--- DISCONTINUED. (Verified 01/2009) RETAINED IN DATABASE FOR REFERENCE. --- FlipperPort is a video magnifier designed for use by individuals with low vision. FlipperPort consists of two main components: a high resolution color camera that captures the image, and a pair of lightweight glasses that display the magnified image for the user. The glasses provide a bright, crisp image without reflection or glare. The user can control the level of brightness. The image is displayed in full color with a magnification range of 6 to 30 times original size for near objects and 1 to 12 times original size for distance viewing. The rotating digital camera captures and enlarges the image in any position with automatic focus. Users can select between three different contrast options and control the level of magnification with the turn of a knob. The system is self-contained, portable, and easy to use. The user simply wears the glasses and points the camera. No assembly is required. The unit can also be connected to a television for magnified viewing or to a computer monitor (additional hardware required). OPTIONS: Flipper Stand (see separate entry). POWER: Uses a battery for three hours of continuous use. WEIGHT: The glasses weigh four ounces.
