Shoes for the Blind People? This is true, a Researchers from Hewlett - Packard Labs in Bangalore, India named Anirudh Sharma developed a shoe that is equipped with proximity sensors and vibration which is normally found in mobile phones. It would help the blind people to searching for a right direction. It's really an awesome invention for blind people to search for a right direction.
Shoes that are called by Le Chal (meaning " Take Me There" ) is later able to show directions to a place at the same time commemorate the wearer if there is something in front to a distance of 3 m ( with the help of proximity). http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif
How it works? vibration sensors placed on the front and right and left side and then when the wearer should move forward so the vibration sensor in the front will be active, as well as having to turn right / left side of the sensor will be active.
Le Chal certainly can not work alone as a navigator, It's should work together with an available Android application that will synchronize with these shoes.
there's another cool stuff which could help vision impaired people such as this Bionic Eye Glasses. So let's wait for these Le Chal Shoes.
