Sens'it'ive Glasses Enhance the Blind's Perception of Surroundings

Those who are visually impaired must rely more heavily on their other senses to perceive the world around them. These Sens'it'ive Glasses provide another faculty for interpretation in place of the user's eyes.

Opaque and a sleek white in color, these spectacles employ motion-sensing technology to detect when obstructions lie in the path of the user. As the wearer walks, the gadget picks up any relevant physical features that he or she approaches and communicates their existence through vibrating notifications. If an obstacle appears on the right side of the person, the back of the right ear is stimulated. Cyrille Rouffiat's Sens'it'ive Glasses correspondingly pulsate on the end of the left arm when the barrier is on that side. Stats for Obstacle-Detecting Eyewear Trending: Older & Average
