Ingenious inventions are a shortcut to the future. Raymond Kurzweil is directly connected to the world of the future. One of the greatest current inventors, thinkers and futurists, he has been publishing his predictions about the future with suspicious accuracy for more than 30 years. In total, he owns more than 400 patents. Among other things, he invented the OCR program for character recognition, the first CCD flatbed scanner and the first speech-to-font converter for the blind.
The first user of Kurzweil's reader for the blind was the legendary musician Stevie Wonder. At the same time, the unique invention became the basis of a long friendship between two geniuses – a genius inventor and a genius musician.
