GO | House Companion / Wearable Technology

GO | House Companion
GO | House Companion

GO is a wearable technology designed to be a household companion for individuals with vision loss. GO stands out from current visual aid products because it identifies objects surrounding the user in their home through auditory feedback. Its object detection technology also allows it to locate objects around the house relative to each other. For example, it can indicate that a phone is on a table. Being a wearable technology, GO makes life at home more accessible and convenient for the visually impaired by giving them a more independent living experience.
