Ring-like wearable device that can read aloud text as you guide it with your finger - video embedded below:
The FingerReader is a wearable device that assists in reading printed text. It is a tool both for visually impaired people that require help with accessing printed text, as well as an aid for language translation. Wearers scan a text line with their finger and receive an audio feedback of the words and a haptic feedback of the layout: start and end of line, new line, and other cues. The FingerReader algorithm knows to detect and give feedback when the user veers away from the baseline of the text, and helps them maintain a straight scanning motion within the line.

For someone so obsessed with crediting the original artist, Workman, you post the work of someone doing the exact same thing, after the original well-known “artist” stole it from somewhere else.
Enjoy some examples of the original plagarist:
And always credit where it’s due! WTF, people, it’s not okay to steal other’s work.

Located in Brunswick East, an inner-northern suburb of Melbourne, architect Anthony Clarke of Black Line One X Architecture Studio (BLOXAS) had two key challenges when designing the Profile House. His clients had lived in the existing timber bungalow for over ten years, but the family of five had outgrown the two bedroom house. They needed more space and wanted an interconnected family-friendly style of living that also offered an indoor-outdoor flow.
Secondly, there were security issues to consider as the western edge of the site faces onto an industrial area of brick and corrugated iron warehouses - some in use, with others lying empty. Clarke responded to this aspect of the brief by designing a high boundary timber wall/fence that follows the form of the interior spaces while referencing the industrial rooflines of the neighbouring buildings. Rough-sawn overlapped Victorian ash timber cladding was used, and the finish will weather over time to a subtle grey hue.
