Just because the visually impaired can't see very well doesn't mean that they can't perform everyday chores such as cleaning up the house, they simply need tools that address their limitations; that is exactly what the Vivacuum for Blind does. It is a special vacuum that makes sucking up dirt much more easy and transparent for blind individuals.
Designed by Namsun Do, the Vivacuum for Blind is equipped with a sensor that detects objects and alerts the user through vibrations. The addition of an oscillator and switch-bar allow the user to manually control the strength of the suction to ensure the objects are cleaned properly. The presence of a braille steel wheel and a detachable dust canister also makes using the Vivacuum for Blind much more manageable.
