Shape Recognition Ring / Social Impact

Shape Recognition Ring
Shape Recognition Ring

It is difficult for a blind person to identify an item accurately and quickly in life.
This is a shape recognition ring for the blind.A blind person wears the ring on his index finger. When he touches the object, the ring will do scanning. Once it reaches smaller areas, it identifies the object and transmits the information to the blind through sound.It solves the problem that blind people spend much time identifying things by touching and improves the accuracy.
