Outline

The video magnifier is a tool for making it easy to read and write for those who have a handicap in vision. You place a book on a table, and this equipment photos the book with a video-camera, and expands and projects it on a display. Using this equipment, you can not only write a letter, but also can cut a nail, can operate a sell-phone and a tablet. Until now, people were observing only the function to read, so there was no positive device to writing. We took in various idea to the rise-and-fall equipment of the display, and realized not only the ease of reading but the ease of writing.
