SHIELDoctor / Vision care technology product

SHIELDoctor
SHIELDoctor

The technology becomes more and more prevailing; however, eyesight of children deteriorates. SHIELDoctor uses simple IR distant sensor and wireless Bluetooth transmission to form a layer of shield invisibly and to protect our health of eyes.

While SHIELDoctor senses that the user is over the secure distance-60cm with the screen, it will transmit signal to the case of the computer and make the screen get blurry. It simulates suffering that near-sighted eyes cannot see clearly to make children go back to the secure distance, and then keep on using computer. This is a chance of education and a way to protect shortsightedness.
