School in the US uses technology to help the blind identify paper money
November 14, 2016
A high school club in the United States has received a grant from a private university to create a device that will help blind people find and classify paper currency.
The US currency cannot be categorized only by touch. A $100 note and a $1 note feel the same.
The project is focused to find an accessible solution to this problem for people with blindness.
A wallet billfold device is being planned that will let the user know what currency has been inserted.
It would keep each type of currency organized and accessible.
