2011 年 5 月 4 日 水曜日

  Do you know an artificial limb ? An artificial limb is type of prosthesis that replaces a missing extremity, such as arms or legs. The type of artificial limb is determined largely by the extent of an amputation or loss and location of the missing extremity.  Artificial limb may be needed for a variety of reasons, including disease, accident, and congenital defects.  In recent years, new plastics and other materials, such as carbon fiber, have allowed artificial limb stronger and lighter. With advanced in modern technology, the creation of life-like limb made from silicone or PVC, has been made possible. Thank you very much for kind attention.

Seen eyes

      I will tell you the machine, named “Personal Reader”. Raymond Kurzweil who found Kurzweil AI invented “Personal Reader” in 1988.  It helps blind people to read texts.

      This tool has two special points.  First, Kurzweil used Optical Character Recognition called OCR.  OCR can read print or handwriting texts in.  So, “Personal Reader” read the text out loud.  Second, this machine is portable and operating solely.  This was very rare.  Then, this was not able to be made from the other companies.

      This product is improved, and the kind has increased.  In these days, it costs $21,000.  Now, they are more reasonable.  Those technologies must change the sight handicapped person’s life for the better in the immediate future.
