In a world that is crowded and fast-pacing, visually impaired people experience hardship with mobility. Luckily, thanks to the technological advancement, these people’s lives are significantly enhanced.
Now, except for a cane or a service dog that helps them navigate around, visually impaired people can use newest high-tech option provided to them by Austrian based company named Tech-Innovation.
This company has created shoes with a built-in sensor that alerts visually impaired people, via vibration or sound, when an obstacle is detected.
The product, named InnoMake, have the sensors react when an obstacle is detected at the maximum distance of four meters and minimum distance of half a meter. The sensor fits into a special slot within the shoes and comes with a rechargeable battery which lasts up to a week before it need to be recharged. It only takes three hours for the battery to get fully charged.
The shoes and the sensor come with an app which is free of charge. The users can adjust plenty of settings through it, such as how far away from objects they need to be before they get alerted.
If you wonder what happens when the weather is rainy or snowing, the creators thought of it and made the sensor water-resistant. If users opt to use the intelligent mode, the sensor would get deactivated whenever they are seated and would again activate when it senses movement.
There are several shops around Austria which let users try the shoes on before they buy them.
This innovation truly is a life-changing one.
