On the National Science Fair Competition held by a private company last October 5, a 15-year old grade 9 student from Baguio City High School surprisingly emerged as the winner due to his invention, an anti-thief security device.
Jericho Villarico created a device meant to prevent robbers from breaking into houses of people through the automated detection features of the device through micro-controllers that detect fingerprints once the knob is rotated. As the device detects the input, it then dials the designated phone number to notify when a suspect robbery occurs.
The young genius took home a whooping P100,000 as well as his school due to the amazing invention. Aside from that, his invention's patent on the "Auto-Call Door Knob" has been officially launched.
Villarico came up with the idea after his family once ebcame a victim of a robbery.
