The conceptual 'Theia Vision' has been designed as a piece of equipment for those with visual impairments to make use of when navigating through the streets of the city to stay safe and aware.
The device works by being clipped onto your glasses or sunglasses and instantly translating visual information into auditory prompts to help the user interpret their surroundings. The unit features five modes that will help users to get through their own city or perhaps a new one if they're traveling.
The conceptual 'Theia Vision' device is the design work of Karan Chawla and Rishabh Doshi, and identifies the need for more solutions for those with a lack of full vision to keep them feeling confident about their abilities when going on with their routine.
