Even though invention and innovation both refer to the introduction of something new, they differ in the fields of business and technology. While invention involves creating something completely new, innovation involves improving an existing product or concept.
During the tech exhibition, we had the opportunity to witness both inventions and innovations. We observed the power of robotics: The possibilities of getting students to understand how robots work, operate and how they could be very useful in our environment or used for very interesting projects, and more advanced cases adding them to home architecture.
Just Land leverages a mobile service that was designed by J-Commit. It seeks to ensure access to transparent land ownership information and justice, preventing thousands of land ownership disputes in Ghana. The system relies on used technology to access land information. Upon payment for the information requested the system forwards the Land ownership information, size and location data to the user through automated SMS response.
We witnessed Rhemapp an app for creating cards from the Bible in its test mode. As such, we were also briefed about how an app is made and the various processes involved in making sure that it is user-friendly, interactive and responsive. We also saw the work of a graphic designer and understood certain concepts behind logos and designs.
In all, I think that this exhibition was an eye opener and we were glad to have had the opportunity to witness some of the things we can do with the little skills we have acquired as upcoming developers.
We are capable of many exploits. We just have to realize our potentials and make good use of them. With diligence, commitment and hard work, one can reach goals and achieve laid down plans. What can we create with our talents and skills? What if we could create something to make life easier for other people, to create jobs, to improve living conditions, to develop new ideas to solve various issues. Can we let go of the notion that other people should create so that we benefit? It’s time for us to stand up and back up what we can do.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.”- Marianne Williamson.
