Inspiration

285 million people are estimated to be visually impaired worldwide: 39 million are blind and 246 have low vision. (WHO Fact sheet, Aug 2014). Many of them are intelligent, smart and passionate. They all want to contribute to the society. So as a society its our responsibility to enable them to do so. With this inspiration we are making a device that will enable those people to walk more freely and make them independent.

What it does

The "Eyes!" as we call it, is built with sensors to guide visually impaired people while walking. It senses obstacles and notifies user (using voice) about them.
