It's brilliant to see the number of industrial design concepts that have stepped up to the challenge of aiding the visually impaired, and the Project Bee Navigator is yet another intriguing invention that aims to operate in a fashion unique to its contemporaries' performance. This device is not a complex one which strives to completely overstimulate the user, but rather it benefits him simply by acting as a helpful guide.

Tao Lin's creation can of course mark and save locations with arm movement commands, but it can also inform the user of any obstacles in front of him. When embarking on a journey, one can program the wrist-worn GPS system for optimized foot, car or bus routes, giving the owner of the Project Bee Navigator options and independence.
