The project aims to improve the QOL (Quality of Life) for children with special needs through the use of mobile phones, a central ICT device in people's lives.

Children with special needs often require help in areas such as understanding time, communicating, and handwriting. To meet these needs, Fujitsu developed three software modules: »Timer« to help understand time; »Picture Card« to help with communication as well as scheduling; and »Stroke Order« to show the correct order in which to write characters in Japanese. These software modules also use special mobile phone functions that have been designed with attention to the nature of learning disabilities, such as a color filter and the mobile phone's vibration function, to facilitate understanding on the part of the children.
