Iranian inventor makes gadget that translates books and images

Iranian inventor Ramin Sedighi claims he has invented a small device that allows books to be heard aloud.

The idea behind the tablet sounds a lot like a the marriage of a Vtech kid's toy and Amazon's Kindle.

The device is described as a computer system that pronounces, translated and explains the images and words of a book located on it by scanning the images and words with a pen attached to the device.

The description of the invention is not quite clear as to how exactly the device will function. Sedighi claims text can be placed physically on top of the device, at which point its scanned and translated.

In addition, the inventor states the device contains 512MB of internal memory and a SD card slot for external cards for storing books.

Other features of the device include a USB port, audio output and electricity or battery powered input. The device is sized like a 13-inch notebook and is intended to be used on the go.
