Bionic Glasses

---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To create a prototype of normal-looking pair of glasses to enhance vision for individuals with certain types of low vision using similar technology developed for mobile phones and gaming. Exhibited at the Summer Science Exhibition in Oxford, England, the Bionic Glasses enhance vision for individuals who are blind or have little to no vision left. The glasses are appropriate for common types of visual impairment such as age-related macular degeneration and diabet

Braille Sight

---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of an eyewear system that translates images into tactile feedback for users who are blind or with low-vision. The Braille Sight uses an eyewear system that looks like glasses frames (Frame of Sight) to capture images and then translates those images into tactile images on a handheld pad shaped like the lenses (Braille Pad).

Ultrasonic Goggles

---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of goggles that assist individuals who have low vision to navigate. Researchers at the Universidad Carlos III in Madrid, Spain have developed a pair of ultrasonic goggles that are intended to make it safer and easier for people who have low vision to get around. Individuals with partial sight experience "Terminator-style vision" through the use of two cameras mounted onto a virtual reality headset that is then connected to a small computer.
