Inventions that deliver solutions

Did you know that a group of Hong Kong secondary students have invented a toy that can be used for the early identification and treatment of dyslexia?  How cool is that?

Using augmented reality mobile applications, image recognition technology and 3D printing, their toy, C.A.R.D. - Augmented Reality Game for Identifying Early-age School Kids with Dyslexia was a winning project of the Hong Kong Student Science Project Competition 2020 organised by the HKFYG, and is one of the local innovations and research achievements to be showcased in the Virtual InnoCarnival 2020, being held from today through 31 December 2020.
The HKFYG and the Hong Kong Science Park are campaign partners of this large-scale online event organised by the Innovation and Technology Commission, bringing to the public a series of interesting and inspiring InnoTech workshops and webinars. There are also virtual exhibitions of other amazing inventions like Super Skin for skin lacking tactile perceptual ability; Wearable Exoskeletons for motion assistance; a Smart automatic parking system for electric vehicles; and a Toilet flushing water sanitization system.
Through the wide array of activities, we hope you will appreciate the contributions of Hong Kong's local innovation and technology (I&T) industry that seeks solutions to common problems that benefit us all. Log in and explore all this and more at
