The digital age with its plastic money and digitized check out counters are great for the masses no doubt but you have to admit, they do shortchange the visually impaired more often than not. But Kyle Lechtenberg, an Industrial Design grad from Auburn University has created a system that will help the blind use debit/credit cards without having to worry about giving out their personal info to store clerks.
Introducing the all new Visual Assistance Card which lays on top of the debit/credit card reader and features instructions in Braille imprinted on top to help users pay for their shopping without divulging private info or depending on a friend to help them through the process. A surefire way to make monetary transaction easier, friendlier and unobtrusive for the visually impaired, the Visual Assistance Card certainly helps makes the disabled more independent and confident.
