- A Senegalese teen, Cheikh Bamba Diaby, developed his strong passion for robotics from trying to fix his sister's locked phone
- The frustration in his inability to pay the person that would repair the gadget pushed him to self-learn how to fix it
- Some of his technological creations are independent motor car, motion sensor and a card lock for doors
The world is not only technology-driven, but technological creations are also getting smarter. Fifteen-year-old Senegalese Cheikh Bamba Diaby will be one of the people who could become major players in technology years from now, BBC News reports.
His passion for robotics engineering started when he mistakenly locked his sister’s phone. He said that in trying to resolve the issue without anyone knowing, he took the phone to an engineer who demanded a sum.
Unable to come up with the charged fee, he decided to go on the internet and make research, which he succeeded at.
Since then, he has been creating robots that perform different tasks. He made a motion sensor, a card reader, an independent car, among others.
In his interview with the BBC, he spoke about how electronic devices are always hidden from him because he has a curious mind.
“My father asked my mother to hide all the electronic devices because I was a stubborn and very curious child,” he said.
