Nigerian software engineer identified as Helen Ugoeze Okereke, has designed a smart bulb that functions automatically.
She programmed the electric bulb to come on with the aid of human control by way of clapping her hand instead of standing up to turn a switch on.
The lady shared a video demonstrating how it works and she revealed that no other sound can turn it on except a hand clap.
Helen said she had to specifically programme it to respond to only her clap and no other noise or sound no matter how loud they are. She admitted that it was not an easy task to make sure the code differentiates the sounds.
In the video, the developer hit the table which the bulb was placed on to see if it will automatically turn on the bulb but that did not happen.
When she clapped her hand once, the smart bulb immediately showed bright light. She had to clap her hand twice to turn it off.
Taking to her Twitter page to show off her innovation, Helen wrote; ”Building a smart bulb that is controlled with a clap. The bulb turn on automatically when you clap and off when you double clap.”
