LISTEN 2 PIC
LISTEN 2 PIC

“LISTEN 2PIC” is a device designed for visually impaired people to take, appreciate and feel pictures through their senses of hearing and touching.When a picture is taken with LISTEN 2PIC, it is transferred into image data and audio data. The set of two types of data are synchronized to create electro-generated vibration on the backside display. When you touch the display, you can feel the outline of the subject pictured through vibration. The color, texture and distance to the subject can be also expressed through the tone, strength and echo of the sound. It is an experience of seeing a picture through hearing and touching senses.
