Developed by Joshua Sin is an innovative piece of technology called the 'Panopticon' device. Worn on the hand between the index finger, the thumb and the wrist, this intelligent accessory is intended to allow a means to read for the visually impaired.

Providing audio and Braille feedback with the help of a small built-in scanner, the 'Panopticon' device is the ticket to mass-printed text media that the blind would otherwise have no access to.
