Chinese developers have presented a concept phone for the elderly,called Elderly E Phone. According to the authors of the project, the modern phones,that are being offered for this age group, though, and are inexpensive, but they have very few functions.
In phone Elderly E Phone technology is used facial identification. At the top of the unit is a hole-finder, and next to it is A built in camera. To call someone,a user has to put the viewfinder on the photo for a person, so that person was connected to the hole. The camera takes a picture, the system identifies a person’s face and pick a number associated with that person.
Therefore, elderly people who refused to use the phone book in the mobile phone, because it was hard to make out the text on the screen and had to type every time the entire number, can now forget about the problem. Elderly E Phone – an interesting concept that shows how modern technology can help elderly people.
