iF PUBLIC VALUE STUDENT AWARD 2016

iF PUBLIC VALUE STUDENT AWARD 2016

An innovative guide brick for the blind that provides street names and directions by using RFID technology. The user can trigger the guide brick with the tip of their cane, and the brick will transmit information to an earphone. Thus, people not only know where they are, but also where they have to go next.

It was really exciting to get the iF PUBLIC VALUE STUDENT AWARD 2016. I think I am very lucky to win this award. We will continue to try hard and do our best.
