A man creates a Yayagram for his grandmother to help her communicate with her loved ones

Countries have imposed movement restrictions as a result of the ongoing pandemic, making it difficult to visit or see loved ones. Not everyone can use smartphones to communicate with their loved ones, especially the elderly who face this problem.

This caring grandson had invented a new device for his grandmother’s convenience in contacting loved children as a solution to her problem. Manuel Lucio Dallo, a Plastic SCM employee and software engineer, created the ‘Yayagram,’ a device that allows us to send voice messages and receive printed responses.

Manuel’s grandmother, Felisa Romano Martin, is 96 years old and suffers from hearing loss and arthritis. As a result, using a smartphone to communicate with her grandchildren, whom she adores, is difficult for her. They, too, are unable to see her because of the pandemic’s restrictions.

Manuel had tweeted about his invention and received approximately 10,000 likes. He had explained how it works as well as the meaning of the device’s name. Yaya means “granny” in Castilian, according to him, and “gram” is a part of the name of a messaging app called “Telegram.”

#3. The device is able to record voice messages and send them and then it prints the received messages.

Telegram is used for communication. When you need to send a message, connect the jack to the port that corresponds to the person you need to speak with. To record the message, you must press and hold a button until we say what we want to say. When you release the button, the message will be sent and received by the recipient’s telegram app.

This device, like the old telegram method, only receives text messages, and when the children respond, the response is printed on thermal paper and sent out for the granny to read. This appears to be a truly remarkable device. Granny Felisa finds everything to be very simple and easy to use.

LEDs, he said, were used to indicate the device’s functions, such as receiving and recording messages, receiving power, and when it was connected to the Telegram app. The Raspberry Pi 4 computer serves as the device’s foundation, and Python is used to monitor it as well as receive and send messages. There are also jack connectors. The box contains LEDs, analog, cables, a printer, a microphone, and a button.

He had clearly tweeted the creation process, allowing anyone who needed one to do so as well. He also suggested building a connector rather than soldering directly to the rasp pins because it could break.

Manuel’s grandmother is a resident of Manuel’s home. Others find it difficult to come see her because of the restrictions. Furthermore, because she finds it difficult to use a smartphone, this device is extremely beneficial to her.

He stated that he would create an Instruct Ables project to assist anyone interested in making the device for their grandmother. This invention and creativity astounded many people. In this pandemic, he has made it simple for his grandmother to communicate with loved ones.

It’s not as if older people don’t have access to smartphones. Smartphone usage is increasing among adults aged 65 and up, with a range of 18 to 42 percent. Because of her hearing impairment and arthritis, Felisa had difficulty using a smartphone.

Manuel has mentioned in some of his responses that granny couldn’t figure out the push button thing and that he’ll work on it, as well as that she understood the jack well. He also stated that he wanted it to have an old-fashioned look, similar to a small telephone switchboard.
