Kinecthesia - technology for the blind

    Two students at the University of Pennsylvania, Jeff Kisk and Eric Berdinis, figured out how to use Kinekt to help blind people. They connected it to the motors located on the belt, which vibrate when there is an obstacle in front: the closer the obstacle, the stronger the recoil. Thanks to this, blind people can navigate in space.

    Jeff and Eric are currently working on the second version of the project, as in the current version the controller is also placed on the belt, which is not very convenient due to its size. As it became known, several representatives of venture funds have already met with them, but there is no final data on the negotiations.

    Well, one can only hope that this project will go to the masses, and it will become a little easier for thousands of blind people.
