Right now, about one out of every 28 Americans suffers from some sort of visual impairment. Some products try to tackle this problem by alerting users of obstacles, but all of them have serious flaws. They’re bulky, detect obstacles only directly in front, or only alert their users in one way.

What it does

To address the flaws in existing solutions, we created Third Eye, a 360 degree Realsense-based obstacle detector, which alerts users with haptic and audio feedback. It tells users which directions are safe to walk, as well as giving them haptic cues with small motors.
