#ATIA14: HIMS Releases E-bot Portable Video Magnifier Compatible with Tablets and PC's

At this year's ATIA conference in Orlando, HIMS Inc. announced the upcoming release of their new E-Bot portable video magnifiers. The E-bot can be used to read things up close or at a distance. It also can be used with both Apple tablets, Android tablets, Windows PC's, and Mac PC's. The E-bot can be connected either wirelessly or by USB 3.0, displaying the image from the magnifier on the larger screen. Some of the other notable features include: OCR with built-in TTS for reading documents, a rechargeable battery that can last up to 4 hours, and auto brightness that adjusts to the lighting in your surroundings. Two models will be available, with the OCR features and a remote control included in the ADV model. HIMS will start shipping the magnifiers in March. No pricing was available.
