Navigation devices for the visually impaired.
Project: Wayfind – Smart Eyewear + Cane for the visually impaired
Date: Fall 2016
Studio: Product Design 3 Leonard Wozniak
Using technology, how can a collection of everyday objects help the visually impaired communicate new and unfamiliar objects in unknown spaces?
Most of the people that I interviewed for this project are taking public transportation and often times walking with a mobile device and a white cane. A primary concern for more than half of my interviewees had to do with cardinal directions and the challenges that come with navigating unfamiliar places.
