These high-tech glasses allowed a legally blind woman to see her newborn baby boy. The video of Kathy Beitz went viral on YouTube last month after it was uploaded to YouTube by her sister. In the video, the 29 year old is wearing eSight Eyewear.
Developed by an Ottawa-based company, the computerized glasses allow blind people to actually see. The technology embedded in the electronic eyewear enhances vision combining a camera, advanced computing and display technology that provides real time video to people losing their sight. The high-tech glasses also give users control over the images they see -- enhancing, magnifying and adjusting. The hands-free mobile eyewear give users a chance to see things they normally wouldn't, like the words to read their children bed time stories.
