---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a walking cane with an integrated navigation system for individuals who are blind or have low vision. The E-Touch is a touch sensitive and interactive system designed to make navigating in an urban environment easier. The device features an SD card slot where an individual can load maps into the device. The E-Touch beams out guided turn-by-turn directions for the user via a wireless earpiece and tactile feedback through the triangle protrusion on the cane's handle. Once the map is loaded and the destination is keyed in, the user follows the directions to the intended destination. TITLE: The Thorough Guide. WEBSITE: Yanko Design.
