Mobile app that lends a hand to the blind
For those who are visually impaired, finding an ATM, hospital, hotel or other such facilities requires asking for some help.
A start-up by a group of people in Delhi has come out with an app called Eye-D that can virtually be the eyes and ears for the blind.
The app can also tell users if someone they know is in their vicinity and can help them find their way to office or home and access the internet. There is also a keypad developed so that they can use their smartphones comfortably.
The application is available for free download on Android phones.
