Designed by Tomas Moyano and Nicolas Aichino, these sunglasses are outfitted with a GPS function that enables the visually impaired to be directed using auditory cues rather than visual.

Many people who are visually impaired will wear sunglasses to help alleviate the instance of dizziness caused by light. This was taken into consideration with the creation of these glasses that look to make it easier for those with visual impairments to get around town.

The glasses are capable of providing auditory prompts to let a user know of their present location; this can be of valuable use to help ensure they don't stray from their projected course. When the user of the glasses reaches a reference point that has been preloaded, the GPS function will vibrate and allow the user to press the button on the side to hear their location.
