(TruthSeekerDaily)  First came braille, a proven tool to help those who are blind read, now comes an improvement to this effective method.  It’s understandably difficult when the blind is tasked with reading something that isn’t converted to that braille format. Fortunately for those with impaired vision, engineers have developed this wonderful machine that will hopefully change the way they experience the world around them.

Introducing The FingerReader:

MIT Media Lab’s FingerReader is an impressive machine.Reader1

It’s a 3D-printed device that uses the attached camera to recognize and read text for the user.

The device accomplishes this through complicated image processing.

It is designed to precisely follow a person’s fingertip to read the text aloud.Reader3

It can even be used on computer screens.Reader5

One of the coolest features is that The FingerReader emits a pulse that warns the readers when they move away from the line.Reader6

Although it’s only a prototype, we can only hope this hits the market ASAP.Reader7
