Preservation of food and beverages is very difficult. One way of preserving is placing inside a vacuum container or seal. There are many types of vacuum seal but all of them are digital or run under electric power or motor. This is not feasible for home use because the price is expensive; its mechanism is complicated and so on. This device solves these problems. It can create a vacuum in a sealed container without using electric power or a motor which means it is manual. The device consists of a sealed container, hand air blower with two openings, two air valves and a balloon. And the mechanism is simple, first seal the container with a customized plastic bag which has an opening at the top and sealant at its edge. Next, attach empty (no air inside) air blower to the sealed container. The attach a balloon with the empty air blower. at this point, both of the air valves are closed. Then, open the lower air valve and suck out the air in the sealed container and close the lower valve. Next, open the upper valve and push the air to the balloon or the upper direction. Finally, repeat these steps until the sealed container is air free or vacuumed.

    I have dedicated my life for invention and research because not only I have big dreams but also it is my only way out of poverty. We all have a talent we know or did not find out yet. Mine happens to be inventing. I discovered this talent of mine when I was in second year student during my university life. Starting from that point everything seemed not important except creating new ideas. So, until now I have invented more than 50 inventions which are new to the world and the rest are intended for Ethiopia that will change the life of many people including mine. But because of poverty, theft and many reasons I could not manage to make it. But all that matter is I will never give up. I will invent until and after I become successful. That makes me a strong entrepreneur. My skills are aided with a mechanical engineering degree on design, production and sales expertise. You can find some of my inventions via
