DOES ANYONE STILL REMEMBER THIS NUL-MADE SAND ART?

 

It started this way. When they mine stones at Lekokoaneng, the throw away off-cuts which become an environmental nuisance.

NUL Scientists took that off-cuts and turned them into sand. Then they used a very ingenious method to turn that sand into the art on this picture.

Everything that you see on the picture is sand. Yes!. Sand!

The framed art was sold for M8000-00. But the NUL Innovation Hub has since stopped making the art, so please don't place requests,.... for now.

The machine is super! With it, the National University of Lesotho (NUL) effortlessly produces Mohalalitoe bar soaps, as the machine takes part in giving the bars a professional shape. It is based on the principle of “leverage” in Physics where you do more stuff with less effort.

“With this machine, Mohalalitoe soap producers get the work done in a matter of seconds per cycle, using just their hands. Plus it can be used by just about anyone,” said the obviously elated Ts’epo Lokola, the Lerotholi Polytechnic (Fokothi) trained machinist.

AN APP BY NUL GRADUATE MAKES IT TO AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IN TORONTO, CANADA

 

It works like this. When you are doing online banking, you sometimes get a one-time-password (OTP) for the bank to prove it is you. However, it may still not be you but someone stealing your money. “With this app, before the bank sends you an OTP, it first receives a face image from you to make sure that it is you to whom the OTP has to be sent,” says the National University of Lesotho (NUL) trained Mokhutli Letsae.

NUL ACCELERATION PARK

 

Before you ask, let us explain. These are temporary prefabricated building structures (mini factory shells) that can always be moved from one place to another since they are dismantlable, and they will be part of the NUL Acceleration PARK.

So what is the NUL Acceleration Hub? It is a component of the NUL Innovation Hub where businesses that have passed incubation are accelerated. Acceleration means the businesses are provided with bigger space, more machinery and more labor although at a medium scale.
