Further development on MoTracy (MoT) the MTN variant of the Mobile Money analytics solution from our lab is temporarily under hold for lack of funding. AMT though, remains fully functional.
VOSAC (conversational robots)
The existing methods of designing and delivering customer support using automation already proved their worth in many domains of business, however, our labs bring you a new generation of customer support robots that are cheap to deploy, quick to customize and ready for real world business cases. Meet the VOSA (Voice Operated Support Assistant), research on which is being actively spearheaded by our own resident researchers
at the lab. The VOSA Client, or rather "VOSAC" is ready to download and test..
QRLOAD is the best of the simple QRCODE editors you can find for your phone. It can be used to create new quick-response codes (QRCODES) from user-provided text, or via the clipboard, share the code and more, in the simplest of ways. It is a true-must-have tool in this day and age of scan-to-know, scan-to-install, scan-to-pay, etc.
Menuza Bytes (service)
Since 2021, Menuza Bytes, a food and drinks startup idea first implemented in Bukaaya-Garuga, saw the era of ICT-driven catering services come to the Nuchwezi family. Also, the idea was to create non-ICT income streams to support the research and developments at parent firm, Nuchwezi. With day-to-day business activities designed to leverage business automation at its simplest - via the popular website and official Menuza Bytes app. It is hoped that this venture shall grow to be a sucessful line of business on its own, and that its impact on technology and society shall create desirable side-effects
as was first envisioned by the architects.
266 TV (edutainment)
We once wondered what the most exciting thing possible with the newly established DNAP tech stack could be. Building a modern TV app turned out to be one of them. To most, 266 means Lesotho, however, to us, it means ultimated edutainment and techscapades from the NML! One of the examples of building apps by embedding a DNAP histrion into existing software.
Nerd Editor (utility)
Nerd Editor is the best of the simple file editors you can find for your phone. It can be used to create new files or edit existing files with little or no hustle. It can serve well as a file editor for those reading or editing source files on phone. Comes with an in-built file-name time-stamping feature.
Meta-Egg TRAY (productivity)
We are not trying to turn humans into egg laying things, but this here app readily serves that purpose! A mobile app that allows one to keep track of a stream of time-stamped strings, and to later be able to read, share, analyze or delete them at will. Great tool for paid scribes, diarists, journalists, researchers and more.
Thinking of those moments when you wish there was someone to suggest to you which of your favorite shoes to wear or which of your friends to visit this weekend? Well, if for now, you don't mind getting suggestions for things to do from Miss Random Personal Assistant Dramon, then make sure to grab this little AI experiment and run with it!!
Once you have yourself a copy of AMT, you'll never need another tool for keeping tabs on the most important figures related to your Airtel Money account. Additionally, you get a simple way to do basic financial reports, Airtel Money data backup and restore, and more. On the Google Play Store for Uganda only!
Some folks prefer gold to diamonds or rubies, so we have MoTracy for MTN Mobile Money subscribers! Yes, same features as AMT, but with a whole different experience.
Is it possible that at a future moment, MoT and AMT might get merged into a single mobile money analytics platform? For business users, that option is currently being experimented with, via a cloud-based offering. Contact us for details.
THE STUDIO (DNAP)
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 (DNAP)
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 (DNAP)
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 (DNAP)
The DNAP 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 the original Project Okot (now DNAP). 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
XMARK (utility & service)
The idea behind the XMARK project is to create a tool that makes generation of and use of QRCode based business cards dead simple. Currently, you can generate the xmark as image, print onto your business cards as the only content and using the XMark app or some barcode scanners, can export the contact info directly into your phone book or contact the associated contact.
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
IDENTITY! That's one of the most difficult problems to solve. The invention of names, or rather, language, was the GREATEST EVER. But, what really is a WORD? What's the meaning and importance of a NAME? This and more, are the sort of questions one can possibly solve by exploring the meaning of WORDS, by exploring their structure and explicit and implicit associations - knowledge which this little tool can help you keep at your fingertips any and all
time. To any but the dead, this app is a MUST-HAVE.

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
