Statistics show how the younger generation are among the most technologically, savvy of citizens. Gadgets are top of the list for today’s tech-savvy kids and it might be the reason why they are very innovative and think out of the box. For this genius M’sian boy, he’s literally thinking out of the box.
Recently, a tweet about a boy who created a powerbank out of a box has gone viral with over 11,000 retweets and 9,000 likes. How is it possible that a 14-year-old boy seems to understand the technical concepts his parents or grandparents can’t even fathom? Did he learn out of curiosity?
1. “I want a powerbank so bad, but I can’t afford to buy one”
His brother wanted a powerbank so bad but he couldn’t afford to buy one. As a concerned younger brother, the genius kid decided to surprise his brother by creating a handmade powerbank (made of a box). It might look unattractive but it’s fully functioning like a normal powerbank you bought from a shop.
2. Yes,the powerbank is fully functioning and can charge a phone
According to the video he posted, it showed that the powerbank is functioning and can charge a mobile phone. Using a 9V dry battery, his powerbank project can supply 450 mAh battery.
3. “This is my little brother. He’s just 14 years old”
Surprisingly, the guy behind the “powerbank box” is a Form 2 student (14 years old). He learned basic electrical skills from school and decided to improve it as his school project.
4. He’s born to be an electrical engineer
Most of M’sians were impressed of his capability to think out of the box. Some are very supportive and even shared some ideas on how he can improve it. A guy responded by saying he’s born to be an engineer and again, impressed that a 14-year-old boy has the creativity to create a powerbank from scratch.
5. The tweet blown up and even international medias are impressed
The tweet wasn’t just viral in Malaysia but also overseas. A few international medias contacted his brother to ask permission to share the tweet on their media platforms. Wow, that’s very impressive! The guy is blessed to have a younger brother who is creative, genius and really thoughtful to create a powerbank as a gift for his brother.
