Sunday, February 23, 2014

In this video released by The Moscow Times, an 18-year old student at a university in Moscow, Russia showcases his inventions designed to help people who are blind navigate independently. His creations include an electronic walking cane that scans the surrounding area allowing the user to know the proximity of objects, and an orientation system that uses infrared sensors to ‘show’ the user the location of important places, such as pharmacies.
