Collaboration Builds Note-Taker

by JUSTINE GARCIA

A team of students from the Center for Cognitive Ubiquitous Computing in the Fulton Schools of Engineering has created a technology device to assist low-vision students with note taking. The Note-Taker team effort won them the top award at the Imagine Cup 2011 for Software Design. David Hayden, the inventor and a low-vision student, created the device after struggling with note taking in the classroom. Several students at ASU now use the device in class.
