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.
Read the bloody caption, dinocology. His age and name are both mentioned.
What do you have the problem with? Is it the headline? That’s a pretty standard headline - had he been from New Zealand, or Britain, or the US, you’d have gotten a very similar headline (i.e.: “Teenager from Ohio…”). Calm down.
This is the one post on Tumblr that I literally will not allow myself to scroll past. Sometimes I dont even wanna reblog it anymore because its on my blog so many times, but I still do
