Brighting / detection for blindness


The blindness use white cane to detect obstacles while going outdoor. But there are some obstacles which can not be detected by the cane, like things are suspended, ex. payphone, trees’ trunk , and signboards. Not being notice, leads blindness to bump on these suspended objects, which is dangerous. Some even wears a cap to prevent it from happening. Brighting is a watch with infra-red sensors on both sides to detect suspended objects, only activated when your hands were raised and swing at the same time. This design can bring safeness to people who has poor sight.
