Finger Device Prototype Reads To The Visually Impaired In Real Time!

| No Comments



The FingerReader,developed by scientists at MIT, who created a prototype using a 3-D printer, can give visually impaired people access to printed words.

As noted in this article:

"The so-called FingerReader, a prototype produced by a 3-D printer, fits like a ring on the user's finger, equipped with a small camera that scans text. A synthesized voice reads words aloud, quickly translating books, restaurant menus and other needed materials for daily living, especially away from home or office." 

There's still more work to be done on the device before it can go on the market.  For more information, click here.
