Omije Osas, a final year student of the University of Benin, has invented an amazing technology which he released in an inspiring video demo online showing how a phone can be operated completely by a finger 2cm above the screen.
The phone 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.
About his latest invention, Osas wrote;
”Nigeria is blessed with intellectual resources, but we’ve been mentally conditioned to tapping the resources under our feet rather than those between our ears. Well, times have changed, and believe it or not, within the next four years, a Nigerian made phone will dominate the global phone market and shock the world. We’re hungry, dogged, and strongly determined to make the memory ours, while others are still dreaming.”

The phone in question is a one-of-a-kind touchless phone built by Omijie himself. In the video below, he demonstrates how the phone works and demos the touchless technology.
He’s optimistic that with support from relevant quarters, his creation can take on the global tech giants like Apple and Samsung.
