Remember the mantra, “Don’t use the same passwords on different websites.” Now, here we are using the same logins (ahem) for apps, games, and websites. Somehow, we are foolish enough to fall prey to convenience rather than security standpoint. We are now seeing news of rogue developers taking advantage of this exploit and putting it on public servers for everyone to see. It’s just ugly.
One log-ins are easy to exploit for third-party developers. When you log-in to an app, game or website, they record your keystrokes and save it elsewhere. Then, they use this information to log-in to your social networking websites. They got your email, and they got your password!
Of course, I will not leave you without giving good advice. You should buy a good password manager for your devices that do not save in the cloud, and only for offline use. Password managers are necessities and critical for a safe digital life for everyone in the information age.
Have you seen a beluga whale? It’s the battery case for iPhones nowadays. I’m kind of sorry to see a great looking phone covered with rubber that is shaped like a pregnant beluga whale!
Now that wireless charging is a thing, maybe we could improve on that and make a battery that has magnets that sticks at the back of the phone and charge it. By doing this, it creates a more convenient way of recharging the phone, and easier to remove when it’s done. You can even put a logo with leather design which makes it more pleasing and elegant.
Now, beluga whales 🐳 are happy to see!
If only you could make a smartphone case with a physical keyboard that can be programmed as shortcuts. For example, when launching YouTube and Messenger, press on a single button and it will launch those apps at the same time. Or, program it to say a greeting on social media apps automatically. And maybe you could buy an item on Amazon at the press of a button!
I know there are existing apps that can do this, but physical buttons are much more tactile and provide you with easier access. Moreover, virtual keyboards just gobble up the screen.
For fun, why not include a selfie camera so you can remove those annoying notches, punch holes, and teardrops! And since it’s a case, it provides protection from drops, scratches, with water-proofing and wireless charging!
I would like to share this video to you. It teaches us how to create something which doesn’t go to waste, but recycled indefinitely like nature does. This is something we should strive for as an inventor.

I saw a Youtube video about a company who makes electronic tags that captures everything an employee does and collect data for analysis. Using the tag, they can track if an employee is working, chatting, sitting, standing, idling everyday, and they use this in their offices.
That idea struck me.
What if we could use the same tracking tags to know where, what your kids are doing. Then, at night we could just login to a website where we can see our children’s activities for the day and if they are healthy, studying or just playing games. The data can be represented by pie charts and graphs where we can improve the child’s well-being and know if they are sick, stressed out, bullied, etc.
Therefore, in conclusion, data collection is not evil per se because we can be responsible parents to our small children in order for them to grow healthy mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Happy New Year! Ain’t that awesome? Here we are surviving at least to be MORE awesome in 2019!
I challenge you to invent something that will change the world. A machine, a song or even a poem to make people’s lives different (in a good way). Be Steve Jobs, be Nikola Tesla, be a hero! Saving the world is no easy task, but at least we’ve enjoyed the journey towards progress.
Invent to prosper!
This is not a special water pipe, I’m talking about the ordinary water pipes that is used by a city to distribute tap water. And, this is not the small pipes around the house, I’m talking about the huge pipes that engineers made for water distribution in the city.
Why water pipes? Water is pumped through these pipes so we could use it. It uses pressure to push through water and uses electricity. So, how can it produce electricity?
Just like windmill generators, it uses the same concept on generating electricity by using a motor that generates current when the armature inside the the turbine rotates between two polar field magnets. Now, by using the same turbine, you can put this to apply it on water pipes to generate electricity. And, you are talking about 24-hour, round-the-clock electricity for the whole city.
