Nigerian College Student SingleHandedly Builds “Touchless” Smartphone

OmejieA Nigerian college student, Omijie Emmanuel Osas, is one of the leading lights in Africa’s tech world. He “singlehandedly” built a “touchless” smartphone.

The student of the University of Benin in the Southern part of Nigeria built an innovative smartphone that can be operated completely by a finger 2cm above the screen. It 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.

Omijie Emmanuel is definitely defeating the stereotype. With a little push in the right direction, he and other young Africans like him will change the face of technology as we all know it now.
