Zimbabwean inventor showcases his own drone, electric car and green generator

[Updated here to point out and reflect on what the real inventions or innovations are, according to Saith Technologies] 

We have just been to the Saith Technologies Open Day and a lot of what we witnessed has to be the next thing in energy and communication not just in Zimbabwe but possibly in the world.

Sungulani Chikumbutso, Zimbabwean Inventor

Sangulani Chikumbutso, Zimbabwean Inventor

Sangulani (Maxwell) Chikumbutso is a Zimbabwean inventor who has come up with various disruptive technologies that will shift the way science is working. In fact he says he has come up with the inventions that according to him, “defy the laws of physics” and to that extent he has found difficulty in getting some of his stuff patented worldwide.

Among the prototypes on exhibit today were an electricity powered car (Saith EV) that Saith Technologies  says is way better than Tesla’s, a helicopter (Saith Hex_Copter) that works on five fuels, Microsonic powered generator (Greener Power Machine), locally manufactured (not assembled) drone, surveillance towers, mobile broadcast communication backpack, intelligent IP Mesh backpack and household transformer that can multiply power a hundredfold.

We will be following up with Chikumbutso to get finer details about how his inventions work.

Here are some of the prototypes in pictures.

    Job Well Done! Kudos Chikumbutso. Waiting for more innovations from you and team…

    1. Empythead says:

      Look guys, all of you who are running to critisise and shoot down Chikimbutso, listen to me and I quote Ayn Rand, “Truth is not for all men, it is only for those who search for it”. Instead of going to see for yourself, you are busy spewing out vitriol of the magnitude of Mount Krakatoa when it erupted ages ago. Because your barains are lazy to take the next step in development does not mean everything else is impossible. Yes you may not believe it all this young men is doing is possible, even multiplying power, why, even Nikola Tesla, the greatest minds of them all, was able to showcase cordless electricity lighting a room! When he invented the AC electric current generator that he suffered the same dose of hate and ridicule that you are now throwing at Chikumbutso!

      Kwanai mhani!

      To Chikumbutso I say, soldier on! Don’t listen to dimwits who want to pull you down. and patent your inventions lest your ideas are stolen! by unscrupulous people!

    Well done his car looks modern as well may u expand on ur piece please and elaborate in what way his electric car is better than tesla….we need more innovation in this region…kudos to the fellow…mmmmm jus wondering though care to share where he acquired the capital…this is quite a capital intensive venture…

    1. Peter says:

      In a separate article they techzim has indicated Pastor Teddy as the funder of this venture.

    2. Walter says:

      and l quote, “Dr Almeida owns one of the biggest energy companies in Angola under the Bongani Group. He bought into Maxwell’s vision and contributed over $500,000 seed money desiring no return for his investment. No documents signed, just a stern warning to use the money wisely. Eventually when the Greener Machine was eventual completed in he invited Dr Almeida to take up equity in Saith Technologies.”

    better than a tesla? the speedometer only goes up to 80kph! would be interesting to see some real facts on this car though, battery charging time etc…

    1. Themba says:

      Yes better than Tesla this car does not need to be recharged the Spedo is 90.kph because this was the proto. The next one on design now is high speed.

    2. Iniwo hangu says:

      very interesting how a product designed and developed by Zimbabweans turns out to be a left handed vehicle in a right handed vehicle nation. Design flaw could it be? unintentional perhaps?

      1. macd chip says:

        Well noted!

        It just shows that he it was never his original manufacture invention

      2. fourwallsinaroom says:

        I was thinking the exact same thing. This guy seems to just be branding products already on the market. Ask google.

        1. kilotango says:

          sounds like another GTEL story .. made in zimbabwe, but imported from elsewhere

      3. mapogo says:

        um so happy this it happening in zim. this will change our lives pakuti zvicha dzikisa maprices ezvese. maproduction cost ove very low close to china’s such that we become a conducive ground for a lot more world wide companies to come produce in zim and export. zvinhu zvoto chinja.

      4. mapogo says:

        i hav bin researching on fuelless energy generation for ten yrs now and apparently have developed some thing that um polishing up. during research i picked up that the Chinese and Americans have some inventions along thoz lines and rilly worked but the problem is that their gvt do not suport fuelless energy. so this guy noticed a weakness and were there was nid ………. the luk of chinese technology

      5. Peter says:

        He was responsible for the invention of the system upon which the car runs and not the manufacture of the body kits.

      6. strategist says:

        Was going to pass the same comment….left hand for zimbabweans.Work looks too polished for light machinery.

  11. Taurai B says:

    As usual no reasearch or even googling was done before posting this article. These “invented” products are good quality finished products which would have required some sort of expensive lab to complete to such a professional finish. Classic case of import a Chinese product, brand it and claim you made it. Does anyone notice the uncanny resemblance to this car http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/01387/byd_1387476c.jpg from this article http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/budget/5187184/Budget-2009-The-future-of-cars-is-electric-but-not-yet.html (Car number 7 on the slideshow), that I found after 5 minutes of google image searches.

      hi guru i nid to discus wi u a lot of things about the law of conservation being broken.oh yeh it can

      1. crazenergy says:

        Wel i wul lyk to advise u to go nt reread e laws of thermodynamics. Every system obeys em perfectly including Chikumbutsos. U guys u should have an open mind. Laws of thermodynamics r just ideal by e way and in reality ey are in aplicable to a combination of systems. But if you look at every system independantly u will find it is both electrodynamically and thermodynamically balanced. Go back to A-level physics guys nd chemistry. Be real noy ideal. Well done Chikumbutso

    Hands down, this is great..

  16. pachena says:

    We need to clarify the exact the extent of what was “invented” here. Coz the car (the body anyway) is a Chinese car called the BYD FO – google it, SAME CAR! So the exterior body was made by someone else for sure. But the BYD FO is a petrol car. Saka maybe he made the power train but then it must be clear kuti he made the powertrain, not the whole car.

    1. taraz says:

      That would still be an invention. When you are creating a new design for example, some circuit, for it to be called an invention it does not mean you are going to manufacture your own diodes, LEDs, gates, resistors etc. So long as you are creating a new function or process, it can be rightly considered an invention

    Are u saying Zimbabwe created this?..uuuuuuuum if truly so now u the power…..Energy is the power….

    1. Anonymous says:

      Yes Zimbabwe created the car, Max grew up in Kuwadzana and he said during the open day that he was working on these projects since 1999. i was at the open day. He did not only do a car. He also did Power generating machine. A hybrid helicopter and many other exciting products

      1. Eliphas says:

        The guy claims he build these from scratch – where? Do you guys understand how cars are made? This car is the BYD from China. We just need to know what he invented. Also those components on the drone cannot be made in Zim, with all that fibercarbon etc. So we need to know his contribution to those products.

  29. Themba says:

    I’m thrilled at the level of ingenuity coming from Africa. We need to be starting on producing our own right now. Sch projects require our full support as citizens of this continent. Don’t reinvent the wheel but if u can improve it, yes u are adding great value. Our continent is experiencing socio economic upheavals because we do not produce goods, instead we consume what the world produces out of our own inputs. Even the nuclear energy infrastructure that the South African government wants should be designed and build by Africans. Yes, overseas experts will be brought in as partners, but it should largely be an African Project. lets walk the talk. Well done everyone behind these innovations. Aluta continua.

  30. Zigzaya says:

    And….. the pentecostal peeps have taken over the comments! What, with their blessings, spirits, pastors, everything BUT common sense.

    When the dust settles (it always does), someone will have egg on their face.

    This looks like chinese goods that were modified in zim. Or, at best assembled in zim.

    1. Dat Guy says:

      U are so right. No one did any research. Chinese product branded as his. What a farce. If it was made by Zim for zim, why is the car left had drive LOL!!!

    2. guga says:

      taura hako iwa, zvakazara pa ali baba izvo. these are not inventions at all. i you were making a car for zimbabwe would you make it left hand drive.

      This dude seems to me like a fraud, unless he specifies his own inventions on the products. I am with him if he says he designed certain things and assembled. Quest and WMMI are doing that.

  32. Iniwo hangu says:

    I think we need a more technically oriented article on these inventions because through research so far the invention seems to be re branding the products. may the author please give us a better follow up. what technologies have been introduced to these existing devices belong to our fellow brother so we may give credit where it is accorded.

      Isu tanga tiriko we have no doubt, its always the case that Africans don’t believe in themselves. This guy has broken new ground. His inventions can not be matched at this point. He said in his presentation there are pictures they were taking showing each and every stage of the products.

    To good to be true….

    How can you invent so many things at once or in the same decade?

    Even the greatest inventors were able to do one thing and do it very well.

    Im just not buying it….

    1. Iniwo hangu says:

      i agree invention is not a joke if its a piece of tech he invented and added to the devices we need to have this clarified lest people become fraudsters by not giving recognition where its due.

  37. Anonymous says:

    According to the information given at the presentation. The Power Machine evolved through the years. It started as 150 watt to 1200 watt machine, then to what it is half megawatt. All this starting from 1999. The vehicle started in 2003. According to him. funding was an issue. But a good samaritan showed up and given him $500 000 as gift for his projects. He had taken all these years working on the project but money was limiting him. Another men helped him with some money, but when he could no longer manage thats when the projects stopped the $500 000 he got plus some money he earned on some of his personal consultants he managed to bring these projects to where they are. I listened carefully during the presentation. Asked some of the guys wearing T/Shirts story was consistant. I know its hard to believe especially when its coming from a form two drop out. But look the guy is not talking theory, go and see it yourselves if you have any doubts. There were also a lot of other media houses to cross check what Techzim have written. The doubt is expected because sincerely even when i attended the presentation, what i saw is not what was on my mind buy there is proof to remove any doubt.

    1. Dwayne Williams says:

      Seeing is okay, but it important to observer and understand. If I have a presentation with a Galaxy S6 I claim to have designed and built, are you gonna believe me simply because you saw and touched it?

  38. Iniwo hangu says:

    The product design and spec resemblances to BYD are just shocking, the car and the green energy plant are all similar to BYD products from china. are we saying China ripped off this guy of his designs? I would love to interview this guy and ask the simple questions like why is your car left handed yet you designed it for Zimbabwe? Gtel designed a phone fit for the zim market and pocket, they never claimed its an invention but rather an innovation. simply put together pieces already in existence to fit our local market and yes we applaud, appreciate and consume their product. I am for the drive of being inventors and innovators in Zimbabwe, its a passion which. our educational institutes i feel let us down in this field as the whole curriculum lack in encouraging inventive thinking. at this point Zim market is filled with product simply flown from outside and rebranded i belive we are smart enough to start and finish a product here in zim. I am not trying to be negative here i need answers thats all. i would appreciate it if Victor would make a follow up on this issue and give us a more tech based article on these inventions and also an explanation on the BYD resemblances.

    1. Anonymous says:

      I see your point, i was missing your argument. What he was saying at the presentation is: The innovation is the Microsonic devise in both the car and the generator. He specified that there are other components on the Green Machine that are imported and also the car. So the Innovation fro what i understood is not on the body of the car but on the engine. He also specified that the Greener power Machine contains other parts bought from other vendors, i remember he mentioned one of the companies were he bought some of the components. If i got him well the invention is what drives the vehicle which he calls Micro sonic device. This is common in car manufacturing, sometime the body may be designed by another company and the engine by another company. What i know he clearly specified was that, the body of the Helicopter is what they made. What they imported was carbon fibre. But they mixed it themselves to come up with the panels and the body of the Helicopter.

          look at the engine of those copters are mono fuel dear but his uses 5 different fuels, no one in the world can do this, it is a Zimbabwean stomb rider, it can only be done in Zimbabwe dear. you have info but you are ignorant kkkkkkk

          1. stomb rider says:

            Please explain for me, first why a helicopter needs six fuels? I shall not even comment on the complixity or absurdity of that idea. May it be noted that the is yet to be a certified diesel helicopter, that means, there are no diesel helicopters. There are two types of aviation fuels, so why would you need an engine that can presumably use six? There is no unleaded in heli speak. Had the writers of the article just asked one aviator, they may have realised that this helicopter is a fantasy. We wont go into the details of areonautical design and testing. Every nut and bolt must be stress tested. You cannot just pick up any nut you want. Lots of research goes into that, else the helicopter will disintegrate mid flight.

  39. Iniwo hangu says:

    Lest we forget a couple of years ago we had guys the like of Shangwa claiming they invented laptops called NHAVA which just died away owing to lack of technical support of the Chinese product they had simply re-branded

  40. Liz Berth says:

    I agree with you anonymous. The issue here is about the engine which does not run on any source of fuel and that the car doesn’t need to be recharged. For sure he didn’t invent a car cz that was invented a long time ago but the technology behind the car is now his invention. Same applies with the drone it’s not like he has invented a drone but there are some functions he has designed iye pachezvake. So guys let us support our fellow Zimbabwean man. Why always negative

  41. macd chip says:

    To be honest this is not an invention at all. To me it sounds like this guys is fronting some big company or companies which are waiting in the wings to reap rewards through a local name.

    Im failling to see anything new about all this. Inventions takes years, a single product can even take decades or a century to perfect it into a working product.

    This guy does not have an scares to show for his hard works, which makes everything looks like a russ.

    Where is the documentation to support his claims? Things like this you do not just dream about it and go straight to manufacturing. It takes long sleepless nights, drawings, designs blasted roofs from unexpected reactions and a lot of written documentation to keep your head straight.

    Techzim or Mukandatsama needs to restrain their reactive ego and start writing facts supported by docs not word of mouth.

    Otherwise techzim must charge this guy and his behind the scenes companies advertising they are getting from here

For your sack send me your contact, then i can hook you up, because i have the contacts of SAITH Technologies so that your questions can be answered. Believe me these are not overnight products. There were credible people there who testified that they have been walking with Sangulani for years.

      There is no time limit on inventions.You can take one hour or twenty years,if its a new method or completely new product,its called an invention.You do not have to show scares either.Did the guys who invented the nuclear bomb have any body injuries?.As of drawings and designs,you need that for filing of patents and not for product launhing.

Please learn from those guys of the NHAVA laptop who falsely claimed to manufacture laptop here in zim…Im not saying zimbos cant do it , but don’t take just any claim and tarnish you magazine by being uncritical.(or maybe it is a paid advertorial)..
    hahahah also that car .Plus you cant defy any law of physics even by miracles.A generator that can multiply power (watts) hundred fold??really?..what is that?.u mean if u put in 10 watts you get 100 watts..there is no way to multiply electrical power (watts) with a transformer or any other means.All transformers actually lose power in their operation from eddy current loses etc..some of the loses are dissipated as heat..Techzim techzim..100% credit for trying to hoodwink ….Also what really is microsonic powered device..This will not do any good to any young scientist trying to learn and develop in science here in Zim. Miracle energy?Whoever posted that article must retract it and first do some analysis then re-post it as a scam

      Brilliantly said..! For a technology magazine to write an entire article on potentially ‘world changing’ technologies and leave the reader asking fundamental questions such as the ones you have stated above, really puts this publication into disrepute.
      Tech journalists should have an in-depth understanding of the tech in question! you wouldn’t send a sporting journalist to interview a high ranking political representative because the questions asked and over all conclusion would be pug wash. I suggest Tech Zim urges its employees to attend basic tech seminars or at the very least have employment requisites greater than ‘can operate Microsoft word’.

    Edit:: you mean if you put in 10 watts you get 1000 watts or above?From a transformer?

    stfungayi

    The fact that no one has done that, its the amazing thing with this guy. He said that if you put 1 watt it is multiplied by 20. It means for every one watt you get 20 watts. The thing is there Vakoman totaura tichichema here? Endai munozvionera. Musatuma Techzim. The multiplying machine is different from the Greem Power machine. He said the Green Power Machine uses his invention called Microsonic device. The Multiplier uses Magnets. Its simple you can prove yourself, i don’t whether you want to give credit to Chinese again for this wisdom downloaded by God to a Zimbabwean.

      Where can we go to see such “miracles” ,specify address pliz coz the article does not even give the location of this “scientific wonder”
      This has nothing to do with god.it is about the lie that you can multiply electrical power.you can multiply voltage but you can’t multiply power .if you can’t get these terms right then you will never know when someone is lying to you about some scientific phenomena. volts ,watts,amps ,ohms etc.you will innocently be deceived to believe.But the fault is yours coz you don’t want to analyse.You want to believeee.if you have a relative who did some physics or electronics please consult them..
      But really the person who is at fault is Victor who submitted the article and Techzim for publishing it.Coz if these are the new techzim levels then the trajectory is headed downwards.Or maybe the article is for a new parody section ..we may never know…

    I don’t know where this guy is getting his cash or how he has gone un heard of for so long, but to develop and manufacture all of these technologies without having put even one on the market leaves me extremely skeptical. The investment required for research and development into just one of those products would have put any start up in the red. Never mind the production of those items! Custom built vehicles require a complete overhaul of factory machinery and a minimum order of tens of thousands of units to make it viable for a manufacturer. Arguably you could say it was a concept car – fine – but Zimbabwe does not have the manufacturing capacity to assemble, never mind produce a car of that spec (Mazda Willowvale assembly plant included). Before we get ahead of ourselves and are blinded by our patriotic hope of a local tech guru, I suggest this company is scrutinised further. I call on the University of Zimbabwe tech department, engineers or a similar Tech forum/organisations to put these products to the test before unbeknown investors plough their cash into what could possibly be another Zimbabwean scam.

    Thanks man for the good work. Its very unfortunate that some of our own guys are the one who are quick to criticise instead of supporting.
    People need to understand that in most cases we rarely have completely new innovations. Most innovations emanate from a combination of already existing concepts. Therefore i see nothing bad if our brother have combined existing concepts such as vehicle body etc with his own concept to come up with his electric car. The same with the generator and drone.
    Besides, assuming that some of his prototypes have some flaws, that is part of developmental stage and needs to embraced. How many times did Edison tried before being successful on the light bulb.

    What still baffles me is the fact that the guy simply invited the media only. Why didn’t he call engineers, scientists and experts if he truly thinks his inventions ie. the Car that needs no refueling or recharging, uses some unique technology. Better yet he could release his designs and technology in scientific journals. Then again the dude dropped out of high school, saw his inventions from visions and DID not study any electronics. Typical Zimbabwean con -man story.
    Without anything close to A-Level physics or Science degree, he says his inventions defy the laws of Physics. Which laws is he talking about ? Maybe his “inventions” already exists but scientist don’t think the technologies are sustainable or scalable enough to be adopted into the wider society.

    This man has done something commendable for the nation and it comes at a time when a certain Man of God has been talking bout this, in fact he has been preaching about this since 2014, “The Spirit of Invention”, I just extracted some writings from the facebook page of the church “””Throughout the Scripture, we see paradigm shifts occurring in the lives of the Bible greats after God revealed to them precisely how to go about an invention. For example Noah had a visitation from God, and was vividly shown how to go about constructing the ark in its entirety: “And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of :…”( Genesis 6:15 KJV) The Ark was a masterpiece, and it all culminated from an idea that God released to Noah. Moses too, built the tabernacle using a design he received directly from God, and what a truly heavenly design it was; “According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.”(Exodus 25:9 KJV) “And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.” (Exodus 25:40 KJV)
    That is the mind of God to fill his children with His wisdom that is spoken of in the Scripture:
    “I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.” (Proverbs 8:12
    Every new concept emanates from the spirit realm, in other words, it is a product of the spirit. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” (James 1:17 KJV) Your purpose will enable you to see beyond the boundaries of society and ensure you are a producer of a new product. In other words, it will be: A SPIRITUALLY INSPIRED ANSWER TO PHYSICAL NEEDS!””” You can read more for yourself my eyes have been opened by what this Ministry is talking about. I think it could help us all in evaluating this matter from a religious point of view… https://www.facebook.com/pages/Assigned-Ministers-Ministries-International/307449306033727

    Watch this video, we hear about the technology, we see the car moving (demo) and the engineer explains how the system works. You see, someone, not the engineer must test the technology and give reviews. These are my thoughts.
