This new device comes with various features such as a cover that has an ultrasound radar that makes the device vibrate when there is an obstacle ahead of the user.

And this time, the company also stated their desire to work with people with Alzheimer’s and autism, through a package of solutions and services, trying to improve the quality of the devices in the life of the fans.

Samsung’s president took the necessary responsibility in order to help to create this device, and therefore went to the Tunisian Association of Alzheimer and 3GS BBDO advertising agency, to finally start the project.

The main function of it is being able to stimulate the memory of patients showing early symptoms of disease, making the illness show in an early age. This app enables people to recognize their family and friends through photos and videos.
