Looktel money reader; how the US beat Japan in iPhone technology

Japanese engineers have developed an APP for iPhone users to help the visually impaired read paper bills.      

All you have to do is use the iPhone to take a picture of the bill, and a voice tells you how much you're holding.      

But, when you read the whole story, what's new today is an APP that reads Japanese currency, and a voice that tells you in Japanese how much you're holding.      

It turns out; there is already a similar APP in the US which reads out loud every paper bill from 1 to 100.      

It's called the looktel money reader, and it only costs $2 in the APP store.
