New wearable device that helps the vision impaired
June 20, 2017
A new technology called Iris Vision is aimed at helping the visually impaired.
Iris Vision is a wearable device that allows those with low vision to see the world clearly. With a swipe of a finger, those with low vision are able to get close to the world around them.
The technology uses Samsung VR headset combined with software uploaded to a Samsung Galaxy phone. It works at different distances so it can be used to read things, look at a computer screen, look at people's faces, and watch TV, a play or a show.
Users see a bubble appear that they can make bigger or smaller. Then within the bubble, a person can zoom in or zoom back out. The image looks like a giant widescreen TV right in front of the eyes, so it works for people with different eye conditions like macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa, and diabetes related eye diseases.
