Imphal: A Manipur student has come to the limelight after the creation of a unique robot that can feed chickens without human involvement, sources said.
According to the reports, the student has been identified as Thiyam Nandalal, a class XI student of Johnstone Higher Secondary School who has created the robot using disposed household objects: plastic bottles, electronic items, phone parts, syringe and so on. The robot has been named as JON 17.
While talking about the machine, Thiyam said that it took around 20 days for him to make the machine and JON 17 is operational within a range of 20 feet from the controller. He also stated that the robot works on a time limit set and was created to feed his chickens. The robot also can even grasp a water cup just like a human being based on the action of the wearer.
JON 17 was created by Thiyam to showcase it at his school’s literary meet but could not complete at the stipulated time and kept in his school’s science laboratory, some sources informed.
Meanwhile, an amount of Rs 10,000 has reportedly been given by the School Education Director to motivate Thiyam for his invention.
