The 'Visually Impaired Assistant' is a brilliant device that uses Video Motion Detection technologies to guide the way for those with visual handicaps.

Armed with a voice-operated GPS receiver, four small cameras and vibrating alerts, this intelligent mapping system would definitely be quite handy! The two vibration systems used within the palm-worn product communicate directions to the wearer by signaling upcoming obstacles. Chargeable with a wireless mat, the 'Visually Impaired Assistant' is fashionable and functional.
