This Eye Stick has a lens attached on the bottom part.
It is possible to recognize the special things, such as traffic lights, stairs, the subway and so on.
then each signal can be sent to blind people through vibrations.
The blind person can recognize where I am through the Eye Stick and then they can avoid dangerous things
as well as locate their destination.
