The Light Stick was designed by Wu Guanghao and is the ultimate walking stick for the visually impaired. This stick makes life much easier for those who are blind by power packing a regular walking stick with helpful technology.
One of the main features of the Light Stick is its obstacle sensor that alerts users of objects ahead of them. There is also a detachable hand grip that can read text and translate it to audio, which is then transmitted to the earpiece worn by the user. The stick also comes with an emergency switch in case of danger.
The Light Stick is not only technologically sound, but also has a sleek design that looks somewhat like a lightsaber.
