Project Title: Third Eye for the Blind

Project Creator: Muhammed Azhar

Short Description: This technology detects nearby obstacles and notifies the wearer with a vibration/buzzer sound. As a wearable technology for blind people, it may resolve issues of existing systems such as white canes (may easily break) or guide dogs (expensive).

Project being tested successfully with a visually impaired person

Response: I think this project is great, because it is an affordable option that can help many people. The concept of wearable detectors seems incredibly promising.

Like the creator mentioned, an improvement that could be made would be to combine the devices into one piece, in the form of a jacket. Wearing the detectors on the legs could also help the wearer with changes in slope or obstacles on the ground.
