For the many people who need help reading text and seeing details because of low vision, traditional magnifying glasses work only up to a point. The RUBY video magnifier takes handheld magnification to the next level and beyond. The RUBY’s 4-inch, full color, high brightness video screen makes it outstanding for reading bills and writing letters and checks. It is so small and unobtrusive that it easily slips into a pocket or purse as the perfect traveling companion for visiting the grocery store, the pharmacy, the bank, the library, bookstore, restaurant, or anywhere else.
The RUBY is easy to use for those who are unfamiliar with technology products. Just turn it on with one button, place it over an object, and adjust enlargement to your preference with the easy zoom button. The RUBY stays flat on the table or can be held over your reading with the fold-away handle. The magnified image or text appears in the display window. With only one button, you can adjust the screen from full color for viewing pictures to any of four high contrast text modes.
- Flip out the convenient handle and use the RUBY like a conventional magnifying glass, holding it above a page or object – but see everything with enhanced contrast and NO DISTORTION.
- Press the Freeze Frame button to capture an image and bring it close for comfortable reading. This is ideal for reading labels of food products on high store or pantry shelves. Take the RUBY to the library or bookstore, and suddenly you can read the titles of books on arm-length-high rows. At the metro station, you can hold it flat to a wall-posted schedule board, push the Freeze Frame button, then bring the RUBY close and take your time carefully reading route information. You will find so many uses for the Freeze Frame feature.
