Yasir made a switch and socket in his school days which can be turned on and off through a smartphone app. The smart application can also calculate the amount of electricity consumed and inform the user of necessary safety precautions.
With the smart watch industry predicted to rise this year, an inclusion of such an app on such a watch can make life easy for thousands of people.
The smart application can also calculate the amount of electricity consumed and inform the user of necessary safety precautions. Yasir gave a presentation about how the smart application works in his school.
Yasir has now started a company and it is estimated that if his technology is used in Britain alone, it can save up to 1.75 billion Pounds annually. The application enables the mobile to be used as a remote control using which light bulbs and other electronic devices can be controlled.
The young student invented this technology getting his inspiration from famous scientist James Dyson. The application received a funding of 20 thousand Pounds while Yasir was in school.
