Creative Idea: RFID-enabled Love Card Reads out Products’ Information for the Blind


Designer Shen Ming has developed a new card which is specifically designed for the blind and elderly.

The card is called the Love Card. It is a RFID-enabled digital card which aims at helping the blind and the elderly shop in supermarkets independently.

The device, made up of biodegradable green plastic, includes a solar cell module, a large speaker, a switch and a link. Users may hang it around the neck. It is embedded with an RFID reader. When placed close to an item, the reader will read the RFID tag on the item and the card will “read aloud” the name, price and other information of the item.
