Apple Sells Gaming Robots Built By Nigerian

Adekunle, centre, with his Reach Robotics mates
Apple Stores in the United States and United Kingdom have begun the sale of gaming robots, MekaMons, built by a Nigerian-British, Silas Adekunle.

Adekunle’s company, Reach Robotics struck the deal with Apple recently.

The product with a price tag of $299.95 went on sale from 16 November in the shops and online. The robots can be operated with an iPhone and other smartphones.

Reach Robotics, an augmented reality gaming company creates robots for both fun and STEM education.

Adekunle, who was born in Nigeria moved to the UK when he was 11 years old.

He is an engineer who graduated with First Class Honours from the University of the West of England in Bristol, with a Bachelor of Science in robotics technology. He previously worked at GE Aviation and Infineon.


“We’ve created an entirely new video gaming platform,” said Adekunle in a press release, published by Black Enterprise.

“MekaMon straddles both the real and virtual worlds while taking the gaming experience beyond a player’s screen and turning their sitting room into a limitless robotic battle zone. MekaMon represents a quantum leap forward in the leveraging of augmented reality. Players can whip out their iPhone to battle their multi-functional, connected battlebots in the physical and virtual worlds at the same time.”

MekaMons are four-legged robots that players can control via a smartphone using a companion app for augemented reality gameplay.

Multiple players can have their MekaMons battle each another. Each robot weighs a little over two pounds with dimensions of 11.8 by 11.8 by 5.9 inches.

MekaMons can connect to each other via infrared signals and Bluetooth, allowing for co-op gaming.

The robots are powered by a rechargeable battery that provides up to an hour of gameplay. They are compatible with the iPhone, using the smartphone’s camera and infrared tracking capability for precise navigation.

Adekunle’s company, founded in 2013 is based at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL) Technology Incubator. His colleagues include Chris Beck who had been working as a roboticist in the BRL.

The company, according to southwestbusiness.co.uk has experienced fast growth in the past few months and the firm is moving out of its offices at Future Space in Bristol.

The company, which has taken space for its 29 members of staff at Bristol Business Park, has secured $9.5m (£7.1m) of investment funding from organisations which, says Adekunle, could “see the potential for what we were developing”.

Adekunle said: “When I was a student at UWE Bristol I spent some time going into schools to help inspire young people and it struck me that there was a huge untapped market for a consumer robot with a difference.

“We used to go in and explain simple robotics to try to inspire the young roboticists and engineers of the future and this experience set me off thinking about designing gaming robots.”


Reach Robotics is anticipating fast future growth and is looking to target the UK and US market in the lead up to Christmas.

Adekunle added: “This is an exciting time for our company as now after years of development work we are finally able to bring Mekamon to customers across the UK and US and with plans to go global.

“UWE Bristol has given us an amazing start and we are so grateful for their support.”

Finger Prints (Biometrics) To Replace ATM Pin Codes Soon - CBN

“That means if you want to transact with your ATM, you will need to use your biometrics. There is no way you can give your finger to a third party. If that is enabling, it will make our system to be more secure and make all our transactions to be validated.


....................

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) says biometrics will soon be used for transactions on the automated teller machine (ATM).

Pin codes are currently being used.

Dipo Fatokun, chairman, Nigeria Electronic Fraud Forum (NeFF) and CBN director of banking and payment system, made this statement at 2017 annual retreat of the Nigeria Electronic Fraud Forum (NeFF) in Ibadan during the weekend.

You a e

Fatokun said the introduction of biometrics would help in the fight against electronic fraud.

He said sharing ATM pin codes ‎with a third party is against the policy of banking sector but could not be avoided in some circumstances especially in situations where the account owner is not literate or incapacitated.

“Your pin and account details are not supposed to be disclosed to third person but as you rightly said, we have some people who are not literate or incapacitated and that makes them to disclosing their details to third party,” he said.

“What we are canvassing is that in a time soon to come, with the BVN in place, biometrics will be used for transactions on ATM.


“That means if you want to transact with your ATM, you will need to use your biometrics. There is no way you can give your finger to a third party. If that is enabling, it will make our system to be more secure and make all our transactions to be validated.

“But biometric electronic devices are very expensive because of the technologies involved but I am sure, we shall get there soon.”

Robert Mugabe Finally Resigns After Decades In Power


Robert Mugabe has finally resigned as Zimbabwe’s president on Tuesday, shortly after parliament began an impeachment process to end his nearly four decades of rule.

The 93-year old clung on for a week after an army takeover and expulsion from his own ruling ZANU-PF party, which also told him to leave power.

Wild celebrations broke out at a joint sitting of parliament when Speaker Jacob Mudenda announced Mugabe’s resignation and suspended the impeachment procedure.


The origin of Mugabe’s sudden downfall lies in rivalry between members of Zimbabwe’s ruling elite over who will succeed him, rather than popular protests against his rule.

The army seized power after Mugabe sacked ZANU-PF’s favourite to succeed him, Emmerson Mnangagwa, to smooth a path to the presidency for his wife Grace, 52, known to her critics as “Gucci Grace” for her reputed fondness for luxury shopping.

Mnangagwa, a former security chief known as The Crocodile, is expected to take over as president.

The Danger of the Moment By Okey Nwande


Okey Nwande is a prolific writer who exposes ills of the society through his well articulated articles with the aim of correcting them.

Here is another beautiful masterpiece titled 'Danger of the Moment'

................

Euphoric excessiveness of youthful expressions, as I recently conjured, is enshrined in the spirit of 'the moment' The moment is somewhat a myopic consciousness that ride off in one's mind the need for longevity and preservative rationality. 


Like the Biblical paradigm, the farmer in his deepest content of the moment told his heart to rest unperturbed, but little did he know that his maker (the master of his past, present and the future) was descending to upturn the clock of his life. Such is the drama of many people we know, or may not had heard of, whose life's thrust weighed heavily on 'the moment'. If only we're aware that the first ideas that tickle our mind amidst human plights are often not the way forward, would we know that 'the moment' is intricate and delicate; because often we are tempted to react 'quickly' which may not be 'sensibly', in order to save the moment.

 Fast race, you may think, sometimes is the sublime, nevertheless, in step-wise life itself was made - mark this!

That law of the universe should be a recall to orderliness in times of situational turmoil. The decisions we make or choices we take at every moment that presents itself to us would ultimately have green (long-lastiing) effect in our life. And that is why our RESPONSE upon a mere portage offered to us at the famished hour should be taken constructively. 

Fastest approach to a situation isn't necessarily a rational step towards it. Solution to our challenges or life's circumstances isn't most times potent in the ORGASM of the moment. "Let thy spirit be breast into the future that you would see what is good or not to uphold today."

It's in the spirit of the moment that a sex addict, in the dimmest cage of that momentary orgasm losses the five senses of humanity and lays down the secrets of his life.

Be Careful!

It's in that same act of gladdening one's moment that one is easily drugged into unhealthy actions that most times are solaced in remorse and repentance, but the future would reveal to us that hardly would repentance revert the damages made.

Youthful stage is the most complex stage of life, which I concur is hardened with the dangers of the moment; hence should be treaded with utmost caution.


Let thy childhood be the seed of thy youth, and let thy youth bear the fruit of thy old age. What would you say then when we assemble at the table of life's judgment? "I'm content that I lived a life worth living." Would that be your stand?

I'm a youth saddened with the same youthful turbulences, and that is why I care.

6-Foot-2 Woman, 23, Told She Was 'Too Tall' And 'Too Curvy' To Ever Become A Model, Finally Breaks Into The Industry


23-year-old Taylor Rhoden, a former student nurse from Los Angeles who was told she was 'too tall' and 'too curvy' to ever become a model in the fashion industry, has finally won a contract with a lingerie brand, Curvy Kate.

Curvy Kate ran an open casting call to pick its next model, and Taylor, who gave up nursing and moved to LA to pursue her modeling dreams, qualified into the modeling competition, dubbed 'Star In A Bra'.

After the live auditions, Taylor was voted by the public as the next lingerie model out of almost 1,000 competitors.


According to reports, Taylor, a size 12 who had been repeatedly told she would never be a model because of her body also earned a modeling contract with the esteemed True Model Management agency, based in New York.

Speaking after becoming the new face of underwear label Curvy Kate, Taylor said:


"I've been turned away from many agencies due to my height. I've always been told that I'm "too tall". Although I thought my height and look was beautiful and unique, I felt like the agencies never saw that,' Taylor said.

"It's because of this that I entered Star in a Bra, in the wider modelling industry I am yet to see women that look like me, not only am I tall, I'm also plus size and I'm black, African-American, so I would really like to see someone that resembles me for once in the spotlight."

At first, Taylor said she 'literally could not believe' she had won the competition.

"It felt so surreal because I've been working so hard at turning my modelling dreams into my reality for so long and finally everything was coming to fruition",  she said.

"Through winning I'm hoping to bring a new look to Curvy Kate. I am not the traditional curve model, and I think that's always a plus. I'm hoping that by adding me to the family, a different target population of women will also feel included: women of color and taller women

"This is an opportunity for me to inspire women all over the world to love the skin they're in"

What President Buhari Said In Abakaliki (FULL AND DETAILED SPEECH)


There is no part of Nigeria where you will not find Igbo entrepreneurs, both men and women, contributing to the development of their adopted communities.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI SPEECH TODAY IN ABAKALIKI:

PROTOCOLS:

I am delighted to be in Abakiliki today to interact with the good people of this State and indeed, the South East (Ndigbo) region as a whole.

2. I want to express my gratitude to Ndi Ebonyi for their hospitality and warm reception since our arrival in Abakiliki a few hours ago.

3. In the last few hours, I have commissioned some landmark projects and laid the foundation stones for the Ebonyi City Mall and a flyover bridge projects. I commend His Excellency, Governor David Umahi for his vision and commitment to the development of his State.

4. In the course of my visit, I also had the honour and privilege of unveiling the statue of a great Nigerian, Sir Akanu Ibiam, whose notable records of humanitarianism, advocacy of free primary education and rural development, will continue to be an inspiration to all.

5. I am also grateful to the people of Ebonyi as well as the South East traditional rulers, who today, bestowed on me traditional titles. To the Ndi Ebonyi, I am ENYIOMA 1 (Good Friend) and to the South East, I am OCHIOHA OF NDIGBO. I thank you for this honour and kind gesture.

6. My presence here today is a demonstration of our strong belief in the unity of Nigeria. As the most populous country in Africa, with over 300 ethnic groups, our diversity is almost unique among nations.

7. The people of the South East are known for their ingenuity, industrial and commercial talent. There is no part of Nigeria where you will not find Igbo entrepreneurs, both men and women, contributing to the development of their adopted communities.

8. So I am asking you all not to buy into the senseless propaganda on secession. Igbo is Nigeria and Nigeria is Igbo. Both are inseparable.

9. We must therefore continue to commit ourselves to the development of Nigeria. A Nigeria where we sustain our national unity without compromising on our cultural identities. A Nigeria where the aspirations of its people is guaranteed without prejudice to tribe or religion. A Nigeria, where we can sleep at night knowing that tomorrow will be better than today.

10. The task of nation building is a continuous one. It never stops. Our founding fathers, from all corners of this country, worked together to actualize the creation of one Nigeria.

11. After independence, the same founding fathers worked together to maintain this one Nigeria. Yes, they had differences and varied opinions at times. After all, they were only human. And yes, they had moments of weaknesses and doubt. But again, no one is perfect. However, one thing they all protected until the end of their lives was having one Nigeria for all Nigerians.

12. Today, Nigeria is 57 years old. Nigeria has gone through many pains. But has also achieved significant successes. Its citizens are leaders in all aspect of human development. But we rarely celebrate these successes more. Some misguided Nigerians would rather channel their energy to propagating negative stories and senseless rumours.

13. Over 60% of Nigeria’s population is under 25 years old. They have little knowledge of Nigeria’s journey. They were not born during the dark days of civil war and the nation rebuilding that happened afterwards.

14. The task of nation building is a continuous one. It relies on the successful transition of factual knowledge from one generation to another. This means it is our collective responsibility to ensure we do not betray our founding fathers as we transfer the Nigeria project from one generation to the next.

15. As our national anthem says; “the labour of our heroes past shall never be in vain”

16. So parents, speak to your children about the importance of their heritage, culture and being open minded. Teachers, teach your students about the history of this nation and how it was a coalition of diversity that brought it to existence. And leaders, we must lead by example and show tolerance and acceptance of diversity.

17. Today, most grievances expressed by all Nigerians, not only those in the south east, is lack of jobs, poor infrastructure and basic amenities. We are working aggressively to address these.


18. We are building roads, hospitals and schools. We are expanding our power transmission infrastructure while supporting the generation and distribution companies to ensure more power is delivered to our homes. We are developing agricultural programs that will create more jobs while making Nigeria food secure

19. For example, we recently mobilized the contractor of the 2nd Niger Bridge back to site. We have also made provisions in the 2018 budget proposal to ensure this project is completed as early as possible.

20. We are also upgrading the Federal Medical Centre in Umuahia by constructing a Modern Medical Diagnostic Centre. This will further bring quality and affordable health care to the region.

21. In the agricultural sector, the States in this region have participated in all Federal Government agricultural initiatives. For instance, Ebonyi was among the first few State Government’s to sign up to the Presidential Fertilizer Initiative. The program has already created thousands of direct and indirect jobs in this fertile part of the our country.

22. I would like to congratulate Governor Umahi who put aside his political differences to participate in this federally led project that has improved the lives of not only the farmers of Ebonyi State, but the entire South East States.

23. For the South East, I am pleased to inform you that our 2018 budget proposal has allocated up to N10 billion for the development of the Enyimba Industrial Park and Nnewi Auto Park. Both projects will be implemented in collaboration with the respective state Governments and the private sector. Again, these are classic examples of the partnerships between the Federal and State Governments in the region to improve the livelihoods of Nigerians – politics aside.

24. In October 2017, we commenced the payment of pensions to police officers who were granted Presidential pardon in 2000 after serving in the former Biafran Police during the 30 month civil war. These officers, and their next of kin, have waited for their pensions for 17 years since the Presidential pardon.

25. I want to assure the Ndigbo that the welfare and well-being of every Nigerian is important to us. We stand for inclusivity and will not leave any section or citizen behind.

26. I thank you most sincerely for your attention and warm reception.

30. May God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“My presence here today is a demonstration of my strong belief in the unity of Nigeria. As the most populous country in Africa with over 300 ethnic groups, our diversity is almost unique. When I met with the leaders of the South-east in Abuja last month, they raised several issues of concern including the state of the roads and infrastructure in the region.


“I will like to commend His Excellency Governor David Umahi for his vision and commitment to the development of this state. Some of the projects I commissioned since my arrival are laudable. I am also grateful to the traditional rulers of Ebonyi State for the honour bestowed on me with the traditional title of Enyi Oha 1. I thank you for this honour and warm reception.

“I want to assure you that we will deliver on our promises. Our 2018 budget included many projects for the region in the area of power, agriculture and social services.”

Anambra Guber: My Life In Danger, Obiano Panics

Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano yesterday raised the alarm that his life was in danger following the sudden withdrawal of his security details by the police.

Obiano who stormed out of the election stakeholders meeting at the Prof. Dora Akunyili Development Centre, Awka after raising the alarm had waited for hours before the arrival of the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.

The governor said the development was unacceptable and a dangerous signal of what would happen ahead of the governorship election and demanded the immediate return of his security details to avoid overheating of the polity.

He said: “I want my security details returned immediately because I am going to start a fight from there. I am the sitting governor of Anambra state and all the paraphernalia of my office must be there.

“This is unacceptable and a sign of what will happen. Those behind this would be disappointed because we are very ready for the election.

“My life is in danger; this morning they withdrew my senior police aides, that is what I am saying and it is unacceptable. We will fight this we are not going to allow that to go. I don’t need any replacement, I want to work with the people I have worked with.”

The governor had earlier complained of not being accorded recognition by the moderator of the event when he walked in and said he had wanted to speak with the Inspector General of police who was scheduled to be at the meeting but had to voice out as the IG was not around and he was not aware when he would arrive.


Reacting to the governor’s outburst, the National Chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, said the event was a stakeholders’ meeting, and as such no candidate would be accorded any special treatment regardless of his position.

He said the commission insists on equal treatment of all candidates in the election and should not only have equal standing, but must be respected.

The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, who eventually arrived the meeting when almost all the candidates and majority of the stakeholders had left, explained that the withdrawal of the governor’s ADC and policemen attached to politicians was a routine exercise the Police carries out during elections and was not in any way done to witch hunt the governor.

The IG said he decided to withdraw the policemen attached to politicians because of previous experiences where such cops worked for their masters to truncate the electoral process.

He said the police have deployed 21, 000 officers that would complement the 5,000 in the state, 303 patrol vehicles, three helicopters, one for each of the three zones, 15 gunboats , Armored personnel carrier, Deputy Inspector General, Operations; two AIGs, three Commissioners of Police and some Deputy and Assistant Commissioners for the election.

IG Idris also disclosed that Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Garba Umar, had been asked to step down for neutrality and another officer who has no affinity with the state would take his place.

Earlier on, the INEC Chairman said that the election was unique because it would be the first in the history of Nigeria where a large number of candidates, 37 of them would be contesting for one governorship position, just as it would be the first governorship election that would be combined with election for state House of Assembly where eight political parties would be contesting.

Man Bites Off Nurse’s Nose And Ears After Inviting Her To His Home For A Romantic Date


A man left a nurse horrifically disfigured by biting off her ears, nose and fingertips after inviting her to his house for a romantic meal. The sickening and violent attack lasted four hours and came during the pair’s first date after meeting online.

The attacker Anatoliy Ezhkov has been named a Russian Hannibal Lecter after leaving 41-year-old nurse Irina Gonchar with life-changing injuries, MetroUK learnt.


The 45-year-old is thought to have been high on drugs when he made the sickening attack. He allegedly plied her with alcohol and beat her up before tying her up with a cord and sinking his teeth into her flesh.

He then allegedly tried to strangle her but couldn’t get a firm grip on her neck because of the amount of blood. Instead he decided to rip off her ears, nose and fingertips with his teeth as well as taking chunks out of her spine during the four hour ordeal, it is claimed.


The woman was eventually rescued after neighbours, hearing the woman’s screams, called the police. She was taken to hospital suffering from concussion, a rib fracture and severe wounds to the rest of her body.

A relative of the woman told local media: ‘This torture lasted for four hours, this man tore at her body with his teeth, she is positive he tried to kill her. ‘He tried to smother her, but her neck was covered by blood and his hands got slippy. ‘Neighbours heard screams but they are used to these things as there are lots of alcoholics living in the hostel.’

After being questioned by police the man was released on police bail until a court hearing. One of the victim’s family, who was not named, told local media:


‘How could the cops let him go? What if he breaks into her flat after she is sent home and tries to kill her?’

Neighbour, Ludmila Zalomskaya, added: ‘I am shocked with this story and even more shocked he was released.’ A police spokesman confirmed the incident took place but declined to comment.
