iF concept design award 2008

e-Sullivan is a device for the deaf-blind. While people in general gain more benefits from new technologies day by day, the deaf-blind are relatively excluded from these developments. e-Sullivan is designed to solve this problem. It will give the deaf-blind more opportunities to acquire information through computing and this will lead to an increasing involvement in society. Its sustainable Braille technology with input/output functions helps users with general activities such as Internet, instant messaging, shopping, and reading like the non-handicapped. Also, it is very light, so that the deaf-blind can carry it around easily and use it to obtain a variety of information wherever they are.
