2.The ancillary function of it provides a cultural experience through the e-book function with raised letters for those who are disconnected to many cultural aspects simply because they are blind.

3.It is based on technologies that have been already commercialized in public realm: Super-mini motor based on PIEZO system, GPS, RFID, Front detection system based on ultrasonic waves.
