A 26-year-old secondary school graduate, Emeka Nelson, may just be on track to becoming a big household name in his native Nigeria after he recently invented a generator that runs on water.
Personally surprised that he was able to develop such an innovation, the non-certified young man has been attracting a lot of attention following this feat, especially since he has no background in engineering.
He shared the good news on his 1kva (1000 watts) portable hydroelectric generator on Twitter.

I’ve got something that will definitely interest you. A water powered electric generator. pic.twitter.com/QENmVokJa5
But that is not what makes the attention he has been receiving an even better one: the ingenious Emeka has also invented quite a few things too. The other more popular one is a machine that converts waste into petrol and diesel, reports the BBC.
The remarkable machine has been designed to be as portable as the hydroelectric generator.

The generator, according to Nelson, has a maximum capacity of 1000 Watts and its voltage fluctuates between 220 and 240, he told the BBC.
In a recent story carried by Legit.ng, Emeka spoke about how he had invented a machine that can transform waste to petrol, diesel as well as into tiles and roofing sheets.
