Think of how Africa can empower itself using technology and the right philosophy. Now, meet the people dedicated to making this happen right now. We continue, from where the Chwezi left off. And we are having fun.
THE STUDIO (Project Okot)
As the first element of what we originally envisaged when we concieved of Project Okot, The Studio is a technology that enables anyone (including those with no programming knowledge whatsoever), to quickly design, publish and deploy real-world apps for personal, or commercial use - all at the mere click of a button, and currently, at 0-cost! The power and flexibility
our technology brings to apps development has no equal at the moment. Want to try building an app in minutes, with no prior programming experience? Let's show you how!
THE HISTRION (Project Okot)
To enable you to build any kind of apps, that can run/work anywhere, in the easiest manner possible, we built The Histrion. It is a general purpose app, that self-modifies to become any app you have designed using The Studio. You have already seen an example of the histrion at work in the test app, here's another example showing the same histrion having changed into something else. We currently have built a histrion for Android, and for the modern web. But will build those for WP, IOS and more...
THE DATA DIVINER (Project Okot)
Having given you the power to create compelling and powerful data-apps, we go a step further, and give you an auto-ready, user-controlled analytics dashboard for any app you have created using THE STUDIO. With this, you can not only view data being collected by your apps, but can start to mine information and insights from them, using basic or advanced techniques spanning explorative data-analysis to predictive statistics.
Also note: our diviner has been
built to be able to actually analyze any compatible datasets anywhere on the web - check the generic diviner for this. It also integrates our work on The Meliorator project (see below)
THE THEATRE (Project Okot)
Project Okot is very ambitious. To offer a full suite of self-sustaining, self-contained range of data technologies, we had to build something called the THE THEATRE. This platform, which is technically a Cloud Computing, Platform-as-a-Service technology, is the heart of Project Okot. It is where personas/apps designed via the The Studio are published and served from. It is also where their acts/data goes, and where the web histrion, and diviners both
pick their data from, and where they are likewise served from. So, basically, this completes the entire story of Project-O, and lots of planned features such as Machine Learning as a service, mean to power your innovations on our platforms, are meant to take place here - mostly behind-the-scenes.
For now, you need special access to directly use The Theatre, but, even without direct access, anyone already using any of the Project-O technologies is
somehow leveraging this already.
Music has been there since forever, and music albums have existed longer than us, but this, KIZINA, is the World's first album technology of its kind ever! We have attempted to build a framework upon which music publishers can create self-executing music albums - no external software required, no players, nothing but the album app! It can bundle audio, video, lyrics, bio, art gallery, chat, games, etc. All in an effort to give the fans a richer
experience while enjoying your album. Our friend, Nemesis Fixx, is the first to use this technology for his debut Hip Hop album
NuScribes.com (utility & service)
NuScribes is a community and meta-library helping shape the future of writing, reading & publishing of books for Africa, by Africans.
We are exploring new, better (cheaper, more accessible, ubiquitous) ways of helping our sprouting writers get discovered and published.
Our nu books can be read, in nu ways, online or offline. Explore deeper, to find out just what this all means...

The Meliorator (utility)
We have further added some really remarkable, powerful features like the ability to design, render and even save user-controlled dashboards! So, you can explore combinations of analysis that deliver the most insights, and just re-use them later. Those building systems can even plugin-in, and delegage many of the steps to their own server as needed. It's more than a plugin, it's fully-fledged analytics web-app, ready to plug into any existing system.
Docs & Examples Docs
XMark IT! (service,app)
What's really the purpose of your current business card? The XMark, instead, allows you to save all the info you currently possess on a business card (with just a fraction of the space moreover), and additionally, you can put your entire chain of services, your photo, YouTube, FB, Twitter, interactive website, a poem, etc into a single XMark - which can all reside in a single QRCODE, that you can print to an even smaller card (or
not even have to print at all). With XMark, using paper is just a choice, but you can have all the benefits of a biz card, without any card! Just
scan-to: share, call, sms, email, or view any person, any business, anything! No more boring cards consuming space and adding weight!

ThaSchool.com (utility & service)
ThaSchool is one of the best, yet simple school management platforms accessible anywhere online! This solution can help your school manage its academic & financial data, generate student reports, analyze academic performance across streams and terms, etc. It can be customized to fit your particular needs, and the curriculum of your school, and more modules can be added on-demand.

Not just an experiment anymore. TrolMote is a Universal Remote Control that allows one to define custom, arbitrary controls for remotely controlling just about anything that can be controlled via a URI. You could trigger a nuclear bomb with this thingie! Haha, not kidding!
Actually, we use it to manage many of our remote resources, hustle-free and securely.
Page Matrix (utility)
A tool for allowing you to explore more of the web in an efficient (and simple) way
Fortune Hunter (game)
Fortune Cookies are Awesome! So, let's mine some from these ruins! Basically, get to relax and have fun discovering classic quotables known as "Unix Fortune Cookies", by attempting to re-assemble them...
Ghost Messages (utility)
Ghost is yet another one of our experimental technologies exploring the use of occult cryptography for mostly esoteric purposes and fun. This one uses a form of encryption known as steganography. The messages can be hidden in plain-sight, and the encrpyted content doesn't have to suggest that it is so - a very potent means of employing cryptography in interesting ways. Ok, now go read that lol posting one more time - there might be something hidden
The very ancient, yet still present, science or art of divination, also considered to be one of the earliest means by which mankind was able to consciously tap into and read the contents of his unconscious (not necessarily internal contents), also has a tradition of those who truly read between the lines. Bibliomancy, is here revolutonalized, for modern explorers, who still understand the value of books - any written material that is. To the
technical, this tries to use true chaos - the atmosphere (aka. Random.org)
Yet another mind technology, and still, a subconscious-mind interface. This one is a rendition of the fascinating divination art, this time, aimed at the more visual diviners. The innovation is mostly in the medium - you might see it.
This is an experiment in letting you modify content on any website using special voice commands called spells! Sounds fun? Get your Chrome browser and mic ready...
Crypto is less about typical cryptography as known to the majority of people, and more about the relatively ancient art of encoding messages in occult ciphers. The applications of this kind of technnology beyond mere fascniation might elude those with not interest in the esoteric - for those who don't know the use of ciphers, consider hacking for the fun of it. Otherwise, it's dead serious.
Global Clipboard (utility)
Copy-Paste rules the World!
So the nerds need only 1 Clipboard to rule them all
With this one piece of software installed, you get the ability to copy something on one device and then be able to immediately paste it on another device! With powerful GPG encryption in-built, to ensure this is being done securely
