Moyinoluwa Adeyemi, a Nigerian software developer, has achieved a milestone by building a special android watch that tells time in Yoruba Language.
Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
She got a degree in computer science from Obafemi Awolowo University and now a software engineer at Swifta Systems.
The idea to create the watch came on a Friday evening when she looked at the clock and thought about the possibility of it telling time in Yoruba.
Before she came up with the idea, Moyinoluwa had to do extensive research before birthing one of the Yoruba Watch Faces models.
It should be noted that the Yoruba Watch Faces is a collection of watches that are built in a popular local Nigerian dialect.
The illustrations for the watches were created by @TheVunderkind where they portray a man and a woman in traditional Yoruba attire.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported about Moyinoluwa when she became a Google expert for android.
In a tweet by her on Wednesday, November 6, she said that she is the first Nigerian to get the position.
The new Google android expert said she is very excited about the new job and she will remain committed to learning and sharing her knowledge on the larger platform.
In another related news, Abdulhakim Bashir, on Wednesday, October 9, 2019, became the winner of another international competition in tech.
He won in the Artificial Intelligence category of the Startup Innovation competition which was put together by Dubai’s World Trade Centre.
It should be noted that the competition was borne out of the need to stir up the innovativeness in young owners of startups.
The Nigerian champion invented Chiniki Guard, a security application targeted at curbing shoplifting in shops and general theft.
“Chiniki Guard provides real-time updates on the activities going on in a retail store. It reports theft and shoplifting by analyzing the video feed through the Closed Circuit TV,” he said.
According to him, the application has the potential of stopping over 80% shops from avoidable losses that are caused by theft and dishonest workers. Bashir won a whopping sum of $10,000 for his novel app.
