To help the visually impaired carry out day-to-day activities just like others, designers are coming up with new innovative products. The latest one by Kwon Ki Nam is the Credit Card for the Blind. When a blind person uses his credit, there is no way for him to check the payment amount. Also, after the card is swiped over the card reader, it requires the car owner’s signature, which becomes quite impossible for the visually impaired. However, the Credit Card for the Blind makes use of fingerprint recognition technology, which serves as a security device and does not necessitate a signature. The payment sum is displayed over the card with Braille. To help blind people recognize the payment amount, a voice recording is broadcasted from a small speaker, delineating the products that are purchased. With no hassle, the visually impaired can use credit card and have an enjoyable shopping.
