New tech developed in Thailand to help the blind
While pursuing an engineering degree from a Thailand university, Nuntipat Narkthong and a group of students developed a gadget for the blind that could help them in their studies.
Later Nuntipat with his classmate launched a tech startup, Visionear, to commercialise the gadget.
The electronic gadget has tiny cameras and headphones. It aims to help visually-impaired persons live a better and independent life.
The gadget provides them audio descriptions of what objects they are seeing or holding.
The gadget will help the blind identify different types of soft drink cans, pick the right color of clothing, let them know which bank notes they are using, among others.
