Invention! Namibian student makes phone
Namibian student has invented a phone which does not need a sim card or airtime to make calls.
The grade 12 student [ the equivalent of SHS 3 in Ghana] is a student of the Abraham Iyambo Secondary School in the Ohangwena Region of the country.
The boy, Simon Petrus built the phone with parts from an old television and a telephone and said the invention only uses the radio system.
the device also has features like an electric light bulb, a fan and a socket for its charger, attached to the large box it is housed in.
The phone is less likely to be in your pocket anytime soon as the product is still very huge.
Simon Petrus won a gold medal at a national science competition last year. He has become a household name in the southern African country for his many designs.
