Opitcane / cane


With the help of this ‘Opticane’, everyday life of the elderly would
become much more comfortable.
Accordingly, the need for tools that can help them is increasing. In particular,
magnifying glass has become a necessity as the sight of the elderly declines.
In case they go out without the magnifying glass, they experience a lot of
inconvenience in their activities.

We would like to suggest you a new approach. The major idea of this project is
combination of a cane with a magnifying glass. If these two items are combined
together, they don’t have to remind themselves to take the magnifying glass
when going out.
