Kunal Ambasht an innovator with distinction
There is no dearth of talents in India. All they need to flourish is right atmosphere and opportunity.
Kunal Ambasht, a teenaged boy from Jharkhand, has developed a voice command device KEYA KI that can help the physically disabled people to operate common electronic home appliances. He is very happy to develop this device as he can now help his disabled father Kaushalesh Ambasht in his day to day life.
“I have achieved my dream by developing this device as I found my father helpless,” says a cheerful Kunal.
Imagine the world, where everything will be commanded by voice and one can easily operate electronic appliances just pronouncing a command. In our day to day life we come across a number of trying situations that compels us to think ‘how better it would be if we could control our gadgets by just giving verbal commands’.
Kunal Ambasht, a resident of Jhumri Talaiya, district Koderma in Jharkhand, has turned this imagination into reality by developing a voice command device that will accept oral command from a distance and can act accordingly. This de-

vice, named KEYA KI, will help operate common home appliances through voice command.
In India, it is commonly seen that students from big metro cities enjoy all kinds of facilities pertaining to their studies but those from small towns and villages are at a disadvantage as facilities available there are far from adequate. Nevertheless, oftentimes students like Kunal prove by sheer hard work that talent exists in the small towns also. All it needs to harness their talent is to provide them an opportunity.
And an opportunity came for Kunal also rather in an unfortunate development. A B.Tech by qualification, Kunal Ambasht faced the pangs of unemployment like scores of his ilk. Despite being a brilliant student, he could not find a suitable job fitting to his qualification and talent. Job was his priority, for the economic condition of his family was not that good.
He wanted to stay with his family as it was haunted by some serious issues. Luckily, Kunal Ambasht got a job at a local educational institute and started teaching there. But he always hoped and yearned to do and achieve something bigger.
In the meantime, Kunal’s father became physically disabled following a tragic accident. This sudden turn of events caused severe hardship for the entire family. Kunal always wished to help his father and decided to develop a voice command device to help him. The strong will power and unrelenting confidence helped to work on his project and achieve his desired object soon afterwards.
The device KEYA KI can meet the requirements of several purposes in our society, where so many helpless people can neither walk nor move due to one type of physical disability or other. It is also very useful for the old and infirm people, who have to depend on others even for menial task such as switching on or off television or air conditioner.
How KEYA KI works
The device is packed with numerous features. The most important feature of the device is that it works without Internet connection. It has so developed and designed that it does not need any Internet connection and can work offline – certainly an advantage in remote areas where Internet connections are not easily available.
A number of electric and electronic appliances can be run through this simple deivce. Appliances like television, radio, air conditioner, room cooler, washing machine, coffee maker machine, microwave oven, lights, fans etc can be connected to this device and operated just sitting at one place.
A proud Kunal says, “I am promising to bring more features in KEYA to improve its functioning.”
On the price side, the device designed by Kunal Ambasht is comparatively cheaper than most of the similar devices currently available in the market. Once approved for commercial use, KEYA will be available at a price of Rs.8000 only, while other similar devices of famous brands cost around Rs.14,000. Also, Kunal’s device promises more features and ease of operation than other devices.
