Finger Reader: Read bar code with your fingertips

Always with a view to give maximum independence to blind people, here's an interesting new concept. Appointed Finger Reader, this is a device designed that people with visual disabilities can go shopping with minimal assistance. Finger Reader kit consists of two parts, a device with a sensor to put on the index as well as a Bluetooth headset. Specifically, the equipment used to "read" bar codes and the device at the finger scans to find the necessary information about the product: name, description, components, prices, etc..
The information is translated and sent via bluetooth to the headset so that the individual can hear them.

Finger Reader was designed by the designer Hansub Lee. The concept was presented for the competition Spark Awards 2011.
