NAVIGATION / Shoes

NAVIGATION
NAVIGATION

People with visual impairment always face various difficulties when they go out. Healthy people can get to their destination with the help of road signs and navigation apps. But for the visually impaired, even with the help of the guide dogs, they can only go to the destination that the guide dogs are familiar with.

Navigation is guiding shoes for the blinds. Using inflating air bags, they squeeze users’ feet to indicate the next direction for the blinds. At the same time, the corresponding parts will emit fluorescence to prompt passers-by at night.
