«souvenear» is a recording and archiving device for acoustic souvenirs intended for visually handicapped people.

We - people who are able to see - collect pictures and optical impressions on our journeys. But how can visually handicapped people perceive their journey? And how will they record their experiences and share it with friends?

The two-piece life-style audio device consists of a portable recorder for acoustic snapshots and a console to archive soundfiles.

The integrated GPS allows a chronological and geographical classification. The registration of the files is also possible by speech recognition and key words
