Cabs for the Blind
The Eric Leong IRIS Concept Cab Transports People Via Text Messaging

{SummaryTitle}

The Eric Leong IRIS is a concept car that uses GPS and text messaging to transport the blind. Once you retrieve a vehicle on your phone, you text in your destination, and this futuristic-looking car will autonomously help you get there.

The Eric Leong IRIS hopefully isn’t too far from the future, because it could help many people—not only the blind, but also low-income blind people due to the fact that the IRIS is non-purchasable and rather, is an integrated system.
