Itanagar, 19 March : The Arunachali student who brought laurels to the state has more good news to share with us as the Chief Minister, Pema Khandu has offered full financial support to him to develop the gadget. Khandu recently met Anang Tadar, a class XI student of New Galaxy Academy, Nirjuli who had left everyone stunned with his innovation of a gadget called Goggle for Blind (G4B).
The invention which was adjudged the most innovative award in recently concluded Regional Level Science Festival at Regional Science centre Guwahati was awarded the Dinanath Pandey Smart Idea Innovation Award. Impressed by his innovation, the National Innovation Foundation (NIF) and UNICEF are willing to launch G4B in the market and had asked Anang for creating few prototypes to test on the blind people. To develop these prototypes, Anang who comes from a poor family approached the CM for help.
The Chief Minister assured that there will be no lack of support and that he could fully devote his time and energy to develop the machine that would bring joy to visually impaired people.
When CM asked what motivated him to develop the gadget, the boy recalled a blind girl whom he saw few years back. Saddened at her plight, Anang decided to use technology to help visually impaired people. The technology he chose was similar to parking sensors used in cars.
Since then after developing the gadget, he has participated in National Level Science Exhibition at Rashtrapati Bhawan, New Delhi, on March 6 where Honey Bee Network, which is in collaboration with NIF, Society for Research and Initiatives for Sustainable Technologies and Institutions (SRISTI), Global Youth Action Network (GYAN) and UNICEF were quite impressed with his innovation.
