form in question is now publicly available online and appears much the way you might expect.

Google is not just adhering to every request though, the company said it will not be removing important data the public has a right to know, but rather only personal info that may be detrimental to an individuals privacy or life situation. For example, public figures looking to get embarrassing information removed will likely be disappointed, according to Page, Google has the right to reject the request if the information in question is in the public interest.

Google already has similar takedown infrastructure in place when it comes to child pornography and copyright infringement, so according to Google co-founder Larry Page, this won’t be a new thing for the search giant. The company is said to be putting together a group of third party experts that will hold hearings regarding Google’s new privacy responsibilities in Europe.
