Wearable device helps the blind see faces
October 22, 2016
Across the world there are about 246 million people with low vision. This affects their ability to do simple daily tasks.
Researchers in the United States have designed a wearable vision device that can help people who are legally blind read and recognize faces. It can also help them do daily tasks more easily.
The device has a small camera that recognizes what the user is looking at and then reads it out to the user through a earpiece.
The user can activate the device by just pointing a finger to the object or text and tapping a button.
