M.E / White cane (Product)


The product that was made to serve as the ears and eyes for the visually impaired is the white cane. We integrated the characteristics of the tilting doll and the camera and turned it into a smart device. With the tilting doll function we got rid of the need to pick up the cane after dropping it. Using the camera the user can hear what is ahead through computer generated voice. Also, when the camera takes a picture it is analyzed through big data and the result is delivered to the user. The stored data will remember the route and will be able to notify you by voice when you tap the cane in the same place.
