How to buy drones in Nigeria for fun ( miniatur drones)


For a while now many of us have been hearing about these drones! drones! and flying electronics gadgets. But without physically seeing these tiny and now even drone taxies you would really may not understand what these machines do and how they function.
Think about normal helicopters that we see around all the times. But helicopters are very large to be compared with a drone but they are both driven in the air.
Drones you see in Nigeria now are being owned by the government and mostly people that normally travel to bring them here. The drones come with so many kinds of flavour, some are smart while some  are dull anyway.
Okay enough of the story just try and find out the meaning and the need for a drone.
So that said, if you are living in Nigeria and you need a miniature drone for fun and you have about $100 to spare you can simply order it online from Robotshop.

Robotshop is a Canadian company that supplies all kinds of robotics and embedded products. They ship worldwide all their products including Nigeria.
But the good news i.s that you do not need to be the one to make the order online yourself. You can use the services of

LearnMate Logistics so that they can make the order and take care of the shipping for you.
You can still make your order and use their US address to receive your item while they now handle only shipping cost for you from USA. Please note that RobotShop is not a US company so any product you ordered to be shipped to the US will be charged for shipping if the order is below $75. But any order up to $75 will not be charged instead that qualifies the US addressed  buyer for free shipping.
Please note also that the drones are not toys and should not be left for children below 14 years to make use of. The Nigerian government perhaps may soon enact laws regarding the use of these drones in the country.

Hardware level security for Internet of Things ( Secured online FPGA )


Billions of devices are expected to be connected wirelessly by 2020. In this emerging era of connected devices, machines need not only be secure but also need to be secure at device, design and system levels. The Internet of Things (IoT) requires diverse technology and specialised skill areas such as specialised hardware and sensor development, along with sophisticated real-time embedded firmware, cloud applications and Big Data analytics for massive real-time data into usable information, delivery of data to human-scale and human-usable platforms, particularly sophisticated smartphone apps. The IoT is revealing an important need in technology, that is, programmable hardware and I/O.

The IoT will soon be driven by field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-like devices, because these devices can interface with the outside world very easily and provide lowest power, lowest latency and best determinism. The IoT would interface with temperature, pressure, position, acceleration, analogue-to-digital converters (ADCs), digital-to-analogue converters (DACs), current and voltage, among others. Arduino and Raspberry Pi could also be used.

An FPGA can be considered a programmable special-purpose processor as it can handle signals at its input pins, process these and drive signals on its output pins.

The above system is very deterministic. An FPGA can interact with memory and storage devices through serialiser/deserialiser interfaces (SERDES), which also allow for Ethernet, serial or Bluetooth communication. An FPGA can, for example, take an HTTP request packet received from a wireless Ethernet component, decode its request, fetch information from memory and return the requested result back through the Ethernet device.

The FPGA could be coupled with an ARM processor to leverage higher-level software functions such as Web servers or security packages, if higher level of processing is required. The key consideration is the programmable aspect of an FPGA. In a typical development cycle, a supplier development kit is employed to configure the FPGA, while a printed circuit board (PCB) is developed with specific sensor/communication/display components, as required.

The IoT comprises at least three layers, each with its own medium and protocols



The IoT challenges

The IoT challenges include security, privacy, unauthorised access, malicious control and denial of service. A hardware-first approach with respect to security and implementation of necessary functionality on the systems on chip (SoC) level is vital for fully securing devices and platforms such as FPGAs, wearables, smartphones, tablets and other intelligent appliances.

In practice, the hardware-based platform offers a single user interface (UI) across factory locations, real-time visibility into operations and remote, cloud based feature activation. IoT devices also have long life spans, yet manufacturers are likely to stop developing and rolling out patches for a product once it reaches obsolescence. For these reasons, IoT devices should leverage hardware based security and isolation mechanisms that offer robust protection against various forms of attack.

The outside layer of this network comprises physical devices that touch, or almost touch, the real world, such as sensors (optical, thermal, mechanical and others) that measure the physical states of houses, machines or people.

There are some complete control systems such as thermostats, smartappliances or drone helicopters. The presence of these complex devices introduces an encounter with the IoT in the form of sensors and actuators, or complete systems.

Consider the thermostat at home. When we add an interface to it so that a mobile app can read the temperature, check for failures and change the set-point, it works automatically. This approach wants to, whenever possible, move control onto the Internet, and ideally onto a computing cloud and scatter tiny, inexpensive sensors everywhere.
Here, we eliminate the thermostat altogether and, instead, put temperature sensors around the house, inside and out. And while we are at it,
And while we are at it, we pull the controller boards out of the furnace and air-conditioner, connect their inputs and outputs to the Internet as well, so a cloud application can directly read their states and control their sub-systems.

In general, these wireless interfaces match the characteristics such as low power and the ability to sleep at very low quiescent current, long periods of sleep and short bursts of activity. But the interfaces bring with them baggage, too. These are mutually-incompatible, have a short range and use simplified, non-Internet protocol (IP) packet formats. These characteristics necessitate a new kind of device to intermediate between the capillary network and the next layer of the IoT, that is, a local IoT concentrator.

The concentrator serves as a hub for short-range radio frequency (RF) links in its immediate vicinity, manages the link interfaces and exchanges data with these. Because these concentrators are unlikely to have any direct connection to an Internet-access router, these will generally use Wi-Fi or Long Term Evolution (LTE) as a backhaul network, which then becomes the second layer of the IoT. It is the job of the hub, then, to perform routine work of a network bridge as well as packing and unpacking, shaping traffic and translating between headers used in short-range RF packets and headers necessary for backhaul networks.

Two different concepts of the IoT: connect to existing intelligent controllers (left) or connect directly to individual sensors and actuators (right) (Source: Altera)



Future trends

In future, we can expect vehicles with an increasing amount of autonomous capabilities to navigate roads and highways, and interact with each other, their owners and the IoT. Intelligent cars and smartgrids are just the beginning of a changing ecosystem, where devices, systems and platforms that were previously disconnected will become online.

Ultimately, integration of various IoT devices and platforms will lead to the proliferation of smartcities across the globe, riding on the new digital infrastructure enabled by ubiquitous connectivity and the ever-increasing bandwidth. Thus, it is important to realise that, just because a system is embedded, it does not mean it is secure or will remain so, indefinitely.

Therefore security must be perceived as hardware rather than software patches, with chip makers routinely forced to contend with a wide range of potentially serious threats including data breaches, counterfeit components and intellectual property (IP) theft. Apart from ensuring fundamental chip security during manufacturing, embedding the right security intellectual property (IP) core into an SoC can help manufacturers design devices, platforms and systems that remain secure throughout their respective lifecycles.

Hardware-enabled examples include device provisioning, subscription management, secure payments, authorisation and return merchandise authorisation (RMA)/test support. Embedded SoC security can provide a critical root of trust, managing sensitive keys for secure boot, service authentication and key management. The SoC security core can regulate debug modes to thwart reverse engineering, while providing chip authentication to prevent counterfeiting. SoC based security can also manage one-time programming of on-chip resources.

Fastest, most affordable and reliable 3G subscription in Nigeria 2016

I am not a fan of free browsing at all since the time of symbian phones in Nigeria.
My reasons are personal and not to be held responsible for my opinion in this post.
What really matters to me is data integrity and not the volume of data being used. I have tried many of the free browsing cheats used in Nigeria but I was never satisfied.
Routinely use of free internet based things shows you are not ready for any business and do not consider your data and privacy.
For me I personally do not like using free internet things.
Recently  when I needed to start FOREX TRADING on my mobile, my boss introduced me to the Airtel Blackberry bundle that works on other operating systems including mobile gadgets  that are not Blackberry.
I do not know why Airtel choose to name the bundle "Airtel Blackberry Unlimited". Indeed so far in this 2016 the subscription is the fastest, most reliable and most affordable data bundle.
With only N1500 for 30 days you get a total of 3G data volume to use on the Airtel network.
Computer users and Android phone users in Nigeria can use this subscription at full speed of about 1MBs on the 3G band for one month.
To activate this data bundle the code to dial is *435#.
to check your data balance dial *123*9#.

Please note that this subscription is best used on the 3G network than on EDGE/2G.

Pedal powered high speed bike is called Raht Race


Going to a leisurely bike ride is fun, healthy and productive; however, this can change when the bike becomes your main commuting vehicle. Something about open roads and having to share it with unyielding automobiles zipping by, that really takes the joy out of what should be a recreational past time. Well now there may be a way to get the best of both worlds with the RAHT Race. This human electric hybrid bike can go as fast a car, enables your body to power it like bike but has the stability of automobile.
Inventor and founder of Raht Race, Rich Kronfeld, describes his latest vehicle as a “world’s first highway speed and highway safe bike vehicle.” Short for Recumbent Automobile Human Vehicle, but basically the hybrid vehicle boosts the cyclist pedal power to increase speeds to automobile level (top speeds clocking at 100 MPH). While still getting a workout, you are able to keep up with highway traffic and the composite body of the vehicle shields you from weather elements. It is also designed towards safety featuring a roll cage, air bags and seat belts.
Inside the vehicle, you are can store a small bag or laptop, whatever you need on your commute. There is even a small seat if you care to take another rider, reducing even further a carbon footprint. Just make sure your second rider is not too large as you will be doing most of the hard work.
Powered by electricity generated by the cyclist’s pedal cadence, the Raht Race is the perfect marriage of workout and efficiency. Kronfeld is working to get this licensed towards being a fully legal high speed vehicle, as he explains the government considers anything less than four wheels to be motorcycle. The Kickstarter campaign is undergoing some updates but stay tuned to see if this Raht Race has what it takes to stay on the course.

Facebook as an Internet Service Provider in India makes internet affordable to the rural dwellers

A fter facing adverse reactions over its Free Basics
initiative , Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is all set
to turn his company into an Internet Service
Provider (ISP) in India. The company has partnered
with government-owned telecom company BSNL to
set up WiFi hotspots in rural areas.
Facebook aims to provide affordable internet —
internet packs as low as Rs. 10 — to the people
living in the rural areas of country. The company
has purchased Rs. 10 crore worth bandwidth from
BSNL for a period of 3 years, according to BSNL
chairman and managing director Anupam
Shrivastava. This Internet service will be provided
with the help of BSNL’s partner QuadGen, which
will be setting up WiFi hotspots.
This cheap WiFi service will run on an unlicensed
band of 2.4GHz which will provide a speed of
about 2 megabits per second. This service will be
provided in 125 rural areas under a new
Internet.org initiative called Express WiFi.
According to Business Standard, Facebook has
made a new software to optimize the data usage
and make things simpler for rural areas. To access
the Internet, the local residents can purchase data
packages from these local hotspots.
This news earlier broke in September 2015 when
Facebook announced that it’s piloting a new
service called Express WiFi that will encourage the
local entrepreneurs to set up WiFi hotspots in
various areas. “We help them in terms of technical
solutions, business model and marketing,” said
Munish Seth, Country Manager Facebook
Connectivity Solutions India.
This partnership has come amidst Facebook CEO’s
India visit in October. Prior to that, Indian Prime
Minister Narendra Modi visited the Facebook HQ in
California in September.
Facebook’s first Internet.org foray in India is Free
Basics, which isn’t performing so well in the
country. The company tapped Reliance
Communications to provide free Internet services
to people that allowed them to access some basic
websites. However, the program suffered a setback
as Telecom Regulatory Authority of India put it on
hold.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg realizes the
importance of India for his company’s business.
India is home to about 130 million Facebook users
and a key market for Facebook. As a result, he is
trying hard to connect more people to the internet
— and finally to Facebook. Thus, Facebook’s
launch of crowd-pleasing services like Free Basics
and Express WiFi in its fastest growing market
makes perfect sense.
Is Facebook really trying to connect more people
to the Internet, or it’s a trick to increase its
userbase?

Quantum Computers with super power already in the market and is beating the fastest PC you ever heard of


Canadian company D-Wave Systems has released its D-Wave
2X quantum computer. For those who don’t know, D-Wave
Systems is the only firm in the world that sells quantum
computers and it has NASA and Google among its customers.
Even after four years in the market, there is still no evidence that D-
Wave System machines could solve problems faster than the regular
PCs. However, with D-Wave 2X quantum computers, the firm claims
that it is up to 15 times faster than the existing problem solvers.
D-Wave 2X is company’s third quantum computing system to go on
sale and it feature more than 1000 qubits- twice the previous model.
If you wish to know more about quantum computing basics and
concept of qubits, read our introductory article on D-Wave quantum
computers.
D-Wave has compared its system’s results against an optimization
software running on an ordinary PC and derived the result that
machine was about 2 to 15 times faster than a PC. If you consider
the actual computation time, leaving aside the time taken to enter
the problem, it turns out to be 600 times faster. However, the
computer experts have called this test unfair as the D-Wave is far
more powerful than regular PCs.
New Scientist writes that D-Wave used a single core on an Intel
Xeon E5-2670 processor, but the processor has 8 such cores-
whereas the ordinary PCs have at least four. Due to more cores, a
processor splits up computation and produces results faster. Willian
Troyer of ETH Zurich says that the D-Wave’s outputs would come
down when compared to fully utilized chip.
Another expert in the field, Umesh Vazirani of the University of
California Berkeley says that other computing hardware might be
suited to a competition with D-Wave. He says, “The proper
comparison would be to run simulations on GPUs, and in the
absence of such simulations it is hard to see why a claim of speed-
up holds water.”
To know more about D-Wave 2X Quantum Computer, read their

NETFLIX in Nigeria and have fun watching your favorite TV shows.

Netflix has launched in Nigeria, and the best part, its free for the first month which is almost through.

The CEO, Reed Hastings, announced this at his keynote address at the ongoing CES earlier this month.

“Today, I am delighted to announce that while we have been here on stage at CES, we switched Netflix in Azerbaijan, in Vietnam, in India, in Nigeria, in Poland, in Russia, in Saudi Arabia, in Singapore, in South Korea, in Turkey, in Indonesia, and in 130 new countries.”

To sign up for your own account just follow the normal sign up tab on Netfix website and follow the steps. You can use your debit card if you don’t have a credit card or Paypal account.

I am particularly very happy about this. Little by little, the monopoly of the DSTV will be really broken.
Now that Netflix is in Nigeria, should Dstv, startimes & Co be scared? Do we have the data? Is it opportunity for ISPs? Questions on my mind.
Is the current Nigerian broadband facilities able to sustain such data driven service?
What is going to be that major challenge now since we do not have much Nigerians ready for this type of service?
Because for me to pay 8 dollars a month for subscription and still pay for internet to watch the movies will not go too damn well with the way my bank account is setup and managed.

Robots now help in fighting crimes in the streets of US

In the latest development from Silicon Valley, a Palo Alto startup called Knightscope has developed a fleet of crime-fighting machinery for a safer tomorrow.

The Knightscope K5 Security Robot has begun patrolling the streets to fight crime, and these robots have the capability to see, hear, feel and smell. These robots are cute and inviting to the public. “We’ve had people go up and hug it, and embrace it for whatever reason,” said Stacy Stephens, co-founder of the borderline cartoonishly named Knightscope.

“The first thing that’s going to happen is the burglar is going to spot the robot. And unfortunately, criminals are inherently lazy. They’re not looking for something that’s going to be confrontational, they’re looking for something that’s going to be an easy target,” Stacy Stephens told CBS San Francisco.

“They see the robot and maybe they move down to the next place down the street,” she added.



These five-foot-tall, 300-pound security bots’ control and movements are based on the same technology that power the new Google Self-Driving cars. The K5 collects important real-time and on-site data through its numerous sensors, which is then processed through a predictive analytics engine. The data is then combined with existing business, government, and crowdsourced social data sets to determine if there is a concern or threat in the area. If so, an report is created with an appropriate alert level and a notification is sent to the community and authorities through the Knightscope Security Operations Center (KSOC), a browser based user interface.



The units upload what they see to a backend security network using 360-degree high-definition and low-light infrared cameras. The security bots also have a built-in microphone can be used to communicate with passers bys. The units monitor for various “crime triggers” within a predefined parameter including the sounds of breaking glass or shouting etc. Once it is triggered, the bot then captures geo-tags, photos, video, nearby license plates, facial recognition, timestamps etc. which can help in solving a crime that was committed.

Malls and office buildings are also starting to employ the K5 units as security assistants. Last summer, 24 of these security minders have been deployed around Silicon Valley on corporate campuses and in data centers, and in one highly publicized event last May, two K5s patrolled the Stanford Shopping Center. The K5 is looking for mall cops or at least to act as an assistant mall cop.

In order to prevent crime by using robots, CEO Stacey Dean Stephens, a former law enforcement agent, came up with the idea to construct a predictive network. So far, he and his co-founder William Li have raised close to $12 million in funding from Konica Minolta and others to build on this idea.

While Knightscope doesn’t think its robots will replace mall cops or security guards in the near future, the company does see them as assistants to human security teams.

The startup currently rents K5 through Knightscope’s website. The pricing model is also expressed as follows:

“For your reference, we operate on a Machine-as-a-Service (MaaS) business model and our preliminary pricing for a well-equipped machine is $4,500 per month for 24/7 operations equating to approximately $6.25 per hour (!).”

For teenagers and other bullies out there who wish to kick or push these robots need to be cautious, as they may be shocked to find these robots can talk back to them, capture their behaviour on film and notify authorities about their misdeeds.

Internet of Nigerian Things (IoT in Naija)


The Internet of Things (IoT), upper case letter "I", lower case letter "o" and upper case letter "T" is an environment in which objects, animals or people are provided with unique IP address and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. IoT has evolved from the convergence of wireless technologies, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and the Internet. The concept may also be referred to as the Internet of Everything.

A thing, in the Internet of Things, can be a person with a heart monitor implant, a farm animal with a biochip transponder, an automobile that has built-in sensors to alert the driver when tire pressure is low or any other natural or man-made object that can be assigned a unique identifier and provided with the ability to transfer data over a network. So far, the Internet of Things has been most closely associated with machine-to-machine (M2M) communication in manufacturing and power, oil and gas utilities. Products built with M2M communication capabilities are often referred to as being smart just like smart homes where almost everything is automated.

People have limited time, attention and accuracy
all of which means they are not very good at capturing data about things in the real world. If we had computers that knew everything there was to know about things, using data they gathered without any help from us we would be able to track and count everything and greatly reduce waste, loss and cost. We would know when things needed replacing, repairing or recalling and whether they were fresh or past their best.
IoT is a data driven technology and requires broadband network if there must be reliability.
So here in Nigeria where issues are always a bit complicated in terms of getting an open sourced project rolling, who are the latest participants in the Nigerian data market so far?

We already have the Main One and Glo One optical fibre cables, Drones, Arduino boards, Raspberry Pi and many other open sourced IoT products. So my question is, who are the major players already in this Nigerian data economy and how do we move ahead and get everyone interested to be involved?

More Drones in Nigeria

The Nigerian government intends to incorporate drone technology into existing security systems for efficiency while also seeking the support of the international community to help combat insecurity of her waterways.

Drones are becoming a necessity both in the developed and developing environment. Though not practically in use in Nigeria yet but some have been tested already in the country by the NNPC and NDFC. The major use in the country is to enhance security of the oil pipelines mostly the Niger Delta region. We are yet to hear any public nor constitutional control of the technology.
Hobbyists and technicians locally can start welcoming this technology to help in increasing the fight for security in the country. Also I think this technology is also a lot of fun.
