Spot Stick : Detachable Device to Help Blind Person Uses Public Transportation in India

“Spot Stick” concept is a modular product that can be attached to a cane. This concept device has been specially designed for Indian Blind people. An Ethnographic research was conducted in India where there are 3 major problems faced by the blinds being identified. When a blind person uses public transportation in India, it’s hard for them to identify the bus route numbers. Due to miscommunication they might end up in the wrong destination, they face problems while crossing the road at night time and while walking in the crowded place.

Spot Stick concept features RIAS (Remote Infrared Auditory Signage) receiver technology that helps the person to receive the bus number and routes name directly from the bus. The bus has a built-in infrared transmitter that sends a directional signal to a hand held receiver which then plays the transmitter’s audio message through a speaker or an earphone.

While crossing the road at night, the built-in red LED light can be set to blink often, thus, making the person holding the cane can be easily spotted. Spot Stick also features built-in horn that makes a noise sound to alert other people nearby about its user presence.

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
