Lionel Messi Will Assist Blind Fans To See Again After Making A Huge Gesture
Argentine superstar Lionel Messi fulfilled the dream of Cristian Guglielmett, a visually impaired man who, by means of a letter, asked the footballer to donate a portable device with artificial intelligence that reads any printed or digital text with the press of a button.
Messi is a long-time ambassador of OrCam Technologies, producer of the portable device that has the power to change the lives of blind and visually impaired people.
As Argentine publication La Capital de Rosario first reported, upon hearing of Guglielmett’s request, Messi didn’t hesitate to donate the device to his fellow countryman.
They add that the equipment, which is worth around $4000 in total, is set to arrive later this month.
Thanks to the AI technology within, the device can massively improve the day-to-day lives of those who are most affected by sight issues – including Guglielmett.
The man from Rosario has already defied the odds, having gone on to study law – and later graduate from university – despite going blind at the age of 17.
