Pay by the cane

The 80% of the blind are acquired postnatally.
We suggest "Pay by the Cane" which helps the blind enjoy the cultural life by themselves. "Pay by the Cane", by embedding the RFID chip in the cane which is the sense subject receiving all information for the blind, helps the blind pay the traffic fee and pay for the shopping, and get the information for the product easily by converting the information of the product into the voice through RFID reader in the cane when purchasing the product. This function can satisfy the desire of the blind to conduct the cultural life and economical activities by themselves without any help of others.
