The fight against breast cancer is set to receive a major boost with a new and first-of-its-kind invention by a woman.
Bolarinwa Kemisola, a robotics and embedded systems engineer, has invented a smart bra that is capable of detecting breast cancer in its early stage.
Why she made the bra
The talented lady told BBC News Pidgin that she was inspired to come up with such an innovation after losing her aunt to breast cancer in 2017.

And in 2021, she was able to do a test-run on a prototype of the smart bra.
And the bra has small sensors coupled with its nanotechnology that doesn't cause harm to the body tissues.
She explained that it is not an undergarment that replaces the normal bra or is worn throughout the day. According to her, it is to be worn during the breast cancer check which doesn't last more than 5 minutes.

Man invents stove that uses only water to cook
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that a 67-year-old man had invented a stove that uses only water to cook.
PR Nigeria reports that the electronics technician's innovation was borne out of his desire to subsidize the cost of using gas and kerosene.
A YouTube video shared by the aforementioned media showed Hadi demonstrating how the water-cooking stove generates fire.
The talented man who had in the past assembled a radio transmitter as well as operated a community radio station wants relevant institutions to help him get his innovation patented.

He also wants collaborative efforts to ensure it is mass-produced.
“I wish relevant institutions and bodies can support towards patenting the project for mass production to at least help the without buying kerosene or gas to cook their food by using water,” Hadi said.
