Natalia Ponomareva is doing her best to make sure that being blind doesn't mean living in the dark with her Touch&Go Navigation System. This innovative navigation system combines a tactile handset with an earpiece for added assistance in crowded and confusing cities.

The Touch&Go Navigation System features a hand-held display. Touching the display is like touching a map: the small dot in the center represents the user and the other dots are streets. The earpiece provides added support for working out sticky situations. Being blind doesn't mean you have to be lost in the dark anymore. Stats for Handheld Directional Aids Trending: Older & Chilly
