Compact, lightweight, and portable, the Franklin Bill Reader is a must-have anywhere a cash transaction may be required. In stores, taxis, restaurants, or dry cleaners, the Bill Reader will allow its user to purchase with confidence. It allows visually impaired consumers to tender the right amount of cash at the end of a transaction, to verify and count any change received, and to sort or count their dollar bills any time. Franklin's BR-1000 relies on Evolution Robotics' object recognition technology to identify all current and recent versions of U.S. paper currency (including one, two, five, ten, twenty, fifty and one-hundred dollar bills) and then speaks the value to the user in English or Spanish.
