Close Up

Boost c For students with poor eyesight, just seeing the letters is half the battle of learning to read. That’s why I’m excited about AbleNet’s Boost, a handheld video magnifier that can make even the smallest type readable. The 4.2 ounce device fits into the hand easily and can magnify anything up to 17-times on its 3.5-inch screen. There’s a freeze-frame and digital anti-blurring technology and an all-day rechargeable battery. It costs $200.
