Health Tech.

Love me some gadgets that make serious strides in bettering lives. With that said, meet the Intel Reader.

The Intel Reader is a device with a built-in 5-megapixel camera that takes photos of text and converts it to audio. The sleek gadget is made specifically for those with dyslexia, senior citizens and blind people that have trouble reading anything from books and magazines to receipts. Younger individuals can even take it with them to school and use headphones so not to disrupt. And get this - converted book text can even be turned into an mp3 and stored in the unit creating your very own library of novels. But, regardless of how used, the real beauty is that a visually impaired individual does not have to rely on anyone else to help them read content.

Weighing only 1.4 lbs, boasting and 4.3” screen and even powered by an Intel Atom Processor - this is definitely forward progress. Now if the price would only come down from $1,500….
