The Voice Stick

Invented by Sungwoo Park, this cool new gadget is a portable scanning device that reads printed text and converts it into a voice.

The revolutionary new Voice Stick, a concept text scanning device for the visually impaired. As the name suggests, the stick when scanned in the printed letters, the OCR function recognizes the text and converts the information into voice. The voice is then read back and thus helping the visually challenged. It is a quite innovative and practical product. So whatever be the matter, like letters, E-mails etc, it works out to be a perfect solution and companion for the visually challenged

Just another proof that technology reaches and touches just about every challenge and every heart respectively!

Needless to mention, the Voice Stick has been the Gold Medal winner at the International Design Excellence Awards for new inventions.
