Augmented Reality Glasses to Help the Legally Blind

There is a terrific article in the MIT Technology Review about a prototype for a new device to help the near-blind see and navigate their surroundings. Read it here.

I truly believe that these new wearable electronic glasses that allow people with little sight or who are legally blind to actually see is revolutionizing the industry at amazing speed.

It is a gift from science that these glasses can help legally blind people see people’s faces from up close and afar as well as TV, entertainment, newspapers, books, menus, signs and other reading materials from any distance.  There are a series of these glasses in particular that address all types of vision loss from diabetic retinal disease to ocular and macular degeneration.

I applaud the engineering and development implemented in this revolutionary discovery.
