DIA Electronics, selected for the 2020 Startup Ontact Overseas Expansion Project, introduced an input device for the visually impaired.
The company staff said, "For the first
time in the world, our products can be entered by using all ten fingers even
while on mobile. It takes very little time to learn the input method with the
same key arrangement as the computer keyboard. The input speed is fast and the
typo rate is drastically lowered."
He then continued, "In addition, it has the
advantage of being easy to carry because it is in the form of a smartphone
case. Since it can be used with a smartphone, it is easy to use exclusive
gesture functions as well."
He also said, "It is optimized as a
device that assists the visually impaired to use smartphones. It is also a
great advantage to be able to supply it to the market at less than 1/20 price
compared to existing information input devices because it was developed with a
focus on core functions."
Regarding the opportunity to participate in
the 2020 Startup Ontact Overseas Expansion, he said, "We are planning to
enter the North American market, Japan, and EU markets. We are especially
looking for distributors that can cooperate with governments of different
countries and organizations related to the visually impaired. If you are a
company that can perform marketing activities while sharing your product
philosophy, I would like to establish a long-lasting relationship."
