B-CAMERA / Self-shot Camera

B-CAMERA

B-CAMERA is a smart self-shot camera for the blind. It has only one button constituted by a series of round dots. Adopting face recognition technology, B-CAMERA uses the position of raised round dots to indicate the position of one’s face in the screen. Blind people can sense their position in the screen by touching the raised dots of the button in order to take a good self-photo. B-CAMERA automatically shares the photo to some social networking sites when the user presses the button. If there is a reply to the self-photo, B-CAMERA will read it to the blind through the speaker at the bottom.
