Smart wand made by a blind engineer

WeWALK is a smart wand made by blind engineers for the blind. It is equipped with an ultrasonic sensor on the handle, and when there is an obstacle above the height of the chest in front of the eyes, it notifies through vibration. In addition, it connects voice support and Google Maps to serve as a navigation system.

Around the world, 2.5 billion people are blind, including 39 million people who are blind. Kursat Ceylan, the developer of WeWork, explained that although technological advances such as flying cars have recently attracted attention, the visually impaired still only had tools like ordinary canes.

With this IoT wand, you can quickly get information about the subway exit you should go to, how many buses to take, and what stores are around you. It is a gadget that acts like a light in the dark. WeWork connects with its own smartphone-specific app via Bluetooth. You can also run apps and make calls through the touchpad. It is said that Uber, a vehicle sharing service, will also be supported through an update in the future.

Inside this product, a three-axis gyro sensor, a three-axis accelerometer, and a three-axis magnetic compass are built-in. The price is $499. Related information can be found here .



Through the monthly AHC PC and HowPC magazine era, he has watched 'technology age' in online IT media such as ZDNet, electronic newspaper Internet manager, editor of Consumer Journal Ivers, TechHolic publisher, and editor of Venture Square. I am curious about this market that is still full of vitality.
