A Blind can use Google Glass to see
Do you love the Google Glasses? Well! Here’s an interesting thing for you that you may use to help any blind, Google Glass development community is now developing apps that will help blinds to see through audible means.
The development community is about to use the vOICe Android app for this purpose, the app will tell things around you with speech as it’s helpful to identify things and proximity using the camera of your Android device. Keep in mind that the vOICe app forces camera to see the environment and you need to use earphones.
Of course it’s not a practical solution, you need two important things for this Google Glass project, first you need to mount camera that will move along your head and second you need to use bone conduction to hear audio. It’s important to note that the headset should be connected with your Android device.
It’s really a worthy idea to try but not a vision, if you’re itching to check how it works, head over to Android vOICe app page here. Blind can now make their life easy now?
