in the development and manufacture of products for people with disabilities,
Orbit Research’s mission is to employ cutting-edge technology to bring to the
community at affordable prices, products that are essential for an independent
and productive lifestyle. This amazing Talking ORION TI-36X calculator was
introduced in September 2005 and is obviously based on the Texas Instruments
TI-36X SOLAR. The ORION TI-36X replaces the
second generation of the ORION TI-34.
Dismantling this ORION TI-36X manufactured probably around 2006 reveals an interesting construction based on multiple, unidentified Integrated Circuits and a huge rechargeable battery.
Don't miss other talking products for vision impaired - the Calcu-Talk and the Vocaid.
Another approach could be found in the Schoenherr Braillotron
using refreshable Braille cells instead the talking voice.
