---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of cane that only uses light and ultrasonic sensors to guide individuals who are blind or have low vision. The Eye Stick reinvents the traditional cane. It consists of just a handle that is comparable in size to a flashlight. The Eye Stick uses light rays and ultrasonic sensors to identify obstacles and determine distances to help individuals who are blind or have low vision to navigate their surroundings safely as they would with a cane. The device's ultrasonic sensors are unaffected by rain, fog, or other climate problems. Projected light is used to prevent collisions with other pedestrians. The Eye Stick delivers information about hazards such as barriers and changes in floor level as audio feedback via a Bluetooth device and by vibration. The Eye Stick also can scan bar codes or identify paper money through an integrated camera. The Eye Stick is a 2012 Red Dot Award: Design Concept winner.
