These revolutionary glasses apply 3D stereoscopic information technology to the field of visual aids. The glasses transmit information regarding the surrounding environment to the brain using specially coded stereo sound. Cameras located at the front of the glasses collect images of obstacles, vehicles, people, banknotes, etc. and convert these into sound impulses which are transmitted directly to the brain using bone-conduction headphones. This device is a crucial aid to blind people, enabling them to travel more easily and navigate complex unfamiliar environments. The lightweight plastic titanium material and human-friendly touch control system make these glasses a pleasure to wear.
