He noted that aside from helping the visually impaired operate normally, the smart cane enables them cut overreliance on strangers who can misdirect them.

Mr Muthungu said from a tender age, he was always mesmerized by innovations. “I started innovating in 2006 when I created electric power from bio-gas from pit latrine. I was in standard seven,” said the innovator who was an incubatee at the Kenya ICT Authority. “Since then, I have been able to develop other innovations to date.” At 25, he was over 15 innovation rewards in his name including the Aspiring Inter-Varsity Innovator Award 2018 and finalist of the American Society for Mechanical Engineering Innovation Showcase in 2018.
