A local teenager, Khalil-ur-Rahman Afghan, says he has invented a gadget that could be used to foil terror attacks from a distance.
He said his gadget, which is much like a jamming device, works from 300 meters away, while a similar, foreign product, works only up to 100 meters away.
The 17-year-old boy urged government to help him to improve his invention and introduce it to the security organizations.
Afghan has made the gadget from computer and bicycle parts.
“The gadget weighs 1.5 kilograms and can foil a suicide vest which works on a circuit system. It costs $7,000 USD but the same gadget made in America costs $20,000 USD,” he said.
He said his gadget is more efficient than the one that is used by U.S troops in Afghanistan.
According to him, nearly 10 of his gadgets are already being used by government officials.
This comes after a number of Afghan youths recently started inventing new gadgets which many say brings hope to other youths – who should stay and help build the country.
