Because of poor visibility due to water turbidity caused by planktons, suspended impurities, etc., undersea image enhancement has specific difficulties. More turgid water gives images more of a green hue.

This project is about using a different color beam to cancel the color green hue that makes pictures blur when taking underwater pictures. As stated by the client, when divers take a picture the green hue color found underwater will make the picture blur.

Red and green cancel each other as do yellow and blue. When red and green a mixed together the produce yellow, not reddish green. Further, when yellow and blue are mixed together they cancel each other.

Therefore by installing a red beam that can cover some diameter D, we can cancel the green hue. Then the combination of the two colors creates a yellowish colour. Since underwater naturally have a blue colour and since yellow and blue colour cancels each other, for the camera and human eye it will be clearer. So, this way the diver can see and take pictures without the green hue.

    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
