Teenager from India invents device that can convert breath to speech
A high school student from India has invented a device that can convert a person’s breath into speech, to give millions of people around the world suffering from speech impediment a ‘voice’ for the first time.
Sixteen-year-old Arsh Shah Dilbagi has developed a new technology called ‘TALK’, which is a cheap and portable device to help people who are physically incapable of speaking express themselves. Right now, 1.4 percent of the world’s population has very limited or no speech, due to conditions such as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), locked-in syndrome (LIS), Encephalopathy (SEM), Parkinson’s disease, and paralysis.
His name is Arsh Shah Dilbagi and he’s 16 years old. Gettin tired of sensationalized “mystery baby from a country where people are brown does a science thing!” articles. Use peoples names, don’t act so surprised when people of color are geniuses.
Bolded his name and age in the second paragraph, but it’s true that that should have been the first paragraph instead of the second, and his name should have been in the title.
Once again, I can’t get my pics to show up the size they actually are, so I hope you can read these…..but anyway…..I’ve never worked so long on something, so I hope you guys like this. =P If I had the physical resources, I would actually make this. xD
this is brilliant! I made something like this years ago for Harry Potter….money and everything. It was a real pain in the ass though and involved sacrificing a real board to stick the pics on.
OMG, I miss a few days on tumblr (I was off getting hitched…LOL), and come back to hundreds of notes on Tomopoly. xD I did some research when I created this, and found out about getting custom boards made & such…only thing is, it would cost about $50 at least for everything. =/ Maybe I should look into it again, though…
