Blind Helper: the kit that assists blind people in their everyday activities

Practical and beneficial technology that will improve the lives of many people

Technology that is practical, useful, and directed toward contexts where concrete help is needed is that which often gives the greatest confidence in the possibility of making the kind of real progress that until recently was unthinkable.

Blind Helper Voice which is a speech synthesizer that connects to various commonly used instruments and devices, such as clinical thermometers, scales, and others, specifically designed to interact with those who cannot see. Blind Helper Voice is a project conceived and realized by a group of students at the IIS Rita Levi Montalcini in  Acqui Terme, in the province of Alessandria (Italy).

These young Italian makers have developed, in addition to Voice, also Blind Helper Braille, an economic Braille printer made for scholastic use employing 3D technology, as well as an audiobook reader, an electronic dropper for medicines, an acoustic keychain, and a light detector. Both projects are based on easy to use Arduino software and hardware which are fundamental for making daily actions simple and safe for individuals who are blind or visually impaired.
