Asare Bright, 18, a young Ghanaian creative’s passion for electronics is rapidly gaining him attention after manufacturing moving cars from discarded objects including scraps.
With no formal education in engineering or any related course, Bright has constructed moving AB Yutong and VVIP buses and a remake of Kantanka’s luxury open-top Bugatti.
From Berekum Kato in the Brong Ahafo in Ghana, the young creative is using his rare talent to manufacture cars and other electronic gadgets.
He taught himself how to manufacture these stunning electronics and single-handedly builds his moving cars using scraps and plastics.
The Form Two Senior High School student reveals that he derives inspiration from real cars to build similar designs and uses motors from other gadgets to motorise his recreated cars.
''I love Yutong buses and I look at real cars to recreate them.’’
With his natural God-given talent, Bright is able to fix modern gadgets including sophisticated objects such as drones.
Asare Bright reveals that his first attempt at building a Yutong bus encountered obstacles. He said the bus couldn't move so he had to find a way to get the bus to move.
He had to use a motor from a hairdryer to motorise the bus to enable it to turn left, right and reverse as well.
Explaining how his recreated VVIP bus works, Bright said the bus has a functioning engine, remote and a sensor that can be used to operate the bus.
The bus also has a working light and fan that functions perfectly.
He said the bus is convenient and financially sustainable because it uses rechargeable batteries.
Bright currently lives with his father and assists him on his farm to provide food to feed the family.
The rare creative noted that accessing tools and scraps to build is his immediate challenge while indicating that he needs help to receive training in engineering to advance his natural skills.
Bright highlights his journey, future, how his recreated cars work and other inventions.
In 2019, YEN.com.gh reported that Hope Emmanuel Frank realised at a very early age that he could construct heavy machines including excavator and tipper trucks with wood, syringe and drip set.
Frank, 15, caught the attention of international media and their lenses captured his extraordinary excavator built with wood, syringe and drip set.
The young construction genius says when people chance on him operating his excavator and tipper they become surprised.
And the fascinating sight of seeing such master creative works by a young boy urges people to express benevolence by giving him money. He said he uses the money to buy construction materials and other stuff for his creative works.
