Speaking Glasses / glasses for the blind

‘Speaking Glasses’ is designed for the independent and free life of the blind.

The blinds explore the world by listening through ‘Speaking Glasses’ not by looking.

Eleven very tiny cameras can detect what normal eyes should see.
These camera views are transferred to voice and sent to ears.

Above cameras, there are ultrasonic sensors which prevent the blinds from hit by dropping.

Besides, sides of glasses have touch controllers for zoom in/out by dragging back and forth.
Also, Speakers have on/off button and module the volume by touching.
