A Spanish computer engineer Manuel Lucio presented his amazing and thoughtful invention on Twitter, which consists of a curious device to facilitate texting with his grandmother and which he baptized as 'Yayagram'. The device sends out voice messages and the replies come back in a printed form.
COVID-19 has been the most effective on elders, let it be health-wise or in other factors like communication through the latest digital technology. The younger generations picked up where they were lacking and what tech was needed at the moment but it was not the same for elders.
This led a grandson to invent a communication device for her grandmother who is in her 90's and has hearing issues too. He is a software engineer so he decided to go for it and engineered a device capable of sending voice messages via Telegram just by pressing a button.

The device made communication complete and easier by receiving messages from the same social network and then physically printing them on thermal paper "so that you can touch and read it ." This was quite easy for granny and looked like older telegrams to her.

Manuel Lucio, the grandson also said that although his grandmother could telephone her relatives, she "does not handle herself well and does not hear very well so this way she can communicate to any grandchild by just plugging the lead. He explained the whole process, usage and some technicalities in a thread on Twitter and people just loved his efforts and the device for such a beautiful cause.
