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 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.”

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"

Buhari in Ebonyi, Promises to Address Power, Social Service Issues in S’East

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday reiterated his commitment to deliver on his promises, including addressing issues of agriculture, power and social services in the South-east zone, adding that the 2018 budget also captured many projects in the zone.

The president, who commended the state Governor, Chief David Umahi, for his warm reception and his commitment to the development of the state, said: “I am delighted to be here in Abakaliki to interact with the good people of Ebonyi State and indeed the South-east region as a whole. I want to express my gratitude to the people of Ebonyi State for their hospitality and warm reception since I arrived the state.

“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.

Buhari Approves The Treatment Of Former VP. Alex Ekwueme Abroad

President Muhammadu Bubari has approved that former Vice-President, Dr Alex Ekwueme, be flown abroad immediately for medical treatment after family disclosed his unstable health condition.

Buhari’s approval came barely 24 hours after medical experts advised the family of ailing second republic Vice President against flying him abroad until his condition improves.

It was gathered that the President’s approval was sequel to a brief the President received Friday on the medical condition of the former Vice-President.

Few minutes after, the president in a statement on Friday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, approved the request, praying that God grant the elder statesman speedy recovery.

It would be recalled that he had been admitted at a private hospital in Enugu state, where doctors have continued battle to stabilize his health while arrangement for flying him abroad continues.

You Are Irresponsible Journalists, Kyari, Oyo-Ita Never Quarelled -Presidency

The Presidential Media Aide, Mr. Garba Shenhu has described media reports of a fight between top government officials at the State House as fabrications that could only have been conjured by correspondents who would probably make better fiction writers than journalists.

He continued his tirade on the journalists in a meeting with them Friday by branding them are mere irresponsible writers.

The presidency also denied that there is feud between the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari and the Head of Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita.

Shehu insisted that it was impossible for the conversation between Kyari, and Oyo-Ita to have been heard by any journalist, as the distance between the State House correspondents and the two government officials as they addressed the Vice President at Wednesday’s FEC meeting, would have made their conversation completely inaudible to the journalists.

It insisted that it was taking the matter beyond what it is to suggest that mere debate and argument over issues, translated to a feud, a fight or a clash.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Shehu, stated this in a short meeting with State House Correspondents at the the Media Center, to appeal to them to be responsible in their reportage of the number seat of power in the country.

“By tradition, the media organizations send their best reporters to the State House. This should reflect, at all times on the quality of reporting.

“I am a journalist myself, and in journalism, you are not supposed to report anything other than the facts of what you heard or observed directly, or what you were told by a firsthand or authoritative eyewitness,” he said.

“You cannot add two and two to make twenty-two and present it to the public as news.”

According to him, “People can debate and argue over issues, but to suggest that there was a feud, a fight or a clash was to take matters beyond what they were.”

Shehu also denied categorically any suggestion that the two government officials had been summoned to see the President over the alleged skirmish, referring to that conclusion as yet another example of conjecture.

“Top government officials of that calibre see the President on a regular basis. To suggest that they were summoned to see him as a result of a so-called feud is just a fabrication, a conclusion that is below the level of responsible journalism that we expect from our State House correspondents,” he said.

Whatsapp Messenger Hit By Temporary Outage; Facebook Investigating

WhatsApp messenger suffered a temporary outage in India and many other countries, according to reports from multiple users on Facebook and Twitter, on Friday.

Users in countries ranging from Brazil and Russia to Vietnam and Myanmar reported on social media that WhatsApp was down in their countries.

The extent of the outage and the reasons for it were not immediately known.

‘Whatsappdown’ was the top trending item on Twitter in India, which is WhatsApp’s biggest market with about 200 million of its billion-plus users.

It was also a top trending item on Twitter in Pakistan, Britain, Germany and many other countries.

Users reported WhatsApp, the world’s most popular messaging service, had begun to gradually function again about 30 minutes after initial complaints of an outage appeared on social media.

Users in Malaysia and Singapore also complained of WhatsApp being down in those countries.

A spokeswoman for Facebook in Singapore said the company was still investigating the matter.

Independent websites monitoring outages of popular social media services via online conversations and Twitter messages report regular outages for WhatsApp, often one every few weeks, but these are typically brief and confined to certain geographies.

WhatsApp has faced similar widespread outages this year, including for several hours in May.

WhatsApp is used by more than 1.2 billion people around the world and is a key tool for communications and commerce in many countries.

Invigilator’s Attitude And Its Relationship With Exam Failure Amongst Students

An invigilator could be a staff, or an external body that oversees and ensures that exams are written in a conducive environment that will give students, ample opportunity to focus on their works and also militate against examination malpractice.

Dissemination of rules and regulations as regards the conduct of an examination is one of the responsibilities of an exam invigilator.

Enforcement of such rules is equally one of them.

Now, an invigilator is not just there to monitor and prevent a student from cheating during exams. It is rather horrifying to note that invigilators have turned themselves into wolves and lions and as a result, students no longer see them as their guide, but a nightmare!

I am very much concerned because we are leaving untouched, one of the key factors responsible for examination failures, especially in Nigerian tertiary institutions and which has gone a long way to encouraging what we call ‘sorting’

Examination rooms or classes are supposed to be conducive enough so as to enhance students’ ability to focus completely on their work. That is why notes like “Exam In Progress, No Noise’ are usually pasted on the doors, walls and other strategic positions informing people that absolute silence is needed in that very environment.

Unfortunately, those who make these laws are the ones who break them.

I have been in an exam hall where I nearly raised the class on an invigilator who kept screaming at one student after another, and succeeded in distracting everyone. Luckily, the H.O.D was around and the lecturer was sent away from the class.

Students are issued out codes of conduct in an exam hall, but lecturers and invigilators are not issued same in an exam. Is this right? Does an invigilator have the right to distract you in your own exams? Does a lecturer have the right to slap you in an exam? Does a lecturer have the right to scream, discuss with other lecturers, make and answer phone calls, laugh and sing inside an exam hall?

These attitudes by Nigerian lecturers have become a nightmare which unknowingly, is a key contributory factor to series of examination failures.

Invigilators are supposed to guide and put students through when they encounter challenges during an exam. Students should be at ease and should feel comfortable beckoning on you for assistance when the need arises.

How can a student recall and put down correctly what he or she was taught, when the invigilator’s screaming keeps ringing in their heads? Whoever performs well in this condition?

How can you pass your exams when you keep hearing invigilators discussing about how they made merry and danced last night in the club and how he managed to wake and all what not? How will you perform well when your attention is divided?

Please, whoever buys this idea, should share this. Lecturers and invigilators need to be issued codes of conduct in an exam room.

Court Orders El-Rufai, Police To Pay Audu Maikori N40m

The Federal High Court in Abuja today ordered Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai and three others to pay N40 million as damages to the President of Choc City Group, Audu Maikori.

Justice John Tsoho awarded the costs as compensation for what he ruled as Maikori’s unlawful arrest on and detention between February 17 and 18, and between March 10 and 13, 2017.

The judge was delivering judgement in the fundamental human rights enforcement suit filed by Maikori on May 5, 2017.

Other respondents in Maikori’s suit are the Inspector-General of Police, the Commissioner of Police in Kaduna state, and the state’s Attorney-General.

Justice Tsoho also directed the respondents to pay the sum of N1,430 to the applicant as the cost of instituting the suit.

He, however, noted that his verdict does not preclude the ongoing trial of Maikori in Kaduna, adding that the police could justifiably arrest suspects for allegedly breaking the law in the cyberspace

It will be recalled that Maikori was arrested on allegations of posting “inciting” tweets alleging the killing of some southern Kaduna students by Fulani herdsmen.

Twitter Users Reacts After Pastor Adeboye’s Wife Posted This On Twitter (Photos/Reactions)

Pastor and Mrs. E.A Adeboye
From all indications, the love and chemistry between Pastor E.A Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God and his wife, Folu, is causing serious stir online!

Recall the eye brows raised after he called his wife ‘baby’ online on her 69th birthday.

The lovebirds even took it a step further by openly exchanging kisses during a book launch and surprise party held in honor of Pastor Adeboye.

However, the latest tweet from the Twitter handle of Pastor Folu seems to take the cake, as not only did she shower love on her man, it was done in very relatable terms using slangs from ‘popular culture’.

The tweet read “Just take a look at my #MCM and #MCE. I am a blessed woman. #MansTooHot“, declaring the preacher as her MCM (Man Crush Monday) and MCE (Man Crush Everyday), while also borrowing from the trending #MansNotHot.

This left Nigerians wondering why the social media handler of the pastor’s wife would use those choice of words.

See the tweet below:

Nigerians reacted by commenting under the tweet, saying:

Popular Kano-Based Priest Quits Catholic Church

This Benue born Catholic priest, based in Kano, Fr. Gospel .J. Inalegwu, has quit the Catholic Church!

Inalegwu, who was ordained in 2013, was kidnapped last year at his parish at St Joseph Catholic Church, Jitan – Dutse, in Tudun Wada Local Government Council, Kano State.

According to Sunday Sun, Father Gospel .J. Inalegwu had since tendered his resignation letter to the Bishop of Kano Diocese, Most Rev. John Namawzah Niyiring and had traveled out of the state with all his belongings.

A priest of the Catholic Church who decried his action, said the Church was yet to recover from the shock of his unprecedented action.

He suggested that the priest might have been affected by the trauma of his abduction, adding however that, “there could be other personal reasons behind his action”.

Sunday Sun gathered that after the priest regained freedom, he was granted a period of rest, but was eventually asked to resume at his old parish contrary to his expectation, as Sunday Sun learnt that he had anticipated to be posted elsewhere.

The Communications Director, Kano Diocese, Father Augustine Nnadi declined comment on the development, but His Lordship, the Bishop of Kano Diocese, Most Rev. John Namawzah Niyiring told Sunday Sun that, “Priests do not resign as they do in the public service, but are laicized”

While confirming that Father Inalegwu was no longer available for his pastoral assignments in the diocese, he maintained that the only authority that could process the request of a priest wishing to return to a lay status was the Holy Father, the Pope. Asked if he had tried to talk to the priest, he replied:

“Yes I did that. I had some discussions with him to try to persuade him not to do what he is doing. I think he probably wants something else.”

The Bishop debunked insinuations that the priest’s action was informed by his abduction experience.

“Long before his kidnap saga, he had voiced out his desire to do what he did. And we have a record of that” he said.

Below is what he wrote:
"Kwara people who are supporters of Baba Adinni aka Bukola Saraki caged and locked out of the wedding ceremony of the daughter of their great leader. I hear they were locked out so as to prevent them from erupting into nuclear battles over amala, semo or jollof rice. Hunger is real in Kwara State. I don’t even care if Kwarans insult me as usual this morning but this is a disgrace to humanity."

Wanted Man Turns Himself In After Losing A Bet He Made With Police On Facebook

A wanted Michigan man has turned himself in after losing a bet he made with police on Facebook.
Michael Zaydel had promised to give himself up to police if they could get at least 1,000 shares on a Facebook post.

The cocky 21-year-old even promised to bring Redford Township Police Department (RTPD) officers a dozen doughnuts if they were victorious in the challenge.

“I’m not worried about it,” he wrote. “If your next post gets 1,000 shares I’ll turn myself in with a dozen doughnuts and that’s a promise.

“And I’ll pick up every piece of litter around your public schools.”

The police made it clear that they didn’t know if the wanted man would actually stay true to his word, but they thought completing the challenge was worth a shot. After news of it went viral online, the police managed to get over 4,000 shares on their post, so it was up to Michael Zydel to fulfill his promise.

The fugitive eventually surrendered to police, fulfilling his promise by arriving at the station with doughnuts and a bagel. (NewTelegraph learnt)

“Zaydel made good on his promise to turn himself in to RTPD for his outstanding warrants,” the department said.

“He walked in on his own, and not only did he bring the doughnuts, he brought one bagel! We would again like to express our gratitude for the support of all who followed this, shared it, and left us positive feedback.”

Mr Zaydel was sentenced to 39 days in jail after pleading guilty to breaking the terms of his probation.

Lady Dumps Ex-Boyfriend’s $55,000 Mercedes In A Swimming Pool After He Broke Up With Her (Photos)

Guy Gentile, a Bahamas-based banker, broke up with Russian model Kristina Kuchma over dinner at a restaurant over the weekend and she certainly got her revenge.

Gentille, who runs a brokerage, told The New York Post that Kuchma drove his Mercedes into the backyard swimming pool on Saturday October 7 and it took four hours to fish it out.

When Business Insider asked him about the incident, he said:

“I must accept some responsibility, if a woman is not crazy, she doesn’t love you. And I must’ve drove her crazy for her to have drove my car into the pool!”

He broke up with 24-year-old Kuchma during dinner at a restaurant after she asked for $50,000 (£38,000) to help start up a marketing business venture. They had been together for a year and a half.

Having already bought her a Gucci bag, a new iPhone, and Beats headphones as a birthday gift, he thought the request “blurred the lines” between business and romance, he told The New York Post.

“I said, ‘You know what? You got the wrong guy. If you want a guy who’s going to hand you money for nothing, you got the wrong guy,'” he reportedly said.

Gentile claims she then threw hot green tea in his face, and stormed off with the keys to his $55,000 Mercedes.

Kuchma reportedly texted Gentile in broken English the night after crashing the car stating:

“Lier! You told me you will help me to start a business! That were your words! Now you want to be an investor??? Well investor I have a surprise for you on a backyard, start with that investment idea first.”

He said that his “heart dropped because of [fears she was inside]. I didn’t care about the car at that moment. But after I realized she wasn’t in it, then I start to get pissed off that she would pull something like this after everything I’ve done for her.”

He said he came home the next morning to find his Mercedes S400 hybrid in the backyard pool.

“I dumped her. She dumped my car.”

Police confirmed to The Post that a police report was made, and Kuchma was the only other person with access to the car, according to Gentile. She reportedly declined to comment when contacted by The New York Post.

“I really loved this girl and would have married her, but she went too far,” Gentile said.
