There’s a lot of people who will point the fault in something but never do anything about it, these remarkable children have helped and changed lives with their amazing inventions, from helping the blind to helping the dying bees and identifying heart-attacks before they happen.
1. G4B (Google For The Blind)
Goggle for Blind is an invention in the field of science by Anang Tadar, a class XI student of New Galaxy Academy, which helps the blind to navigate without making any physical contact with the objects around them. The technology is based on the principle of Echolocation, used by bats. Bats use this with the help of sound waves and echoes locate objects and food in the dark.
Anang does not belong to a very well-to- family, however, with the abundance of his knowledge has successfully made a functional prototype, which will be further developed by UNICEF. Anang has been awarded the Dinanath Pandey Smart Idea Innovation Award, 2017, for his work.
2. ‘Lightnight McQueen’
At the young age of 12, Kavya Vignesh, with her team has developed a bot to save bees on the Lego Mindstorms EV3 robotics kit. This invention plays an important role in the field of environmental science, since it helps in relocation of bees back to the farm without causing them harm. The bot not only ensures safe relocation of bees, but also leads them to making a contribution to the food chain.
The young inventors, who call themselves Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, was India’s youngest ever team to qualify for the First Lego League – European Open championship in Aarhus in May. The team won second place in the European Robotics Competition. We hope to see more inventions from these children
3. Smallest Satellite
Rifath Sharook, an 18-year-old from Karur in Tamil Nadu, has stunned everyone with his knowledge and skill by inventing the world’s smallest satellite that has been launched by NASA. ‘KalamSat’, named after APJ Abdul Kalam, is only 64 grams in weight.
It was fitted into a 3D printed box and sent into space. Information received through the satellite will help us in building better spacecrafts and also can be used for back-up communications in times of disaster.
4. Silent Heart Attack Skin Patch
There are a number of instances where individuals show no symptoms but become victims of a heart-attack.Akash Manoj, a student in the 10th grade, Tamil Nadu, has built a mechanism that tracks FABP3 – a blood biomarker of heart attack – without puncturing the skin.
His skin patch, that can be attached to the ear or the wrist, will release a ‘positive’ electrical impulse, which will attract the negatively charged protein released by the heart to signal a heart attack. If the FABP3 quantity is high, the person should get medical help.
“Without change there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement. Those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable.” – William Pollard
These young brilliant minds have made a difference in the world with their inventions, all you need is the motivation to change.
