Freddie Figgers: The millionaire tech inventor who was ‘thrown away’ as a baby

He started out providing services in rural areas of north Florida and southern Georgia, not far from Quincy, and the company has steadily grown. In 2014, Freddie launched a smartphone, the Figgers F1, with a device that detects motion and switches to “safe mode” above 10mph, preventing people from texting while driving. The Figgers F3, which went on sale in 2019, contains a chip designed to enable wireless charging whenever the phone is within five metres of a “super base charger” – a device that has been awaiting approval by the FCC.
