Necessity, they say, is the mother of all inventions. In a country like Nigeria, where epileptic power supply continues to be a major issue, Ayokunle Adeniran’s invention offers an answer.
Ayokunle Adeniran is a graduate of Mechanical Engineering from Covenant University.
He has invented a pressing iron that does not run on electricity. Rather, this gadget utilizes cooking (butane) gas; cartridges which will retail for about N120 per canister.
There are 6 canisters per cartridge; one cartridge is claimed to last for about 2 weeks worth of daily ironing, or 40 pieces of clothing.
Adeniran currently works as an Engineer with a Queens, New York based firm. A working prototype of the nepaless iron does exist, albeit bulky, but it is yet to be mass produced.
