The “Augmented Reality Game for Identifying Early-age School Kids with Dyslexia” is a device aiming to address the problem where students with dyslexia in Hong Kong often miss the golden time for treatment due to delayed diagnosis. The device is tailor-made for K2 to Primary 2 students, and a text-based presentation is kept to the minimum in designing the interface of the AR mobile application in order to facilitate early identification of potential dyslexia cases. Apart from using stereoscopic toys which are produced with 3D printing technology and image recognition technology to conduct testing, AR technology will also be adopted to boost interactivity and add extra fun. Parents and schools can make reference to the test results to plan for the future development of their children and students as early as possible with the aim of grasping the golden time for treatment and enhancing the efficacy of therapies.

The “A.I.CAMe” is a low-cost portable smart device that uses artificial intelligence image recognition technology for on-site situation analysis, thereby enabling the visually impaired to have a better understanding of their surroundings and making it easier for them to get around on their own. The unit cost of each device is as low as HK$350. The device can be installed directly on the crutches of the visually impaired and no additional hardware is required. It is expected that this practical and low-cost device can help solve the problem of travel inconvenience encountered by the visually impaired, and serve as an ideal tool for them to explore our city independently.
The Greater Bay Area STEM Excellence Award (Hong Kong) was organised by the Hong Kong New Emerging Technology Education Association (HKNETEA) to enhance students’ creativity and innovation in STEM, and recognise young STEM talents for their efforts.
