Braille Scanner / Expiration date scanner

Braille Scanner
Braille Scanner

When people eat foodstuffs or use cosmetics, expiration date is one of the most important information. However, expiration date expresses the date only by numbers, not considering people who are visually handicapped. Braille Scanner helps blind people to know expiration date easily and conveniently by indicating braille to them. When the user moves Braille Scanner close to an object, it scans the date and then it prints out braille sticker of expiration date. The user can stick the sticker on foodstuff or cosmetics, so he or she can know expiration date by touching the braille sticker.
