Hi-Tech Communications Device from Japan

As Motoko and I were going through security at Hiroshima Japan airport last week I notced the sign below and grabbed a pic with my iPhone.

After being wowed most of the week by a lot of new technology this sign wrapped up the week… sometimes simple is just easier…

This is a form of Etch A Sketch that allows people to write on it and and them clear easily.  With all of the new regulations with air travel and many deaf and older Japanese traveling if is great to see that the security team are willing to communicate with people with hearing disabilities.


I also like this photo since I use a similar device to communicate with my SCUBA students during the class.  You simple write on it and then swipe a lever and it cleans it for them or you to respond.
