I can only imagine the frustrations of limited traveling independence, but it's inventions like the Munivo Guide for the Blind that can attempt to become one's eyes.
Designed by Calin Giubega, this small and smooth white device fits the contour of the palm of the hand and has a sensitive silicone skin through which it communicates with the user. Exploiting the possibilities of pressure, vibration and temperature that the wearer can feel, the Munivo Guide for the Blind provides simple directions to navigate the visually impaired around corners and obstacles and along their desired trajectory.
