findway / Smartwatch for the blind

findway

Direction is a very important factor for the visually impaired to find their way. A 'Touchway' guides you to a destination set by moving the screen to use a self-rotatable moving screen. The visually impaired can intuitively recognize which direction to turn while touching the screen using touch. And a road guide function utilizing voice and vibration provides a smooth road guide for the visually impaired. Also, it is a clock-type design that is used more closely with everyday life, unlike conventional assistive devices for the disabled. This helps blind people walk on their own unfamiliar paths away from their dependent lives.
