Microsoft gifts tech goodies to the teenager arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school

Here’s a look at what Microsoft gifted the teenager who was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school

It’s been quite an eventful week for Ahmed Mohamed, right from being arrested for bringing homemade clock to school that was mistaken for a bomb to being invited to White House, Microsoft, Google and Twitter.

It happened when past Monday, 14-year-old Ahmed, a fresher at MacArthur High School, Irving was arrested from his school after bringing a homemade clock into class to show his teacher. Later, he was taken into custody and interrogated by the police for building what the police call a “hoax bomb.”

However, Ahmed was released later without being any charges pressed against him by the police. But, this was not the end of the story. The incident went viral across the Internet with many of them supporting Ahmed’s inventive curiosity and even some thinting how “inventive” the clock was in reality.

While one hand, Ahmed was acclaimed as a hero, on the other, he was invited by President Obama to visit the White House. Also, tech giants like Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Box CEO Aaron Levie invited him to pay a visit at their offices in Silicon Valley.

To add to this, Microsoft is now showing some love for Ahmed. Here’s a tweet from executive director of the Dallas Council on American-Islamic Relations, Alia Salem, who throughout the past week has joined Mohamed during TV interviews.

He was gifted a Microsoft Band, a 3D printer, a Surface Pro 3, an Office 365 subscription, and much more. Not a bad start, we must say!!!

  1. Good job Ahmed! You dismantled an existing clock and modified it to look exactly like a bomb and now have every news source in the world calling you a misunderstood inventor! Better yet, you are rewarded with a 3D printer so now maybe you can create something that actually functions and not just another apparently successful and intentional propaganda piece! See you in hell, asshole.
