ImageAs we age, our brain starts to slowly lose our capacity for memorising things. When seniors have other debilitating neurological disorders or diseases such as Alzheimer’s or dementia, the function of memory may become increasingly problematic. We developed a memory aid for the people suffering from memory disorders like dementia, and Alzheimer’s. We aimed to build a memory aid device that recognizes people and plays back important snippets of conversations with those people. The device will take a snapshot of the person, match it with the users database of people he knows, and play back the last conversation and other relevant details of the person, thus helping the user remember person.
Ed: It can also be used by blind people as Survesh, class 10 had suggested in IGNITE competition at NIF ( http://www.nif.org.in/ignite/ignite%2012%20booklet.pdf)
