Orbit Research Introduces iBill Talking Banknote Identifier

Priced at $99, the iBill is a breakthrough in independent living for
the blind and visually impaired
WILMINGTON, Del., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Orbit Research today
announced the introduction of the iBill, the world's first affordable
Talking Banknote Identifier for the blind and the visually impaired.
Priced at $99, the 1.5 ounce, pager-sized iBill represents a
breakthrough in enabling the blind and the visually impaired
community achieve independence in the everyday necessity of using
paper currency, which sighted people take for granted. At about a
third of the cost of existing devices, the iBill offers unrivaled
features, ease of use and accuracy of identification.

The iBill is an exceptionally convenient and affordable solution that
can be used by each and every blind or visually impaired individual.
Measuring just 3 inches by 1.6 inches by 0.7 inches, the ultra-slim
and compact "key-fob" design provides the ultimate in convenience,
allowing it to be carried unobtrusively in a pocket, purse, clipped
to the belt or attached to a keychain or lanyard. Among the features
that set it apart from other such devices are the extremely high
accuracy (better than 99.9%) and the near-instantaneous speed (less
than one second in most cases) with which it identifies banknotes.

The iBill is designed with the sole purpose of providing the
simplest, fastest and most accurate means to identify U.S. banknotes.
Its unique ergonomic design permits easy and intuitive use without
the need for any training or practice. Upon insertion of a banknote
into the device, its denomination is identified at the press of a
button. Based on the user's preference, the denomination is announced
by a clear and natural voice, or by tone or vibration for privacy.
The unit identifies all U.S. banknotes in circulation and recognizes
them in any orientation. Banknotes in poor physical condition are
indicated as unidentifiable and are not misread. The unit is also
upgradeable to recognize new banknote designs.

The iBill achieves all of this while operating on a single, commonly
available AAA battery which lasts for over a year with typical use.
Its durable construction and sealed design ensure trouble-free use.
The unit is backed by a one-year warranty from Orbit Research, and
toll-free customer support.

"Orbit Research has once again demonstrated its commitment to the
development of breakthrough technology and products that make a
direct and measurably positive impact to the daily lives of the
community we serve," said Michael Nolan, President of Orbit Research.

Orbit Research has filed patents on the technologies employed in the
iBill, which enable its groundbreaking compactness, performance and

Samples of the iBill are available for evaluation now and Orbit
Research is accepting orders.

Specializing in the development and manufacture of products for
people with disabilities, Orbit Research's mission is to employ
cutting-edge technology to develop innovative and affordable products
that are essential for an independent and productive lifestyle.
