 - A young Nigerian, Praise Kelechi, has created an Iron Man suit with cutouts from cartons

- Kelechi said his future plan is to travel abroad and study robotics to better his craft

- According to the boy's mother, Patience, parents must cultivate the habit of encouraging their kids' skills


A 14-year-old Nigerian boy, Praise Kelechi, has shown off his improvisational skill of using cartons to create robots and other superhero costumes.

In an interview with BBC, the boy, while, displaying the Iron Man suit replica he made, said he was working on it before the lockdown but had more time to perfect it as school was on a forced holiday.

He wore the suit like the popular Tony Stark character would do. The creative SS1 student said due to the lack of glue, he always melts styrofoam with fuel to produce his own adhesive.

The young Nigerian added that his hope is to one day gain a scholarship to study robotics abroad. In mentioning his sources of inspiration, he said he was influenced by the Iron Man movie and Adam Savage.

He gave this piece of advice:

    “I want to tell the world that no matter how rich or poor you may be, you can still be whatever you want to be and do whatever you want. It does not matter the resources available or not, you can just be who you are.”

His mother, Patience Onuoha, said her son has had the knack to create things from papers since when he was seven.

She advised parents to encourage the crafts of their wards, adding that times have really changed from when the popular ways to succeed were being a doctor or lawyer.

Kelechi also showed the Thor hammer he made. He said he is working on a real rocket launcher for his future project.

Realistic Robotic Animals That will Blow Your Mind

Robots are one of the fascinating inventions of the 21st Century. Today, we use these inventions in almost every field now. But, did you ever imagine they will infiltrate the wild too?
You will be surprised to know that Robotic Animals are the new focus of Engineers. Scientists are keen to learn the animal mechanisms of locomotion, flight, and swimming. Recent robot creatures tell us that scientists are successful in not only learning but also implementing these mechanisms. WildCat Robots and BigDog Robots are the big examples in front of us. But there are other animal robots you should know. Read the article and tell us which artificial animal is your favourite

Popular Robotic Animals:

Whether you talk about the WildCat Robots or the BigDog Robots, Human ingenuity has no boundaries. Only a man genius knows how to mold a machine that looks so real. So much that it is hard to differentiate an artificial animal from the natural one.
Don’t you believe me? So, find it yourself. Here are the eight most realistic Robotic Animals d the reason for their creation.

WildCat Robots:

WildCat Robots are from Boston Dynamics. These Robotic animals are designed for military purposes. They run at a speed of 16 mph, crossing you like a light. These four-legged robot creatures are fast and stable. Also, they look more fierce than a cat from the wild.
However, it is not clear how WildCat Robots will be used. Keeping in mind the high speed, it is suggested that the robot will supply arms to the front line. Some say it will be used as a suicide robot, exploding in the enemy’s territory.

BigDog Robots:

Another incredible invention by the Boston Dynamics are the BigDog Robots. These are four-legged, walking, and running robots that look no less than animals. In the military, these robots carry heavy gear and weapons.
The first version of BigDog Robots came in 2005. Since then, many models of this artificial animal have been created. The later versions showed improved stability in military operations

MIT Cheetah:

The flexible joints and strong limbs make MIT’s Cheetah as swift as any wild cheetah. It can run and examine the disaster zones. Also, quick movements make it ideal for rescue equipment.
MIT has also come out with a mini version of its robotic Cheetah. The baby cheetah is light, springy, and can do a back-flip. It can bend its legs wide and can trot over an uneven area while restoring its balance. You will be amazed to see how it climbs the staircase with double the speed of a running human.


Not all robot creatures are invented for military purposes. Some of them, like Robird, terrify other birds.
Scientists studied the prey and predator relationship in birds. They came to know that birds of prey are territorial. Other birds stay away from a fierce-looking bird controlling a territory. Traditionally, trained birds were used over farms and airports to keep the site clean. But now, Robird saves the training and cost of feeding. This artificial animal flies like a raptor and looks fierce. Just like a real bird, it works well to scare flocks and keep them out of the site.


Eelume is an artificial animal that mimics the underwater mechanisms of eels. It is a robot designed to discover life underwater.
Life at ocean bottom is vast and full of wonders. But it is tough to get there. The sea creatures and the ocean currents make it challenging for divers to reach the ocean bed. Even more challenging is to come back alive.
The earlier version of Eelume worked just like an eel. But, The latest version has more thrusters to add greater maneuverability.

Robo Terp:

If you want a pet that always stays with you, get yourselves, Robo Terp. The inspiration for this robot came from turtles. It can survive on land as well as in water.
The terrapin can swim against the currents using the 3 DoF joints. The rotational shoulder joints allow the robot to change from swimming to walking mode. The transition to a different mode does not affect the efficiency of the Robo Terp.
Amphibious robotic animals like Robo Terp will be useful in search and recovery tasks.

Cockroach Robots:

We know Cockroaches have amazing speed and the ability to squeeze into cracks. They can even disappear into holes, which are smaller than their size. Scientists researched how they are able to do that.
Studies also led to the idea of developing Cockroach as a search and rescue animal. Therefore, CRAM (a compressible robot with an articulated mechanism) was created on this idea. These are palm-sized robots with exoskeletons and softshells. These robot creatures would run through confined spaces to locate survivors. Although, You might freak seeing them as they look so real. But, they are there for your safety.


It is a four-legged animal-like robot that looks very creepy. SpotMini is the quietest robot ever. It can silently enter where large robots cant. It has an arm at the position of the head. This arm enables SpotMini to do various tasks like open the doors.
Spotmini has a battery along with front, rear, and side cameras. It navigates and scrolls with the help of these cameras. The purpose of building SpotMini was to create a Robot that can access to office buildings and houses. The robot can help with house chores and office work.
You now know that robots can be as real as animals. You also know how humans have used animal mechanisms for their purpose. Wouldn’t it be incredible to use these machines for work? Or to trick someone into thinking these are real animals.
Engineers are designing new Robotic Animals at a fast pace. It would not be crazy to say that soon robots will replace humans in battlefields and workplaces.

Apple expands Apple Card’s interest-free financing to iPad, Mac, AirPods & more

Apple expands Apple Card’s interest-free financing to iPad, Mac, AirPods & more 

Last year, Apple introduced interest-free financing for new iPhone purchases when you pay with an Apple Card. Today, it’s expanding interest-free Apple Card monthly installments to a range of Apple products, including Mac and iPad, Apple TV, HomePod and AirPods, plus select accessories and related products. However, the financing options available will vary by product and device — and none offer a term as long as the 24-month interest-free option that’s offered for iPhone purchases made using Apple Card.

Instead, Apple says that Apple TV, HomePod and AirPods can be financed over six months with no interest.

Meanwhile, other products like Mac, iPad and related products and accessories can be paid for over 12 months without interest.

This latter group includes Mac and related products and accessories like the Pro Display XDR, Pro Stand, VESA Mount Adapter Kit for iMac Pro, Apple Afterburner Card and Leather Sleeves for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.

Meanwhile, in addition to the iPad, you can also finance iPad accessories like the Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, Smart Keyboard Folio for iPad Pro, Smart Keyboard for iPad and iPad Air, Smart Folios, and Covers for iPad Pro and iPad.

All Apple products purchased with Apple Card will also receive the 3% cash back in the form of Apple Card’s Daily Cash, as before. This cash can be used with Apple Pay, sent to family and friends via iMessage or put toward your Apple Card bill.

Apple had already offered interest-free financing for its iPhone through the iPhone Upgrade Program before its launch of Apple Card interest-free financing last year. But the earlier program required a 24-month installment loan from Citizens One and could still include other fees — like those on late payments, for example. Apple Card’s financing program for iPhone and now this wider range of Apple devices promises zero fees in addition to the interest-free financing and cash back, which ultimately makes it a better deal for customers.

The expansion also brings Apple closer to what some hope will be the company’s end goal: offering Apple devices and optional add-on services, like Apple Music or Apple TV+, as a packaged subscription. On that front, Apple has been said to be considering an Apple services bundle, with music, news and TV, but its music licensing deals may derail those plans and would make a full bundle of devices and services difficult to launch. In the meantime, being able to finance other Apple devices, interest-free, is a good first step.

Apple’s iPhone sales have largely held steady so far in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, but the full economic impacts on Apple’s hardware business related to the crisis may have yet to be seen. The new interest-free financing offer is an acknowledgment that, for some customers, access to Apple’s devices may have gotten out of reach.

Bloomberg had previously reported on Apple’s plans to expand its monthly installment program.

Facebook brings payments to WhatsApp, starting in Brazil

Facebook brings payments to WhatsApp, starting in Brazil

Facebook has brought payments to WhatsApp for the first time, starting in Brazil.

The new feature is powered by Facebook Pay, a unified payment service first introduced back in 2018. The company said at the time that it planned to enable the service across its suite of apps, including WhatsApp and Instagram. News emerged earlier this year that WhatsApp payments were going to launch first in India, after gaining approval from local regulators, but it has remained in private beta since then. The Brazil launch marks the first full country-wide launch for payments in WhatsApp and signals a new way for Facebook to monetize the messaging app, after having struggled to do so since acquiring it for around $19 billion back in 2014.

Facebook Pay is currently available in about 40 countries around the world, though it’s limited to the main Facebook app in most markets. The only exceptions to this are in the U.S., where it’s also available through Facebook’s Messenger app, and now Brazil, where it’s also available in WhatsApp. A WhatsApp spokesperson confirmed that the payments feature will arrive in more countries in the future, though they didn’t divulge when or where the rollout may head next.

From today, anyone in Brazil can use WhatsApp to buy goods from local businesses or send money to friends and family without leaving the app — with support for debit or credit cards. Support is initially limited to Banco do Brasil, Nubank, and Sicredi on both the Mastercard and Visa payment networks.

Samsung’s 5G A71 will be released in US starting on June 19th

Starting with T-Mobile and Sprint, with Verizon and others to follow

Samsung’s 5G A71 will be released in US starting on June 19th

Samsung’s Galaxy A71 5G, which sits at the top of its midrange A-series lineup, will launch in the US starting on June 19th, the company announced today. Initially, the handset will be available from T-Mobile, Sprint, and, but Samsung says that the phone will be coming to AT&T, Verizon, and other carriers later this summer along with an Unlocked by Samsung model.

Announced back in April with a price tag of $599.99, The Samsung Galaxy A71 5G is the step-up model compared to the Galaxy A51 5G. (We reviewed the LTE version of the A51 last month.) The biggest difference between the A51 5G and the A71 5G is their main cameras, which is reassuring given the issues we had with the camera on the Galaxy A51 in our review. Both have a quad-camera array — including 12-megapixel ultrawide cameras, 5-megapixel depth cameras, and 5-megapixel macro cameras — but the A71’s main camera has a resolution of 64 megapixels, compared to the 48-megapixel sensor on the Galaxy A51.
"The A71 has a 64-megapixel main sensor"

The A71 also has a slightly bigger 6.7-inch hole-punch OLED display compared to the 6.5-inch screen on the A51, and it can be charged slightly faster at 25W compared to 15W for the A51 5G — although their batteries are both 4,500mAh.

In the US, the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G will use a Snapdragon 765G processor, comes with 128GB of storage (expandable with up to 1TB via microSD), and has 6GB of RAM. Samsung says the Galaxy A71 will support sub-6GHz 5G with its initial launch on T-Mobile and Sprint, and it said that it will have more information about mmWave support later this summer when the device is scheduled to release on Verizon, AT&T, and as an unlocked model.

Correction: This post originally said that the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G is powered by an Exynos 980 processor. It will actually be powered by a Snapdragon 765G processor in the US. We have updated our post to reflect this and regret the error.

Mysterious hacker returns £20m in crypto-currencies after 'stealing' it from Chinese trading platform dForce

 Mysterious hacker returns ?20m in crypto-currencies after

A mysterious hacker has reportedly returned £20million worth of stolen funds back to a Chinese crypto-currency exchange platform dForce. According to the founder of dForce, the sum of $25million (£20million) funds in a variety of crypto-currencies was illegally drained from the trading site on Sunday.

The mysterious web attacker returned all the crypto money two days after he stole it. The platform founder Mindao Yang wrote a blog post shortly after the attack took place on April 19.

He explained that the attacker was able to withdraw funds by manipulating the system to falsely increase the amount of crypto-currencies in their account and draining it all before the balance is updated, according to an analysis from PeckShield.  'The hacker(s) have attempted to contact us and we intend to enter into discussions with them,' Yang stated.  'We are doing everything in our power to contain the situation,' He continued. 'This attack not only harmed our users, our partners, and my co-founders, but also me personally. My assets were stolen in this attack, too.' Yang wrote.

In a separate post, Yao revealed that 'nearly all of the stolen funds have been recaptured'. 'It's with great relief that I report that nearly all of the stolen funds have been recaptured through the efforts collaboratively made by our partners, law enforcement, investors, the community, and our team members,' Yang wrote.
