Wristband that could help the blind to see


Technology that helps the blind move around usually focuses on replacing the loss of sight with audio cues.

However, for the visually impaired, the sense of touch is much stronger and it is this that a new wristband depends on.

Created by a company called WearWorks, the wristband uses vibrations to guide people around. It does this through the phones that users carry.
