Nowadays, there are various ways of communication, enabling us to communicate with each other easily. However, the elderly can't accept the modern communication method, so we design this kind of fax machine for elderly. When you want to send messages to your family when you're far away, this fax machine can deliver your SMS or voice mail to elderly in the form of letters, which is a traditional and acceptable way for them. Moreover, they can feel the emotions deeply in reading letters which is much better than the electronic way. Moreover, they can better recall the old memory and understand that you truly care about them.
