Finger Reader Technology

     Finger Reader is a fine example of how visually impaired can be more independent in places like a grocery store or shops. The reader is a combination of a finger device and Bluetooth Headset, where the finger-pointer scans products for barcodes and relays the product information to earpiece as audio instructions. Info like product description, price, ingredients, nutrition etc. is easily accessible. I think it will be a good aid!
       There is a small hole on the top of the reader to help you hang it around the neck, because a blind person may feel it difficult to find it again after losing it.

The Bluetooth technology deliver the collected information to the earphone.
