New technology for the blind

IoT technology helps out in many parts of the day to day life. Now this technology might also help the blind to give them a helping hand in their life.

If you like to read up on IoT to see what this means you can find a short introduction here –  Io wikipedia.

A company called Aira has developed a set of glasses that communicates with the internet. These will give the blind person a set of eyes. It gives instructions so that the blind person can walk to the supermarket and pick out the right food product by just looking at them. An Aira agent will guide the person wearing the glasses.

The first persons who have tried these glasses have been very positive to the result. We believe that with the IoT the sky is the limit for how much can be done to assist the blind through technology.
