Koniku Kore – Nigeria

For Nigerian-born Oshi Agabi, the future remains unknown and is all about now. Creating technologies that solve real-life problems, his invention, the Koniku Kore has the capacity to detect the smell of explosives and cancer cells.

The tech-enthusiast, who obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Physics from the University of Lagos before furthering his studies in physics and neuroscience in Sweden and Switzerland says his creation can be used for security, agricultural, military, and health situations.

Unveiled in Tanzania in 2017, Oshi expressed hopes that it could be used as a more effective means of airport security to scan numerous travellers and also deployed in hospitals as the device is equally adaptable for use to identify different diseases.
