A Chinese company has developed special glasses which help people who are blind better understand their surrounding environment and get around more easily, Red Star News reported on May 30.
Thanks to a camera installed in the specially made glasses, dedicated online customer service staff can see where the user is going, tell them where they are, how they can avoid obstacles and reach their intended destination.
Moreover, using voice commands, users can have the glasses identify articles and money, provide high precision positioning and navigation services, as well as “read” words in books and newspapers for them.
On May 29, 55 people with vision disabilities tried the glasses at the office building of Chenghua Disabled Persons’ Federation in Chenghua District of Chengdu, capital of southwest China’s Sichuan Province.
