From app creation, hydrogen cell vehicles and prominent personalities.

According to Deola Sagoe, one of Nigeria’s finest designers, African Fashion Industry currently contributes only a small fraction of what it is capable of contributing to the continent’s GDP. Let us face it, African Fashion is experiencing massive media presence, which means the world is completely aware of the Industry and its talented designers.

I love social media; there’s always something interesting that comes in every now and then. This is why I actually love to update my apps every single time there is a pop up. We cool like that.

And to demonstrate how interesting social media has become, WhatsApp, the leading chat engine, currently valued at over $442.1 billion and with over 1.5 billion users as of 2017 has now decided to include a couple more features.

According to a report released by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp has decided to include silent mode and vacation mode to the app. According to the revelation Silent Mode is already active on all WhatsApp accounts. With this feature enabled you no longer see how many muted messages you have received whenever you enter the app. However, Vacation Mode is still in the works and will work with archived chats that have also been muted. Currently, when you archive or mute a chat on WhatsApp, you’ll still see the chats when you go back into the app. With Vacation Mode, your archived chats that are muted will remain invisible. This means that, soon, the only time you’ll see your archived conversations is when you actually want to.

So ladies you can now actually really truly mute that stalker that just won’t quit bugging you.

Furthermore, WABetaInfo also hints that WhatsApp is working on developing a Linked Accounts option for Business and standard users; this means that soon you will be able to integrate other social media platforms such as Instagram to your account. How great is that? So turn on your notification because soon you’ll be required to update your app once again.

Lagos day-to-day hustle, crowed over-head bridges, cars and buses speeding without even looking at both sides for citizens crossing; when will this madness end? That’s the unanswered question, I frequently ask myself. The major question my inquisitive colleagues at work ask me is; when am I acquiring my own ride? Well, that’s a critical discussion for another ridiculous day. Let me not bore you with my automobile-less status. I am actually a big fan of the BUGATTI brand; most especially the recent model, BUGATTI CHIRON; exclusive sound free radiator, electronic control, maximum speed and sexy interiors to die for. It’s the fastest yet most powerful, sophisticated, technologically designed super sport car ever created. It was designed to the meet possible demands in terms of comfort, unique style, luxury and everyday durability and easy convenience. Based on research, it was uniquely created to endure value and a breathtaking automotive accomplishment.

Few months ago, the famous LEGO Building Bricks and Bugatti Sport Cars collaborated to build the perfect ultimate super-car model to look exactly like the magical Bugatti Chiron using the LEGO Technic elements called LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron. It was made to drive using only LEGO powered function motors. This mind-blowing ride was unveiled about a month ago. The LEGO Bugatti Chiron’s engine generated 5.3 horse power.

The collaboration led to putting together passionate, well dedicated team of 16 specialists; including creative designers, mechanical and electrical professional experts, and used over 13, 000 constructed man-hours creating this innovative car, piece by piece. It was made with over a million Lego Technic elements, making it the first large scale movable developed model. This constructed car featured movable 16 cylinders with 8 functioning gears. This project was tagged “BUILD FOR REAL”.

Trust me, it’s incredibly astonishing. It has never happened in the History of Mankind, but with fast innovative technological intelligence, anything is possible. I was TINKING, why the sudden creation of this car? How were the creative designers and engineers able to overcome challenges recreating the Bugatti Chiron using lego technic? Will there be a continued plan to build more of this innovative car? Or is it just for antic purpose? Just TINKING of more questions I guess will never be answered.

The Resemblance of both CARS is STRIKING

Here are some comments from YouTube fans:

@PresidentOfEvilArts- They should make a spaceship for Trump and transport him to Mars.

@Jacky- This is the coolest LEGO Car.

@MarkCook- I am absolutely stunned. That’s incredible.

This is an intelligent way to inspire imagination and creativity for the FUTURE.

If they can TINK it, so can we. TINKERS never run out of Innovative ideas. TINK of how to reduce traffic in Lagos-Nigeria. Put on your TINKING caps.

Tech is Driving Unemployment

THE NEWER INVENTIONS IN TECH FOLLOWING THE ADDITION OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IS SPIKING UNEMPLOYMENT

I am not an enemy of progress but the recent inventions we see these days are and will put many people out of jobs. This is up for argument but before you say anything in opposition, I ask you to read this article to the end. A friend of mine once told me that technology is taking all the jobs and I didn’t see what he meant until now. Note that technology is driving economical and financial advancement all over the world but it is poised to take many people out of jobs.

Alibaba, the world’ biggest e-commerce company, has launched a cashier-less wine storage and retail facility in its home city of Hangzhou. This innovation helps improve retail habits; however it enables shoppers to purchase wines by the case without paying with cash or interacting with any sales staff. So it’s high time we said goodbye to those hot young ladies that inspire us to buy more wines in the wine store, which means more ladies out of jobs. It’s not just Alibaba; some Chinese tech companies such as Alibaba’s rivals JD.com, Suning and BingoBox have launched their own versions of unmanned cashless stores in mainland China. You may say, “oh well, it’s just China”, don’t forget this is Africa, technological advancements in China don’t take long to cross the African borders.

According to the Miami Herald, Yotelpad, a 30-story building that's part hotel, part condominium, is employing three robot butlers for guests and residents. They can handle room service, bring extra towels, give directions, chat with guests and play music. They can even use the elevator and are also programmed to say different greetings and responses. A touchscreen on the device is enabled to show several facial expressions.

So, after reading this article and watching these videos, you tell me, is tech putting people out of jobs or not?

I for one would love to buy drinks from the automated store and have these robots make my bed but I still would love the human touch from time to time.

Drivers Wanted or Not?

UBER AND TOYOTA ENTER HUGE PARTNERSHIP TO DISRUPT THE AUTOMOTIVE AND TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRY.

Apparently the future we thought was years ahead is here now. All those futuristic features we saw in cartoons and movies have become our present hour reality and those who can’t evolve or adapt to the times will be rendered irrelevant. Some days ago, a friend of mine walked up to me telling me that he wanted to learn some form of handiwork and I told him that was a remarkable thought but he said something that caught my attention, he said he didn’t want to learn something that in a few years to come technology will take over and his expertise will now be irrelevant.

Now that brings us to this, Uber and Toyota have entered a partnership to adopt the company’s driverless cars into its system. This venture would see Toyota –the largest car manufacturing company in the world –invest $500 million dollars into Uber, and this would increase Uber’s value to about $72 billion dollars. This is sincerely astonishing, I remember watching the 1993 blockbuster, Demolition Man which starred Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes and thought to myself, I want one of those driverless cars.

But what does this innovation mean to the African economy?

First it will reduce the number of people who work as drivers in Africa. Therefore it will increase unemployment; however it will increase employment for those who are technically savvy as it would require some level of technical support. Although it still beckons the question, can I trust some algorithm and a few technical mumbo jumbos to get me to my destination safely? Plus, do you think such initiative would succeed in Africa? Uber and Toyota have both recorded tremendous success in this part of the world and this initiative if successful would change the automotive and transport system as we know it.

So, drivers wanted or not? I’ll leave the answer to this question to you.
