The Hanger Blind Concept Cane has been designed for those with visual impairments to feel safer when they are making their way through the city. The cane works by wirelessly receiving data from traffic lights to let users know when to stop or when it's safe to cross. This is communicated to the user via the handle to provide a stimulation that is non-auditory and non-visual for a streamlined experience.

City infrastructure is changing at an accelerated rate, which is augmenting the way that information is conveyed to citizens to ensure that people of all walks of life feel confident in their surroundings. The Hanger Blind Concept Cane identifies how things could be pushed a step further for those with visual impairments to feel that much safer and secure.
